Last seen in Nottingham performing a breathtaking and multi award winning collaborative project with Welsh Harpist, Catrin Finch. Seckou is now touring his critically acclaimed 22 Strings album which is a must for all music lovers.

A true master of the kora ��" the West African harp - Seckou, from the Casamance area of Southern Senegal, was a childhood prodigy and has graced the international stage since 1996, earning worldwide acclaim for his kora playing and appearing with a host of fellow artists including Salif Keita, Yossou N’Dour, Miriam Makeba and Neil Finn.

Variously described as a ‘griot (praise singer), composer, djembe master, virtuoso and pioneer’, Seckou is a rare type of musician, seated in tradition whilst constantly pushing the boundaries of his art. His last two albums Miro and The Silimbo Passage hit No.1 in the European world music charts,
and Clychau Dibon, the fruit of his collaboration with welsh harpist Catrin Finch, won multiple awards.
