We have seen Seckou Keita in concert before but tonight at AMATA, the Academy of Music and Theatre Arts in Penryn, the concert was outstanding. Seckou was playing with Omar Sosa on piano and Gustave Ovalles on percussion and the whole audience loved it all. Their new collaborative cd is called Transparent Water and that was what we heard live tonight – fabulous!
A gallery of the evening is not enough. You need to catch them on tour if you can. Our son has known Seckou for many years and learnt both to play the Kora and to make them with Seckou who was delighted to hear that D is now a father of twins! Click on any photo for more detail.
