Carnival is collaboration between Academy Award-winning actor Olivia Colman, children’s author Michael Morpurgo, and the seven extraordinarily talented (Classic FM) Kanneh-Mason siblings – Isata, Braimah, Sheku, Konya, Jeneba, Aminata, and Mariatu. The release includes new poems written by Morpurgo to accompany Saint-Saëns’ beloved musical suite Carnival of the Animals. The poems are read by the author himself, joined by Colman, and guest musicians complete the ensemble for the suite. For the Kanneh-Masons, 2020 has presented one overriding positive: the opportunity for all members of the family to join together at home for the first time in over five years, performing together and sharing their extraordinary talents with the world via a series of livestreams, watched by millions around the world.
