Formed out of renowned bass player Alec Dankworth’s love of music from the Iberian Peninsula, World Spirit crosses the Straights of Gibraltar into Africa and beyond.
Alec has joined forces with daughter Emily Dankworth, leading tenorist Brandon Allen and world percussionist Paul Clarvis to explore melodies from Africa, South America and other continents from a jazz perspective.
With tunes by Duke Ellington, Bela Flek, Antonio-Carlos Jobim, Abdullah Ibrahim and WC Handy originating from Ireland, Venezuela, Bulgaria, South Africa, Mali and Brazil, World Spirit offers an evening of global song and improvisation. Touring Dorset with Artsreach, the counties touring arts charity.
