Where Is Home (Hae Ke Kae) [Signed 1LP]

SKU: #5054197335747

Hand-signed by Abel Selaocoe, his debut album on vinyl weaves threads between baroque music (J.S. Bach, Giovanni Platti, Joseph Dall’abaco), his own compositions and South African hymns.


South African cellist Abel Selacoe combines virtuosic performance with improvisation, singing, and body percussion. He has a special interest in curating concert programs that link non-Western and Western music and move seamlessly across genres and styles.
