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 is both a member of the royal Keita dynasty from Mali(through his father) and a griot (through his mother s family, the Cissokhos, from Senegal). He has built a formidable reputation as an inspired exponent of the kora (The Guardian) and is a brilliant live performer with stacks of charisma (Lucy Duran, Radio BBC3). One of the leaders of the newest generation of African traditional musicians, Seckou combines his own musical heritage with a willingness to embrace the traditional forms and instruments of other cultures. 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 'Queen of Harps', Catrin was Royal Harpist to H.R.H. the Prince of Wales from 2000-2004. Her concert appearances with the world's top orchestras span the globe and she has worked alongside artists such as Bryn Terfel, Sir James Galway and Julian Lloyd-Webber. The harp occupies a vital place in the incredibly rich cultures of both Senegal and Wales. The West African harp the kora played by Seckou is made from a dried gourd and fishing line; the Welsh harp, played by Catrin, is one of the most iconic symbols of a nation steeped in music. Remarkably, both nations share a centuries-old bardic tradition of intricate oral history, expressed through music, song and verse.

They move from Welsh folk tunes to Senegalese tunes with ease and beauty.
Some are tunes from the 1600s Robert ap Huw manuscript, the African kora is believed to have been around since the 1500s and tunes have been handed down from Father to Son for generations
A brlliant album.
Buy it and relax to it, be moved.
This music can be put on as relaxing sonic wallpaper, but that does not do it justice. I had the good fortune to see these two great musicians perform live at Folk By The Oak yesterday. Many, many people came down to the stage and stood in motionless and captivated silence as they watched the interplay and listened to waves of pure music. This is joyful music, yet it can be as demanding as you want it to be, depending on how deeply you let yourself be lost inside it.
I regularly listen to live kora music and love harp music, especially the Welsh form. This CD is a crossover between the Welsh harp tradition and the African kora tradition- the two instruments are not too far apart. The two players here enjoyed themselves and each others music and what appears to be several tracks of jamming work very well, some tracks more kora based and some more harp based.
This is not really background music, you need to sit and let it wash over you and just enjoy it.
