One of world music's top acts, with sales of over one and a half million albums and two Grammy nominations to date, Afro Celt Sound System celebrate their 20th anniversary with a stunning new album and an exhilarating live show that ranges from full-on club energy to moments of intimacy.
'The Source' is undoubtedly their most ambitious album yet and one will take their cross-cultural collaboration and acclaimed live performances to another level. It is the first album to fully celebrate the African and Asian roots brought to the band by long-term members vocalist, kora and balafon player N'Faly Kouyate and Dhol drummer Johnny Kalsi. Along with founder member Simon Emmerson (producer, guitars, cittern), Davy Spillane (uillean pipe, whistles), Ronan Browne (uilleann pipes), Emer Mayock (Uilleann Pipes and Whistle) and Moussa Sissoka (talk drums and djembe) the album also features contributions from a host of other outstanding musicians which together fully demonstrates the eclecticism of the band's music.
