Next Wednesday 24th April I'm joined by very special friends from South Africa, Switzerland and Nepal.
Cara Stacey is a South African musician and researcher. She is a pianist and plays southern African musical bows (umrhubhe, uhadi, makhoyane). Beyond her solo work, Cara collaborates with percussionist and drummer Sarathy Korwar in the project Pergola and is a member of the Cape Town-based Shh..Art Ensemble. Released through Kit in 2015, her debut album Things That Grow - featuring Shabaka Hutchings, Seb Rochford, Ruth Goller, Crewdson and Dan Leavers - was a dizzying fusion of traditional South African instrumentation, modern jazz and electronics.
Hailing from Nepal, Roshan Gurung blends traditional Nepalese song with western pop and experimental influences. He is currently studying an MA in composition at Goldsmiths.
