Manchester Collective – The Oracle

Abel Selaocoe – New Work–World Premiere
Trad Music from South Africa, Mali, and the Ivory Coast

Music makes time-travellers of us all.

It connects us to the past, to the land, to ancestors and to forgotten songs. Long before we ever knew we were listening, our mothers, fathers, carers comforted us through song. In the beginning, music is family.

Abel Selaocoe is a sensation. His work has a way of cutting through what we think and tapping directly into millions of listeners all over the world. Now, we present a brand-new show featuring this astonishing musician, his band Chesaba, and the string orchestra of the Collective.

Backed by the drum beat of African percussion, we will explore a litany of music from South Africa, Mali, the Ivory Coast, and take in some of the best loved classical work of the 20th century.

The Oracle is about connection, stories, and about music that spans continents and generations. It is our work at its most joyful. Don’t miss it.

Line-up: string orchestra, electric bass, African percussion, and solo cello

Presented in partnership with Opera North
