The AKA Trio is an international summit meeting of three world-renowned virtuosos: Antonio Forcione, Seckou Keita and Adriano Adewale.
Coming from different continents – Europe, Africa and South America – the three grew up in very different landscapes, speaking different languages, and were formed by different cultures and musical traditions. All these differences converge in the trio’s new album ‘Joy’, a deeply uplifting affirmation of music as human connection. Guitarist Forcione has been travelling the world for two decades, releasing twenty albums and collaborating with the likes of Charlie Haden, Trilok Gurtu, Angelique Kidjo and the Bulgarian Voices. Seckou Keita is one of the world’s
foremost kora players, involved in many international projects including his ground-breaking duo with Welsh harpist Catrin Finch. Percussionist Adriano Adewale has collaborated with Bobby McFerrin, Joanna McGregor and Benjamin Taubkin and has composed music for orchestras and dance theatre.
