CATRIN FINCH & SECKOU KEITA (Cymru/Senegal)

‘Old Welsh harp songs, Manding kora staples, Latin dashes, Celtic arias and more woven together to create something new that also possessed enough depth to sound sage, even timeless.’ Andy Morgan
A stunning shared musical journey between two world class virtuosos - Welsh harpist Catrin Finch and West African kora player Seckou Keita.

From Casamance in Senegal, Seckou Keita has a formidable reputation as “an inspired exponent of the Kora” (The Guardian). Harpist Catrin Finch is one of Wales’ leading international musical ambassadors, and one of the world’s finest players of this most Welsh of instruments.

The harp occupies a vital place in the incredibly rich cultures of both West Africa and Wales and, remarkably, both nations share a centuries-old bardic tradition of intricate oral history, expressed through music, song and verse.

Y bennod nesaf yn y siwrnai gerddorol gydweithiol sy’n cyfuno’r delyn Gymreig gyda’r kora o Orllewin Affrica a dau bencampwr o’r radd flaenaf oll.
O Gasamance yn Senegal, mae gan Seckou Keita enw da fel “Hendrix y kora” (Music News). Mae’r delynores Catrin Finch yn un o gynrychiolwyr rhyngwladol cerddorol arweiniol Cymru, ac un o chwaraewyr gorau’r byd ar yr offeryn mwyaf Cymreigaidd hwn.
Mae gan y delyn safle canolog yn niwylliant hynod gyfoethog Gorllewin Affrica a Chymru, ac yn rhyfeddol, mae’r ddwy wlad yn rhannau traddodiad barddonol hynafol o hanesion llafar cain, wedi eu mynegi trwy gerddoriaeth, cân a phennill.
