noisenight124: chesaba at electric brixton

About the Event

Fronted by virtuoso cellist Abel Selaocoe, Chesaba bring their African, jazz and classical‐inspired music to Electric Brixton.

the venue:
Formerly The Fridge, Electric Brixton is a leading music venue which platforms world‐class acts across a broad range of musical genres, hosting an established roster of artists including household names such as Liam Gallagher, Jorja Smith, Sam Fender, MGMT, and Fall Out Boy.

Electric Brixton is a vital part of London’s music eco‐system and the venue hosts a number of iconic club events including significant support of the LGBTQ+ community.

the music:
South African cellist Abel Selaocoe is redefining the parameters of the cello. He moves seamlessly across genres and styles and combines virtuosic performance with improvisation, singing and body percussion.

Abel is devoted to composing works and curating programmes that highlight the links between Western and non‐Western musical traditions, broadening the horizons of classical music to reach a more diverse audience.

After a recent sold‐out noisenights tour of the UK with his quartet The Bantu Ensemble, Abel returns with his trio Chesaba to present music from his debut Warner Classics album Where is Home (‘Hae Ke Kae’), which explores the African traditions and Western Baroque music that have shaped him.
