Abel Selaocoe


The brilliant South African cellist Abel Selaocoe moves seamlessly across genres and styles. Together with his trio Chesaba he presents his own distinctive way with music from the African continent. Abel combines virtuosic performance with improvisation, singing and body percussion, his energised performances bringing together classical, jazz, and world music in a unique fusion.


Due to circumstances outside of our control Abel Selaocoe and his Trio Chesaba are unfortunately unable to attend their performance at the Tabernacle on Wednesday 24th August 2022 and will instead have to postpone their concert until Friday 4th November 2022.

All tickets purchased will be valid for the postponed date and we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this causes. Tickets will be avaliable again to purchase and be refunded from 1st September.

Whilst we’re sorry to miss Abela and Chesaba this festival week, we hope that you will be able to join us in November to offer them a warm welcome to Machynlleth and to continue our festival celebrations for this exciting performance.
