A gig from Malick Pathe Sow and Bao Sissoko, and Duo Sabil and John Williams. Senegalese Sow and Sissoko are true masters of traditional music. They create an exquisite, trance-like set that is remarkable for Sow's warm, soulful vocals and for the interaction of the two players. Vocalist Sow also plays the hoddu (desert lute), while Sissoko is a virtuoso on the sublime 21-string West African kora. Palestinian musicians Ahmad Al Khatib (oud) and Youssef Hbeisch (percussion) together form the spectacular Duo Sabîl. They are two of the best musicians playing Arabic music today. John Williams is one of Britain's best-loved classical guitarists, he has always been interested in the wider repertoire and collaborates frequently with the Chilean band Inti Illimani and with fellow guitarist John Etheridge playing African music and jazz.
