Welsh harpist Catrin Finch and Senegalese kora player Seckou Keita return to Brighton Festival with a special live and livestreamed event

Since the start of their partnership in 2013 the duo have built a formidable global reputation, with two acclaimed albums Clychau Dibon and SOAR capturing a magical meeting of minds and talents within a borderless musical landscape.

Their most recent album SOAR (2018) takes flight on the wings of the osprey, the magnificent bird of prey which recently returned to Wales after centuries of absence, and makes its annual 3,000-mile migration from the coasts of West Africa to the estuaries of Wales – an amazing natural connection which hit a resonance with the two artists.
