Guardian: “Seckou Keita provided the most hypnotic instrumental work of the night”

Friday, April 11th, 2014

Seckou amd Salif 2From the review by Robin Denselow in the Guardian of Salif Keita at the Barbican (London) April 2014 with Seckou supporting.

"Seckou Keita, who opened the show, is a British-based kora player who recorded one of the finest albums of last year with the Welsh harpist Catrin Finch. Here playing solo, he sang well and provided the most delicate and hypnotic instrumental work of the night."

Seckou rocked it!
