At simply 20 years previous, Sheku Kanneh-Mason is taking the world of classical music by storm! The British cellist (who’s now also known as “Cello Bae”) has rapidly garnered worldwide reward and recognition after profitable the 2016 BBC Younger Musician competitors, releasing his first album, Inspiration, and, after all, acting at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s royal marriage ceremony in Could 2018. I received the prospect to talk with Sheku after his spectacular efficiency with the Havana Chamber Orchestra at Competition Napa Valley on July 13 — we talked about every part from the royal marriage ceremony to his newest album, and I can truthfully say he is one of many sweetest, most down-to-earth individuals I’ve ever met.
Even if Sheku has turn into fairly a celeb in his personal proper, he is clearly unfazed by the celebrity and simply really enjoys doing what he does, which is taking part in the cello. “Classical music and the cello have all the time been part of my life,” Sheku stated. “It is all the time been my aim to share it with as many individuals as I can.” After talking with him, I completely perceive why Meghan and Harry chosen him to carry out at their marriage ceremony. Perhaps he can carry out at mine subsequent? See what else Sheku needed to say forward!
