Catrin Finch WELSH HARP

Seckou Keita KORA

A stunning shared musical journey with two world class virtuosos — Welsh harpist Catrin Finch and West African kora player Seckou Keita. The harp occupies a vital place in the cultures of both Senegal and Wales. The West African harp — the kora — is made from a dried gourd and fishing line; the Welsh harp is one of the most potent icons of a nation steeped in music. Both nations share a centuries-old bardic tradition of intricate oral history, expressed through music, verse and song.

From Casamance in Senegal, Seckou Keita has built a formidable reputation as a brilliant live performer with stacks of charisma (Lucy Duran, BBC Radio 3). Catrin Finch is one of Wales’s leading international musical ambassadors. Both artists demonstrate their radical and adventurous musical spirit with this wedding of Welsh and West African musical culture — a collaboration that won the Songlines Music Award.
