African Classical Music Ensemble

The African Classical Music Ensemble was set up by Tunde to celebrate the distinct acoustic classical musical traditions of Africa, and the sound of the ensemble embodies the last of the old code of griots. Rooted in the Griot tradition under the late Master of the Kora, Amadu Bansang Jobarteh, the ensemble has already worked and recorded with some of the finest and most     celebrated African artists around today, including, Kasse Mady Diabate, Oumou Sangare, Juldeh Camara and Toumani Diabate. They have also contributed to film and television soundtracks as well as collaborated with orchestras and ensembles including the London Sinfonietta, BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, Brodsky Quartet, the New World Renaissance Orchestra and the Pan African Orchestra.
