Abstract:

Tunde Jegede, a black musician and composer, bridges two classical traditions. His instrument is the Kora, an African harp lute whose roots are in the court of 13th century Mali. First introduced to the Kora in Britain by a Senegalese musician, Tunde later studied in the Gambia where he found himself immersed in its rich oral tradition. In this film, we follow him to the villages of West Africa where he learns from local musicians. We also see him perform his compositions with the London Sinfonietta. What is remarkable about Tunde's music is the way it combines West African and classical European traditions, bringing together a love of both cultures. Combining African experiences with Western structures, spontaneous composition with written musical notation, his "The Cycle of Reckoning" reflects on the legacy of the African slave trade.
