Harpaphonics launch their new album on Phonic FM’s Roots and Shoots show.
Griselda Sanderson and other members of the Harpaphonics Ensemble will be playing live in the studio on Monday 26th January on Roots and Shoots on Phonic FM between 6pm and 8pm.
This is a new ensemble performing traditional & original music with roots in Scotland, Sweden and West Africa, and featuring the Swedish instrument the Nyckelharpa. Griselda, Nyckelharpa player extraordinaire, will be joined by ace percussionists Sam Powerful Yeboah and Louis Bingham.
26th January is also the day that their great album Harpaphonics is released. Gris, Sam and Louis will be talking onair to Martin Hodge about their music and the project that it is linked with: a donation from each album sale will go to Project Okurase in Ghana, addressing the HIV/AIDS crisis in that country.
We’ll play tracks from the album Harpaphonics on Monday 19th January on Roots and
Shoots 6pm – 8pm as a taster to the live performance the following week.
