Tunde Jegede: New Worlds Tour - Visions of a Traveller

A concert that follows the journey of two legendary travellers; DH Lawrence in Mexico and Ibn Battuta in Medieval Africa.

Featuring multimedia visuals, the concert is a journey through time from the Pre-Columbian music of South America to the medieval Malian Royal Court music of the griots and the kora.

Tunde Jegede and Rafael Guel are two of the most established artists in their distinct traditions. Together they combine to find a new, common musical language of transcendence.

Tunde Jegede is a world-renowned composer, renaissance man, kora player and multi-instrumentalist who has brought his particular concept of African Classical Music to a wide international audience.

Rafael Guel is a celebrated Mexican artist and multi-instrumentalist who plays an array of traditional flutes, vihuela (baroque guitar) and percussion. His music carries the essence of the Pre-Columbian musical heartbeat.

WHY? ’A stunning exponent of the Kora’ The Independent

Fran & Flora

Described as ‘London’s best kept secret’ by Max Reinhardt (BBC Radio 3 Late Junction) and ‘brave & classy’ by Robin Denselow (The Guardian), Fran & Flora are quickly becoming one of the capital's most sought after live acts.

They are an eastern-European folk music inspired violin and cello duo with a distinctive intimate and improvisatory performance style. They were selected by BBC Music Introducing to perform at Latitude Festival, which was broadcast live across 2018.

The pair have collaborated and toured with established artists such as Sam Lee and Talvin Singh OBE for several years, where they developed a deep friendship, and from which their duo project began.

Their growing reputation has accelerated since the recent release of their debut album unfurl (Feb 2019) which was produced by Sam Beste from Hejira. Unfurl has gained critical acclaim and attention from national radio, magazines, newspapers and online publications.

They have appeared live in session on BBC4’s Woman's Hour, Cerys Matthews’ 6 Music Show and Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM. Recent performances include Kings Place, Cafe Oto, Eastbourne Folk Club, Klezmer In The Park, Shambala Festival, Shtetl Neukeulln (Berlin) and the EFG London Jazz Festival.
