Morrab Library is delighted to welcome Tunde Jegede to Penzance as part of his Testimony tour on Wednesday 2nd August 2017:
“Tunde Jegede is a 21st century renaissance man who bridges African and European musical traditions, and is on a whistle-stop world tour of 21 concerts in 21 cities. 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 unique solo concert listeners are taken on a journey to the heart of Malian griot culture bringing Tunde’s sound worlds and rich musical legacies to life. With re-imagined cinematic imagery of ancient Africa, it is a meditative musical experience that touches on the very essence of our being. Tuned Jegede’s music is at once an intimate and personal reflection – a cultural expression that transcends boundaries.”
