Crossings: Malang Jobarteh, kora & Chelsea Randall, piano
Gambian kora virtuoso Malang Jobarteh and acclaimed pianist Chelsea Randall will join forces for an exciting collaboration exploring the intersections between African music and 20th and 21st century piano repertoire which draws inspiration from and incorporates elements of African rhythms and harmonies. The program will juxtapose traditional and new works for kora with piano pieces by György Ligeti, Nkeiru Okoye, Joshua Uzoigwe and Fred Onovwerosuoke, and will feature the world premiere of a new composition for kora and piano written by Jobarteh and Randall. A festive reception will follow the concert.
