We are happy to announce an Astar Artes-Theatre Mwldan-Chapter co-production ….. A breathtaking collaboration between two of the World's greatest musicians - Toumani Diabaté on kora and Catrin Finch on harp.
This is our third project with Theatr Mwldan, the intrepid musical adventurers based in Cardigan, Wales. Billy Cobham & Asere, Catrin Finch & Cimarron were great artistic and box office hits and we expect these upcoming shows to be an awesome experience not to be missed!
Toumani Diabaté is one of Africa’s most important musicians and widely considered the world’s finest living kora player. A performer of exceptional virtuosity and creativity, his pedigree goes back through 71 generations of kora players, from father to son. He has collaborated with Damon Albarn, Taj Mahal, Bjork and the late, great Ali Farka Touré with whom he won a Best Traditional World Music Album GRAMMY Award in 2006.
Catrin Finch, the “Queen of Harps” is one of Wales’ leading international musical ambassadors, she was Royal Harpist to H.R.H. the Prince of Wales from 2000-2004. Her concert appearances with the world’s top orchestras span the globe and she has worked with artists including Bryn Terfel, Sir James Galway and Julian Lloyd-Webber. Catrin’s highly successful recent collaboration with Colombian harp-based band Cimarron toured Wales three times.
Catrin and Toumani, harp and kora, Wales and Mali - a remarkable, unique experience.
