CARDIGAN music fans are in for a treat with the AKA Trio performing live at Theatr Mwldan on Tuesday, November 26 at 7.30pm.

The AKA TRIO is an international musical summit meeting of three world-renowned virtuosos: Antonio Forcione, Seckou Keita and Adriano Adewale.

Coming from three different continents - Europe, Africa and South America - Antonio, Seckou and Adriano grew up in three different landscapes, speaking three different languages, and were formed by three different cultures and musical traditions.

All these differences have converged in AKA Trio, and the product is 'Joy' (which is the title of their debut album).

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

Seckou Keita from Senegal is one of the world’s foremost kora players, involved in many international projects including his ground-breaking 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 create a joyful, uplifting and life-affirming musical collaboration.

"Three musicians who were meant and destined to play together," says Nigel Williamson, Songlines.

"Music from three continents that sparkles so effortlessly together," says Simon Broughton In his five-star review for the London Evening Standard.

"These free-flowing songs and instrumentals dazzle with a rich musical, almost monastic, minimalism where less actually does mean more," writes Michal Boncza, Morning Star Online.

Tickets are priced at £18 (£17 concessions) and are available now from Theatr Mwldan’s box office on 01239 621 200, on-line at or via the Mwldan app.
