“A palpable sense of rapport and delight in their music-making…leaving the audience clearly exhilarated” – THE SCOTSMAN
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 released this summer.
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.
“…prepare to be astonished…These free-flowing songs and instrumentals dazzle with a rich musical, almost monastic, minimalism where less actually does mean” 5* MICHAL BONCZA, MORNING STAR
