Harp Duo Beautifully Mixes Welsh And West African Sounds
Clychau Dibon is a one-of-a-kind album. The first collaboration between Welsh classical harpist Catrin Finch and Senegalese kora player Seckou Keita, the album brings to life an extraordinary combination.
The two instruments have actually a lot in common. Originally from the same musical family, they play central roles both in Wales and Senegal, where oral history is often expressed through music.
The result is an inventive, calm and creative mix — so if you're in the mood for something both soothing and inspiring, Clychau Dibon is what you need right now.
British dailyThe Guardian described the album as "delicate but quietly thrilling," while French magazine Les Inrocks'Stéphane Deschampscalled it simply "wonderful" and "as beautiful as silence."
