Tunde Jegede

Details

This performance is for a seated audience.

Tunde Jegede is a composer, kora player and 21st century Renaissance man who returns to UK with his new supergroup, direct from Nigeria, the Art Ensemble of Lagos. They bring their contemporary songs and evocative Malian vocals that speak directly to the heart and are guaranteed to uplift the spirit. Their joyful set of celebratory songs and soulful ballads fuse traditional African, jazz, afro-beat and world music to create an authentic expression of contemporary Africa.

“Soul-stirring music that could rouse slumbering spirits from the nether world”
- Vanguard, Nigeria

‘A renaissance man of the harp-lute’ The Times

“Tunde brings the majesty of this ancient instrument to life before our very eyes”
- Sean Rafferty, In Tune, BBC Radio 3

‘Tunde’s virtuosity glows’ The Guardian

‘Tunde Jegede, a griot of our times’ The Observer
