Tunde Jegede is a 21st century Renaissance man who bridges African and European musical traditions. He is an internationally renowned kora player, cellist and composer, whose soul-stirring music blends the ebb and flow of traditional kora-playing with his own dynamic contemporary compositions.

In this solo concert Tunde Jegede brings his rich musical legacies and sound worlds to life, which take you on a journey to the heart of Malian griot culture. With re-imagined cinematic imagery of ancient Africa, it is a meditative musical experience that touches on the essence of our being.

Tunde Jegede’s music is at once an intimate and personal reflection - a cultural expression that transcends boundaries.
