MUSIC: Ellika Solo Rafael in Vancouver
The Swedish music trio Ellika Solo Rafael is touring the west coast of Canada this summer.
Their music stems from their lives and experiences as musicians in Sweden,Senegal and Mexico and from their meeting. It is ensemble-music in a colourful mix that also highlights the strong musical individuality of each musician. A lyrical, groovy and unique music for dancing, listening to or both.
Violinist Ellika Frisell and singer and kora player Solo Cissokho has been a celebrated duo for years. NOW they are enhanced by percussionist Rafael Sida.
