African Night Fever Presents AKA Trio

AKA Trio is the result of 12 years of friendship between three world-renowned virtuosos: Italian guitarist, Antonio Forcione; Senegalese kora player; Seckou Keita; and Brazilian percussionist, Adriano Adewale. “Three musicians who were meant and destined to play together” as suggested by Songlines.

Together they create intense, spiritual and resolutely acoustic music that transcends musical styles and genres. On stage they will showcase highlights from their album Joy, where “free-flowing songs and instrumentals dazzle with a rich musical, almost monastic, minimalism where less actually does mean more” by Morning Star.

With each performance, AKA Trio takes us on a fabulous journey through Africa, Europe and South America with awe-inspiring, joyful, uplifting and life-affirming performances as well as incredible moments of improvisation.

“Absolutely sublime” Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2

“a palpable sense of rapport and delight in their music-making…leaving the audience clearly exhilarated” The Scotsman

“…Adewale, Keita and Forcione have created something truly magical.”***** RNR Magazine

“An epic trio of virtuosos that spreads their own brand of musical rapture” ****Jazzwise
