Afro Celts


Actually called the Afro Celt Sound System*, this band was formed by producer Simon Emmerson with a mission to combine Celtic and African music with modern technology. For the "Afro" part, Emmerson enlisted N'Faly Kouyate and Moussa Sissokho; for the "Celt" part, there are James McNally and Iarla Ó Lionáird; and for "Sound System" there is Martin Russell. With the addition of Johnny Kalsi, they could easily add an "Indo" to the name. Personnel has varied considerably from release to release. Read more on Last.fm

They frequently use guest contributors, often on vocals, including Peter Gabriel, Robert Plant and Sinead O'Connor. Their first recording project was instrumentals and background vocals on Gabriel's hit "In Your Eyes." * Usage of the long form of the name and the short form has varied. In 2003, Seed was released under the name Afrocelts, but the previous three albums, and the subsequent 2004 remix collection Pod and their 2005 release Anatomic were all labelled as Afro Celt Sound System. They have never been called Afro Celts (with a space), so this particular tag is plain wrong. Read more on Last.fm.
