Throw aside preconceived musical prejudices, abandon all attempts to catalogue: a rich chemistry of cultural influences is at work when the Adriano Adewale Group gets together on stage. Rooted in the musical traditions of Nigeria, Angola and Brazil and infused with contemporary European classical and jazz styles, percussionist and composer Adriano Adewale’s music is a global fusion of musical influences.

Touring to support the release of their debut album Sementes, this outstanding international ensemble features Brazilian Adriano Adewale on percussion and vocals, Australian Nathan Riki Thomson on double bass, flutes and kalimba; Kadialy Kouyate from Senegal on Kora and vocals and fellow Brazilian Marcelo Andrade on sax, flutes and rabeca. Together they create a colourful cocktail of infectiously funky rhythms and intimate soulful ballads: this is music to appeal directly to the senses.

'The vibe is exhilarating.'

Manchester Evening News

'Adewale gave an extraordinary performance.'

Jazzwise - Pizza Express Launch Review

'Adewale's compositions are simple but uncliched, featuring different percussive combinations on nearly every track. It's beautifully recorded.'

The Guardian

'Adriano Adewale boasts an imposing collection of firepower yet deploys it with rare restraint.'
