Manchester Collective & Abel Selaocoe: The Oracle

Sunday 24th April

The experimental collective spans continents and generations in a show featuring the astonishing Abel Selaocoe.

 

Music makes time travellers of us all.

It connects us to the past, to the land, to ancestors and to forgotten songs. Long before we ever knew we were listening, our mothers, fathers, carers comforted us through song. In the beginning, music is family.

Selaocoe is a sensation. His work has a way of cutting through what we think and tapping directly into how we feel.

Backed by the beat of African percussion, in this brand-new show Selaocoe is joined by Manchester Collective to present a musical journey that spans continents and generations, past and future.

Featuring stories and original compositions by Selaocoe, alongside masterpieces by Jean-Philippe Rameau, Igor Stravinsky and Mica Levi, The Oracle is ultimately a show about connection.

It’s music at its most joyful and life-affirming.
