Decca Classics: Sheku Kanneh-Mason: Myfanwy (Arr. for Solo Cello) 03:40 from the forthcoming album "Song" out 9 September


Song, the new album from cellist Sheku-Kanneh Mason, features music from across the entire spectrum
of classical, folk, jazz and pop – all personally curated by Sheku. The eclectic mix of styles are tied together
by one thing – the unique singing voice of Sheku’s cello.


Sheku Kanneh-Mason became a household name in 2018 after performing at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at Windsor Castle. His performance was greeted with universal excitement and was seen
by nearly two billion people globally.


Sheku initially garnered renown as the winner of the 2016 BBC Young Musician Competition, the first black musician to take the title. He has released two chart-topping albums on the Decca Classics label, Inspiration (2018) and Elgar (2020). The latter reached #8 in the overall UK official album chart, making Sheku the first cellist in history to reach the UK top 10.
