Episode 228 features an interview with Catrin Finch a classically trained musician from Wales who is credited with bringing her instrument to a wider public while her musical partner Seckou Keita from Senegal comes from a long line of Griots … in fact the Kora has been passed down in his family since the 13 Century. They played Womad 2020 delivering a couple of performances that totally endorsed glowing reviews they have been showered with after playing sold out Concert Halls around Europe and the UK (pre Covid). As Roots World magazine wrote: The interplay between both musicians is fascinating and remarkable. When one performer takes a lead, the other offers support with vibrant arpeggios and harmonies. The cultures of Wales and Senegal may differ, but these artists share their musical histories with honesty and enthusiasm.
