Musicians from 6 countries in the Celtic fringes of Europe and the West coast of Africa join together to play the most original live world fusion sound around. 

After more than 30 years of mixing African and Celtic music in equal measure, Baka Beyond have become one of the finest danceable bands around, creating the sound of the global village.

The Baka Beyond lineup features a gifted collection of musicians which originate from; UK, Ireland, Congo & Sierra Leone. They've recently been joined by fiddle prodigy Ben Weedon, whose addition to the band re-introduces the excitement of the authentic Celtic sound to their live show which was pioneered by the much loved Paddy Le Mercier.

The band take their influences from the baka pygmies of Cameroon, Celtic song and all types of dance music. Not just a touring band, Baka Beyond have a unique relationship with the baka people, their inspiration, sending royalties to help with development projects, and even touring with baka musicians. Martin and Su from the band spend time every year in the rainforest; singing, playing, recording and learning baka stories. 

Everyone attending a Baka Beyond performance is guaranteed to have a deep, immersive experience and invariably leave with a huge smile!

". . . if you are not dancing, maybe you should have someone check your pulse. The party atmosphere was irrepressible"
