Abel Selaocoe – cello
Delia Stevens – percussion

Young, vibrant, energetic music that crosses boundaries played by two of Ensemble Deva’s amazing new talents. Plus a world premiere of a brand new piece devised by the youngsters who attended their workshop earlier in the day. A short lunchtime concert to set the pulses racing.

Abel and Delia are bought together by a shared love of music which inspires, pushes boundaries and bridges cultures. They are delighted to present a programme exploring dance through the more unusual combination of cello and percussion which spans centuries, styles and nations. They will also be running a workshop for children in the morning exploring dance and music which will be presented within their lunchtime recital immediately afterwards as part of the performance.
