A MASTER of the Kora and one of the stars of last year’s Rhythms of the World festival is back in Hitchin tomorrow night (Friday).

Kadialy Kouyate – the Senegalese virtuoso of the West African stringed instrument will be at The Sun Hotel headlining an eclectic line up including the fabulously theatrical Lika Sharps and freestyle acoustic instrumental duo Oka Vanga.

Mark and Diane Wearne and ROTW band booker Steve Smither organised the event to raise funds to support “the outstanding work Oxfam do throughout the world”.

Steve said: “I’m a long term supporter of Oxfam and am really happy to assist Mark and Diane to bring together this concert to support this valuable cause.”

Tickets are on sale at £8 from the Hitchin Oxfam shop as well as Harvest Moon and Hitchin Initiative. Entry will be £10 on the door from 7.30pm. The music begins at 8pm.
