Adults £12.00 | Concessions £10.00 | Students £5.00

Please note that tickets are no longer available to buy online but can be bought on the door from 6.30pm this evening.
Krar Collective perform a rootsy yet contemporary take on traditional music from Ethiopia based on other-worldy modes and driven by hypnotic rhythms. Led by krar virtuoso Temesegen Zeleke, a former star pupil of veteran Ethiopian legend Mulatu Astatke, fronted by the stunning, soaring voice of Genet Assefa and accompanied
by innovative drummer Amare Mulugeta, Krar Collective create a surprisingly big sound, leading one critic to name
them 'The Ethiopian White Stripes'. With a varied repertoire from gentle ballads to high-energy dance tunes, Krar
Collective is set to surprise and delight.
