Baka Beyond ~ The Original Afro-Celtic Dance band

This milestone will be marked with a tour in the Autumn when they will be re-joined by their fantastic Breton fiddler Paddy Le Mercier. Musicians from 6 countries in the Celtic fringes of Europe and the West coast of Africa join together to play the most original live world fusion sound around.

The band take their influences from the ?B?aka P?ygmies, Celtic song and all types of dance music. Martin and Su from the band spend time every year with the baka in the rainforest; singing, playing, recording and learning their stories Forest Voices Tour

Everyone attending a Baka Beyond performance is guaranteed to have a deep, immersive experience and they invariably leave with a huge smile ! The current show involves footage of the baka pygmies playing instruments in the rainforest and this audio is mixed in with the live performance.
