Settle back in HOME’s Theatre 1 for night of soulful, swinging fusion as Manchester Camerata team up with Kabantu, Manchester’s finest folk band.
“Kabantu aim to “celebrate the space where different cultures meet”. The Manchester-based acoustic quintet includes classically trained players who met at the Royal Northern College of Music and a virtuoso busker they heard playing in the city. They have developed a fusion style in which global influences are mixed with jazz improvisation and reminders of their classical backgrounds. They are fine technical musicians, but know how to swing, and to sing with immaculate five-part harmonies.”
