Afro Celt Sound System celebrate their 20th anniversary with dynamic new album “The Source”

A pure shot of sunshine, this life affirming, energetic, cross continental fusion signifies a celebratory return to the band’s roots.

Core members Simon Emmerson, N’Faly Kouyate and Johnny Kalsi, return alongside long-standing collaborators Davy Spillane, Emer Mayock, Moussa Sissoko and members of Scottish folk fusion Shooglenifty.

Newcomer Griogair Labhruidh brings gritty, witty Gaelic rapping, pipes and guitar riffs to the mix while and Rioghnach Connolly lends her hauntingly soulful voice and flute skills.
