Leïla Martial (voice)/Valentin Ceccaldi (cello)
St Ann's Church
Two stellar French talents unite in the unlikely combination of voice and cello – a rare chance to witness two virtuosi at the height of their talents. Their songs are tableaux that float like wandering souls, and their music leaps from a scream to a whisper: Leïla sings, swings, grooves and scats without clichés, in, around and over the top of Valentin’s deft and precise motifs and percussive rhythms, making use of the entire instrument. Unmissable and exquisitely beautiful.
