Abel SelaocoeCello

Charismatic South African cellist, composer and vocalist Abel Selaocoe, shares music from his new album in this special opening weekend recital.

Hae ke kae? (Where is home?) is inspired by the concept of taking refuge in different facets of life as a universal urge. It is about literal homes, politics, family, friends, strangers, religion and all things that help to strengthen identity; a celebration of Abel’s home South Africa and an ode to some of those countries that gave his forefathers refuge in the times of apartheid such as Tanzania, Lesotho, Zimbabwe, Botswana and more. Through the media of cello and voice, Abel creates a sound world inspired by stringed instruments of the African diaspora such as the Zeze violin (Tanzania), Uhadi (South Africa), Sekhankula (violin from Lesotho) together with his profound and powerful voice.
