AKA Trio: Joy 

Friday 22nd November 7.30pm | Taliesin


Antonio Forcione:  Guitar and backing vocals

Seckou Keita:  Kora and lead vocals 

Adriano Adewale: Percussion and backing vocals

The AKA TRIO is an international musical summit meeting of three world-renowned virtuosos: Antonio Forcione, Seckou Keita and Adriano Adewale.

Coming from three different continents - Europe, Africa and South America - Antonio, Seckou and Adriano grew up in three different landscapes, speaking three different languages, and were formed by three different cultures and musical traditions. All these differences have converged in AKA Trio, and the product is 'Joy', a new album which will release in May 2019.

Together they create a joyful, uplifting and life-affirming musical collaboration.
