3 GENERATIONS OF AFRICAN GENIUS TO VISIT HOWARD ASSEMBLY ROOM

The Howard Assembly Room's 3 Generations mini-season brings a trio of legendary musicians from across Africa to Leeds.
 
Elder statesman of West African music, Senegal's Cheikh Lô opens the series on Saturday 30 January. There’s more musical alchemy from West Africa on Thursday 4 February with 'Hendrix of the Sahara' Vieux Farka Touré, and the founding father of Ethio-jazz, vibraphonist and Éthiopiques legend Mulatu Astatke makes an extremely rare live appearance on Wednesday 10 February.
