Behind the inconspicuous name lies an international musical summit meeting of three world-renowned virtuosos: Antonio Forcione, Seckou Keita and Adriano Adewale.

Italian guitarist Antonio Forcione has been travelling the world for over two decades, releasing 20 albums and collaborating with many major artists along the way, including such names as Charlie Haden, Angelique Kidjo and the Bulgarian Voices, amongst many others.

Seckou Keita from Senegal is one of the world’s foremost kora players, involved in many international projects including his groundbreaking duo with Welsh harpist Catrin Finch and his Transparent Water project with Cuban pianist Omar Sosa.

Brazilian percussionist and composer Adriano Adewale has collaborated with Bobby McFerrin, Joanna McGregor and Benjamin Taubkin and has composed music for orchestras and dance theatre. Together they cooperate and coalesce to create a refreshingly original international fusion.
