    Respecting a musical tradition that stretches back to the 13th Century and the Mandinka Empire of West Africa, the amazing Seckou Keita is an established contemporary master of the Kora, the 21-stringed African harp. With his feet firmly rooted in the 21st century and the identity of his heritage clear, Seckou is keen to experiment and develop fresh ideas. 2012 brings a new album, Miro, for release in September and a brand new show featuring an exciting 7-piece band touring in October and November. This project represents a return to Seckou’s family and the original influences that inspired him as a young musician in Senegal – the results are truly magical.

    And in the café bar you can enjoy a unique blend of old rhythms and new ideas connecting us to the mother continent of Africa. This free DJ session is guaranteed to get everyone going on the dance floor and celebrate in style the end of another fantastic Black History Month.
