Described as ‘Music from the African Village with a London edge’ Kasai Masai brings us the traditional sound of the most remote equatorial villages with an urban twist. Named after a river, Kasai lies in the heart of the rain forest where many tribes still maintain their traditional lifestyles. The Masai, just like the Baka, are another dignified tribe whose lives still centre around a nomadic existence.

Two musical traditions in a world premiere. “East meets West” takes its inspiration from beyond Western Europe and is composed and performed by Jonathan Mayer & Denis Kucherow. The duo gives us a glimpse into the vibrant, living musical heart of the western classical style and features a wide and varied repertoire.
