CHESABA (feat Abel Selaocoe) - Marble Factory

CHESABA (feat Abel Selaocoe)

Fronted by virtuoso cellist Abel Selaocoe, Chesaba bring their African, jazz and classical-inspired music to Bristol.

South African cellist Abel Selaocoe is redefining the parameters of the cello. He moves seamlessly across genres and styles and combines virtuosic performance with improvisation, singing and body percussion. 

Abel is devoted to composing works and curating programmes that highlight the links between Western and non-Western musical traditions, broadening the horizons of classical music to reach a more diverse audience. 

After a recent sold-out noisenights tour of the UK with his quartet The Bantu Ensemble, Abel returns with his trio Chesaba to present music from his debut Warner Classics album Where is Home (‘Hae Ke Kae’), which explores the African traditions and Western Baroque music that have shaped him.
