An afternoon of African-fusion with genre-defying cellist Abel Selaocoe.

South African cellist Abel Selaocoe is redefining the parameters of the cello – moving seamlessly across a huge range of styles and incorporating improvisation, singing and body percussion into his genre-defying performances. In this performance Abel joins forces with the musicians of the CBSO to highlight the links between Western and non-Western music, including a performance of his new concerto Four Spirits.
