Schtumm…. Friday 24th April 2015
Schtumm will put the spring in your step as we welcome Amadou and Group Yakar and Swallow and the Wolf.
Amadou Diagne and his Group Yakar will dish out uplifting rhythmic melodies inspired by Amadou’s ‘honey-smoked vocals’ and West African percussion.
Amadou is a multi instrumentalist who has developed a unique and intricate guitar style which draws heavily on his skills as a percussionist. He has an infectious love of improvisation and an eclectic musical inspiration to draw on when performing. Amadou plays with the hugely talented Group Yakar – Mark Smulian, Steve Laffy and Phil Dawson.
Swallow and the Wolf
Suffolk boy Russell and Australian girl Jess tell stories of every day passions, extraordinary moments and unsung heroes. Their sound is driven and picked acoustic guitar, mercurial, bass heavy piano lines, lo-fi drums, rich cello lines and melodic vocal harmonies.
‘their singing is executed to perfection with both performers in absolute sync with one another…their talent as performers and musicians is undeniable’ – Folkgeek
