A rare chance to catch an unmissable live set as Gris Sanderson & Juldeh Camera launch music from Traders, their debut CD, which is rapidly gathering outstanding reviews from the mainstream and world music press alike.
Expect an extraordinary encounter where the desert sounds of the West African riti, a one-stringed fiddle of ancient design, meets its European sisters the violin and the amazing Swedish nyckelharpa. Snaking Fula trance melodies from the Sahel’s nomadic herdsmen join tumbling strathspeys and reels from Scottish crofts and dancehalls.

Juldeh Camara (Gambia): vocals, riti, koloko, talking drum
