The Sounds of the Dolomites

Following the routes of new African sounds

We have always tended to simplify what we don't know. And for us the culture of Africa is too often seen as asingle entity. Yet it is a continent of extraordinary richness and cultural variety, which Chesaba exemplify with their musical project, an exploratory journey into a continent from north to south, from the Ivory Coast to South Africa. The result is an eclectic and explosive blend of cello, kora, n'goni and percussion, of voices and languages - such as Bambara, Zulu, Sotho, Tswana - that combines traditional African music, like that of the griots, with new musical styles, jazz and classical. Their successful debut at Manchester's prestigious Band on the Wall was the start of a series of performances at major festivals that included the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall, Womad and the Manchester Jazz Festival.
