TUNDE JEGEDE

Tunde is an internationally renowned kora player, cellist and composer who bridges African and European musical traditions. Tunde's soul-stirring music blends the ebb and flow of traditional kora-playing with his own exciting contemporary compositions. (For those unfamiliar, the kora is a 21- string mandinka harp which, when played in the traditional style, also bears a close resemblance to flamenco and to delta blues guitar techniques). The show is at 8pm at Newcastle Arts Centre (Black Swan downstairs performance bar), Westgate Road NE1 1SG - opposite the Old Assembly Rooms. Tickets are £8 - and £7 for under 18s. There are also two workshops that Tunde will conduct - see below. Tickets for concert and workshops available from The Jazz Cafe 0191 222 9882 - or call in there - 25 Pink Lane. Or order online - http://www.newcastle-arts-centre.co.uk/product/thetunde- jegede-testimony-tour/ In this unique concert, part of his "Testimony" UK tour, the audience will taken on a journey to the heart of the griot culture of Mali, 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 – a cultural expression that transcends boundaries. Tunde Jegede grew up in London where his Nigerian father was artist in residence at the Keskidee Centre, Britain’s first Black Arts Centre, and where Tunde encountered a range of black artists and activists including Bob Marley, Linton Kwesi Johnson and Angela Davis. In the Gambia he studied the kora and the ancient Griot tradition of West Africa; in London he studied the cello and western composition. As a composer he has worked with major classical orchestras but also for film, theatre, dance, opera and music theatre productions. He has also worked in the jazz field with former members of the Jazz Warriors and formed his own jazz ensemble, the Jazz Griots. There will be a support set of songs from local rising star VICTOR YUGIRE Tunde Jegede grew up in London where his Nigerian father was artist in residence at the Keskidee Centre, Britain’s first Black Arts Centre, and where Tunde encountered a range of black artists and activists including Bob Marley, Linton Kwesi Johnson and Angela Davis.
