Kabantu, meaning ‘of the people’, is a quintet from Manchester who unravel new marriages of music from around the globe, to celebrate the space where different cultures meet. Vocal harmonies from South Africa coalesce with everything from Celtic reels to Brazilian sambas and beyond. Kabantu has performed all over the UK, including at the BBC Proms and on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune. As well as winning the Royal Over-Seas League Ensemble Award, subsequently performing to royalty at the Cadogan Hall, the quintet was delighted to be Selected Making Music 2016–17 and BBC Introducing Artists. ‘Utterly brilliant.’ BBC Radio 3, BBC Proms Katie Foster violin Abel Selaocoe cello Ali McMath double bass, banjo, didgeridoo Ben Sayah guitar Delia Stevens percussion Donnington Priory Newbury RG14 2JE 7.30pm (ends approx 9.30pm) Tickets £20 Buy tickets online here or call the box office 0845 5218 218 (Calls cost 2p per minute plus your telephone company’s access charge) Sponsored by Dreweatts Image © Alex Moldovan
