Testimony is a solo concert by Tunde Jegede that traces the musical journey from Bach and the Baroque to medieval Mali, to his own contemporary compositions. It follows the legacy of two worlds and two distinct classical traditions, that of Bach and the monumental solo cello suites with the Royal Court tradition of the kora. Jegede is an artist invariably steeped in both of these worlds.
It is a unique collaboration with the visual artist, Sunara Begum whose evocative cinematic imagery re-imagines these distinct traditions. Testimony is at once an intimate and personal reflection and also a cultural expression that transcends boundaries. It is a meditative journey that touches on the essence of our being, through sound and image.
