Kakatsitsi Master Drummers & Mbilou Concert

Thursday 5 September 2019

8 - 11PM
£10 Adult
£6 Concession

Lyth Arts Centre presents one of Africa’s leading traditional drumming groups, the Kakatsitsi Master Drummers from Ghana, performing with Mbilou, a ceremony leader, spiritual healer, musician and dancer from Gabon to present a unique fusion set.

Mbilou is an ‘Nganga’ (spiritual healer / ceremony leader), musician and dancer from the Bwiti traditional religion of the forest regions of equatorial Africa, modern day Gabon. Bwiti is an ancient shamanic tradition, originally practised solely by the forest peoples of the central African rainforest.

Mbilou will be supported on tour by the Kakatsitsi, Master Drummers from Ghana who will work with Mbilou to develop a fusion set combining Bwiti influences with the accessible drumming groups for which Kakatsitsi have become renowned over 14 previous UK tours.

Tickets can be booked in advance from Lyth Arts Centre https://lytharts.org.uk/event/kakatsitsi-mbilou/
