Description

    Following a record year for Sheku, and amazing family promo during lockdown, the 7 exceptionally talented Kanneh-Mason children perform together on an album for the first time.

    Decca Classics announces the release of Carnival, a very special collaboration between Academy Award-winning actor Olivia Colman (Queen Elizabeth II in the Netflix series The Crown), children’s author Michael Morpurgo and the seven “extraordinarily talented” (Classic FM) Kanneh-Mason siblings (aged between 11 and 24) – Isata, Braimah, Sheku, Konya, Jeneba, Aminata and Mariatu. The brand-new Kanneh-Mason album, their first as a family, centres around Saint-Saëns's Carnival of the Animals.
