Manchester Camerata orchestra are delighted to perform alongside award winning group Kabantu. Kabantu are a group of musicians who are re-inventing global sounds from their multi-cultural home of Manchester. Expect an evening of reimagined classical music including one of Francesco Germiniani’s Concerto Grossi ‘La Folia’ alongside Kabantu’s thrilling original compositions. This intimate performance, and blend of cultures and musical styles, is one not to be missed.

“An ambitious global range.. All sing as well as they play, switching from scat to powerful harmony.” – Robin Denselow, World and Folk Critic, The Guardian

“Audacious, in-yer-face eclecticism… A global experimentalism that is both breathtaking and very refreshing.” – Songlines Magazine
