We're delighted to announce that AKA Trio's new album will be our next release on bendigedig. AKA Trio is an international musical summit meeting of three world-renowned virtuosos: Antonio Forcione (Italy), Seckou Keita (Senegal) and Adriano Adewale (Brazil). Italian guitarist-composer Antonio Forcione has been travelling the world for over two decades, releasing twenty albums and collaborating with many major artists along the way, including such names as Charlie Haden, Trilok Gurtu, Angelique Kidjo and the Bulgarian Voices, amongst many others. Seckou Keita from Senegal is one of the world’s foremost kora players, involved in many international projects including his groundbreaking duo with Welsh harpist Catrin Finch, Africa Express with The Orchestra of Syrian Musicians, and his Transparent Water project with Cuban pianist Omar Sosa. Brazilian percussionist and composer Adriano Adewale has collaborated with Bobby McFerrin, Joanna McGregor and Benjamin Taubkin and has composed music for orchestras and dance theatre. Together they cooperate and coalesce to create a refreshingly original international fusion.
AKA Trio will perform as part of the WOMEX 18 opening ceremony under Artistic Director Germán Lopez which this year celebrates tri-continentality as its theme.
'JOY' will release on 24th May 2019. Join our mailing list for more information as it comes out, and visit AKA Trio's website www.aka-trio.com for more information.
