Driving afro house, drum and bass beats, bold West African brass and exuberant electronics herald the welcome return of the Afro Celt Sound System who are soaring high with their brand new studio album Flight.
Featuring a dazzling cast of stellar musicians from around the globe, Flight explores the themes of migration – both human and avian – and introduces moving devotional songs alongside their trademark fusion of international folk music, blistering beats and boundless energy.
Simon Emmerson is once again joined by long-term members’ N’faly Kouyaté (vocalist, kora and balafon) and Dhol Foundation founder Johnny Kalsi (drums). The album also features special appearances from the Amani Choir, Stone Flowers and many more!
