Kadialy Kouyate is a musician, a singer songwriter inspired by the West African Griot repertoire. Born into the great line of Kouyate Griot in Southern Senegal, Kadialy’s mesmerising kora playing and singing style have been appreciated in many prestigious venues as both a soloist and in different ensembles.

 

Since his arrival in the UK Kadialy has played a significant part in enriching the London musical scene with his griot legacy. He has been teaching the Kora at SOAS University of London for the last decade and he has also been involved in countless musical projects both as a collaborator and a session musician.

 

Fred Thomas studied piano and composition at the Royal Academy of Music and has gone on to become one of London’s most sought-after multi-instrumentalists and composer/arranger/producers. Fred has collaborated with a number of outstanding jazz, classical and world musicians and has also worked in dance and theatre, touring worldwide with Filter Theatre and as musical director with Shakespeare’s Globe. As a producer, he has recorded albums for artists such as Lily Luca, Adam Beattie, Ellie Rusbridge and The Magic Lantern. His most recent compositions, for voice, string quartet and percussion, were commissioned by BitterSuite and Phaedra Ensemble.
