We’re very excited to be welcoming two acts from the Equator Festival to Sounds New next month.
Step out of Canterbury into the depths of Africa on Monday 5 May, as Congolese group Kasai Masai brings infectious dance-rhythms and percussion from Africa to St Gregory’s Music Centre. The five-piece group has a wonderful stage presence and terrific way of engaging and involving the audience in their performances (see the review from when the group came to the Gulbenkian Theatre in 2010 here.) The performance is at 2pm, and includes a free workshop.
Then on Friday 9 May, we’re delighted to be welcoming sarod master Ustad Wajahat Khan to the festival. This exceptional exponent of Indian classical music is the nephew of the late Ustad Vilayat Khan, part of a lineage that traces its history back to the sixteenth century and the renowned court-musicians of the period.
With a special reduction for children and students, these are two gigs you won’t want to miss. Find out more about these and all the other events coming to Sounds New next month online here.
