Baka Beyond 25th Anniversary Tour

Fusing music from the band-members’ Celtic and African roots for the past 25 years, Baka Beyond have become one of the finest dance groups around. Originally inspired by the music of the Baka Forest People – Pygmies whose music and dance have been celebrated since the time of the Pharaohs – the band perform music that crosses the boundaries of genre, age and ethnicity. Baka Beyond’s live shows are not only highly infectious but a joyful celebration of different cultures across the world including dance, percussion, musical virtuosity, videos, and big smiles all round.

‘…with their fiery rhythms, enchanting harmonies and spectacular dancing… Baka Beyond are definitely a feast for the eyes, heart as well as the ears and feet.’ Miami Herald

We are delighted to invite Baka Beyond to The Vale as part of their 25th anniversary tour.

This will be an evening not to be missed! Advanced bookings strongly recommended.

Seeing and listening to their current live performance, Baka Beyond transports you right into the life of the people whose music they celebrate. Projected onto a large screen behind the musicians scenes of forest life provide the perfect backdrop to the music. Gentle percussion and reedy sounds are used to evoke the dawn and the awakening insect and bird life. Vocalists Su and Ellie recreate the wordless sounds of the forest creatures. It was impossible to resist the relentlessly upbeat nature of the music. There were big smiles on screen, on stage, and in the audience as the music progressed to a final grand dance with everyone standing and moving to the intoxicating rhythm.’ - Pete Taberner, live Review, The Bristol Post
