The very welcome return of a trio who gave Petworth a stunningly memorable evening on their first visit in 2017. In case you need reminding, the AKA Trio is the ‘international musical summit meeting’ of three world  renowned virtuosos…
Italian guitarist and composer Antonio Forcione has been travelling the world for over two decades, releasing twenty albums and collaborating with many major artists along the way, including such names as Charlie Haden, Trilok Gurtu, Angelique Kidjo and the Bulgarian Voices, amongst many others.
Seckou Keita from Senegal is one of the world’s foremost kora players, involved in many international projects including his ground-breaking duo with Welsh harpist Catrin Finch (Petworth Festival 2021), African Express with Damon Albarn, and his Transparent Water project with Cuban pianist, Omar Sosa. 

Brazilian percussionist and composer Adriano Adewale has collaborated with Bobby McFerrin, Joanna McGregor and Benjamin Taubkin and has composed music for orchestras and dance theatre. Together the trio members cooperate and coalesce to create a refreshingly original and beautiful international fusion. 

…a thrilling and joyous coming together of three remarkable musical personalities…’ Songlines
