Kabantu are the current senior award winners of The Hattori Foundation awards scheme for exceptionally talented young chamber ensembles whose talent and achievements give promise of an international career.

Programme includes
Scotland - Good Call

A set of two tunes - one penned by Kabantu Edinburgh-born violinist Katie Foster and one traditional, fused with Kabantu's take on Scottish music, including bowed banjo woven with intricate rhythmic decoration.

South Africa - Ulidzele

Ulidzele is a traditional song brought to Kabantu by their South African cellist, Abel Selaocoe, who is from a township near Johannesburg called Sebokeng. Ulidzele uses a blend of African vocal harmonies preceded by vibrant chanting and percussion to tell the story of a funeral celebrating a life, rather than mourning it. This song will feature on Kabantu's debut album, released in February 2018.
