South African cellist Abel Selaocoe is one of the outstanding artists of our time, a true virtuoso who moves seamlessly across a plethora of genres and styles, redefining the parameters of the cello. He was recently announced as Southbank Centre’s Artist in Residence in the 2022/23 season, while The Times has said, “I can’t think of one who radiates so much heart and joy as Abel Selaocoe”. Abel’s music-making highlights the links between Western and non-Western musical traditions, and here he is joined by Chesaba, the electrifying trio of African celebration, as they explore music influenced by classical, jazz and African traditions.
