Ngawang Lodup (Tibet)
Ngawang Lodup comes from long line of well-known folk singers from the Amdo region of Tibet– a beautiful but harsh environment high on the north-eastern corner of the Tibetan Plateau known for fine horses, wild grasslands and nomadic culture.
Ngawang learnt his unique repertoire of mountain songs from an early age, listening to his mother singing during the day as she carried him on her back while tending yak and sheep herds. Every evening his musical education would continue when his family sat & shared stories about noble Tibetan heroes defeating cruel warlords and sang songs in praise of the Snow Mountains, after which Ngawang’s brothers instructed him in the ancient art of the Dramnyen (Tibetan six-string lute) and taught him contemporary folk songs on the Mandolin.
Kadialy kouyate (Senegal)
Kadialy Kouyate is a musician, a singer songwriter inspired by the West African Griot repertoire. Born into the great line of Kouyate Griot in Southern Senegal, Kadialy’s mesmerising kora playing and singing style have been appreciated in many prestigious venues as both a soloist and in different ensembles.
Since his arrival in the UK Kadialy has played a significant part in enriching the London musical scene with his griot legacy. He has been teaching the Kora at Soas university of London for the last decade and he has also been involved in countless musical projects both as a collaborator and a session musician.
“Senegalese kora virtuoso/singer Kadialy Kouyaté showcases his fleet-fingered skills on this mesmerizing instrument, complementing it with his hauntingly, darkly beautiful voice.” -Time Out London.
