July 20 @ 7:30 pm BST£10 – £25
Catrin Finch is one of the world’s greatest harp players, an extraordinary talent and musical adventurer whose career includes both solo performances with the world’s top orchestras and, more recently, sensational award-winning collaborations with some of the greatest global musicians including Edmar Castaneda (Colombia), Toumani Diabate (Mali), Seckou Keita (Senegal) and Ireland’s Aoife Ní Bhriain.
The 6-piece Grammy-nominated Cimarrón, led by vocalist Ana Veydo, perform joropo dance music from the cattle-rearing plains of the Orinoco, rooted in a deep tradition defined by the mestizo mixed heritage of African, Spanish and indigenous cultures. Cimarrón make wild, untamed music that preserves the spirit of freedom found in one of the world’s most untouched regions. Fast-paced and powerful, their music combines impetuous singing, amazing stomp dancing and fierce instrumental virtuosity of strings and percussion.
