Afro Trad is an exciting fusion of African and Irish rhythms and songs. Pulsating African drums and lilting Irish and African vocals are the main features of this must-see fusion. For bigger events, a unique mix of stunning African and Irish dance are the highlight of the performance. All performers are experienced in their fields and well known in the respective musical communities. The group comprises of Tim O’ Shea (Guitar, Vocals, Bodhrán), Paul Dolan (Yambú, Bodhrán, Backing Vocals), Samuel Kilwanuka (Lead Vocals, Percussion) and Martin Schaerer (Percussion, Djembe, Conga, Bongo, Hang, Chimes, Kabassa).
