AFRO CELT SOUND SYSTEM + The Dhol Foundation

Friday 10th November 2017 - 7:30pm

Formed by Grammy-nominated musician and record producer Simon Emmerson, Afro Celt Sound System are a European and African based collective who’ve been a ground-breaking force in music ever since they started. With sales now topping one and a half million albums and two Grammy nominations to date, Afro Celt Sound System celebrated their 20th Anniversary with a stunning new album, The Source released in April 2016 on ECC Records described as a “colossus of an album” by fRoots. The Source is undoubtedly their most ambitious album yet and one that takes their cross-cultural collaboration and acclaimed live performances to another level.

On tour, Afro Celt Sound System is a live music spectacle featuring a host of outstanding musicians, every bit as energetic and captivating as the album. They played to packed houses on tour last year and delighted audiences at festivals around Europe. They will be supported by their friends The Dhol Foundation who will themselves release a brand new studio album Basant later in the year. TDF deliver a now legendary wall of sound, global rhythms and thumping contemporary beats with the effervescent Johnny Kalsi, the UK’s most celebrated player of the Punjabi dhol drum, at the heart of their live show.
