Inspired by the music of the rainforest the original Afro-Celtic danceband are back to celebrate their 25 anniversary!

2018 is Baka Beyond’s 25th anniversary. In October 1993 their groundbreaking album ‘Spirit of the Forest’ hit the scene to great acclaim. The release is regarded as a classic of the genre. They will be celebrating 25 years of recording and performing worldwide, with a UK tour in the Autumn.

Originally inspired by the music of the Baka Forest People, Pygmies whose music and dance have been celebrated since the time of the Pharaohs. Baka Beyond use the Baka rhythms to fuse music from the band-members’ Celtic and African roots. The resulting music is highly infectious and crosses boundaries of genre, age and ethnicity. Paddy Le Mercier, the fantastic Breton fiddle player, will be rejoining Baka Beyond for their 25th anniversary tour.

We are considering laying on a bus to take people from Narberth to Newport for the event. To register your interest please email info@span-arts.org.uk with ‘Bus – Baka Beyond‘ in the subject line and we will get in touch if we receive enough interest.

Join us at Newport Memorial Hall for a night of joyus uplifiting authentic dance music!

“Baka Beyond are the perfect festival band. . . . great for parties and concerts. They are the full package. Our audience and volunteers love them” – Terry Wickham, producer of Edmonton Folk Music Festival, Canada.
