AKA Trio

ANTONIO FORCIONE, SECKOU KEITA AND ADRIANO ADEWALE

The AKA TRIO is an international musical summit meeting of three world-renowned virtuosos: Antonio Forcione, Seckou Keita and Adriano Adewale.

Coming from three different continents – Europe, Africa and South America – Antonio, Seckou and Adriano grew up in three different landscapes, speaking three different

languages, and were formed by three different cultures and musical traditions. All these differences have converged in AKA Trio, and the product is ‘Joy’, a new album which will release in May 2019.

Italian guitarist-composer Antonio Forcione has been travelling the world for over two decades, releasing twenty albums and collaborating with many major artists along the

way, including such names as Charlie Haden, Trilok Gurtu, Angelique Kidjo and the Bulgarian Voices, amongst many others. Seckou Keita from Senegal is one of the world’s

foremost kora players, involved in many international projects including his ground-breaking duo with Welsh harpist Catrin Finch and his Transparent Water project with

Cuban pianist Omar Sosa. Brazilian percussionist and composer Adriano Adewale has collaborated with Bobby McFerrin, Joanna McGregor and Benjamin Taubkin and has

composed music for orchestras and dance theatre.

Together they create a joyful, uplifting and life-affirming musical collaboration.
