Details

Blurring boundaries and borders, inspired by the music and poetry of Wales and the UK.

World music collective Kabantu joins forces with innovative Welsh chamber orchestra Sinfonia Cymru to blur the boundaries between genres, taking inspiration from the music and poetry of Wales and the rest of the UK.

Featuring brand new music, written and devised by the players from both ensembles, including new versions of the songs Sospan Fach, Suo Gan and Dafydd y Garreg Wen, Close to Folk is a stunning celebration of people and culture.

The two ensembles forge in this collaboration to unravel new marriages of music from around the globe, celebrating the space where different cultures meet. This is autonomous music, bridging orchestral and traditional folk music with an open book of genres and countries. An egalitarian, collaborative and creative process, bypassing the conductor and composer to give the music back to the musicians, this new sound world defies genre and embraces sheer joy in music from all over the globe.
