Sirocco is pure joy and energy – a great storm of music that celebrates the warmth and diversity of folk traditions across the globe. Guest Director Abel Selaocoe is an inspiring artist – a unique, mesmerising, musical voice. He will be joined by Sidiki Dembele and Alan Keary from Chesaba, and by the Manchester Collective’s string quartet.  The show covers everything from Selaocoe’s arrangements for solo cello to classics by Stravinsky and Haydn, from a set of African folk pieces to a collection of gorgeous Danish folk songs.  Click here for their trailer
