★★★★★ “a total reset for the mind and heart” The Times on Manchester Collective & Abel Selaocoe

Joy, warmth and irrepressible energy. Sirocco is a great storm of music from across the world, played with heart and virtuosity. From New York to Frankfurt, its infectious spirit has audiences up on their feet and singing along.

Expect the unexpected: original South African folk, old Western classics given new life and outrageous solos from across the ensemble. Classical strings dance to the beat of African drums and electric bass guitar. Sirocco has been a fruitful collaboration between Manchester Collective and Guest Director, Abel Selaocoe. A maverick on the cello and a long-time friend of the Collective, he's a star performer as an instrumentalist, singer, and composer. Join us and celebrate music's power to unify us all.
