Lamentation expresses the sorrow of the African Diaspora, a journey of exile and the quest for a place of belonging. It is an evocation of loss in the experience of displacement and the search for a homeland. It is a lament for those lost in the middle passage and those caught in the consequences and repercussions of this epoch in history. Lamentation is one of Tunde Jegede’s most celebrated pieces having been performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the London Sinfonietta, The London Mozart Players in major concert halls around the world such as the Royal Albert Hall and Carnegie Hall.
