Catrin Finch and Seckou Keita

Friday 29 October 2021

Catrin Finch has been called the “Queen of Harps”, the artist who took a Welsh tradition and renewed it for the 21st century.

 

Seckou Keita, meanwhile, is the most charismatic – and captivating – kora player of our time: an artist immersed in centuries of Senegalese music, who’s amazed and delighted listeners all over the world.

Two great harpists, two great traditions; both united by a passion to communicate. Together, in this one-off concert with the Orchestra, they’ll do exactly that. The world premiere of newly scored arrangements of selected pieces from Catrin and Seckou’s first two albums – Clychau Dibon (2013) and SOAR (2018) – as well as new music, will be featured.
