An exclusive acoustic solo set from the exceptional and charismatic Seckou Keita, arguably the most influential kora player of his generation.

Seckou gives us the kora in its purest guise, a wondrous instrument that can take the human spirit to a place of deep meditation, stillness and beauty.

Performing songs from his latest album 22 Strings, Seckou explores what it means to be a modern global citizen, and yet to live with seven centuries of tradition and heritage expressed through music.

Africa in the Lounge is the popular live stream concert series produced by African Night Fever & Yaram Arts, which brings the rhythms and melodies of Africa to audiences around the world. Produced in partnership with Wild Stag Productions and Ooosh! Tours.

Presented in partnership with Brighton Dome, Bristol Beacon and Brewery Arts Kendal. Supported by Arts Council England.
