The performance will last one hour and will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience. No-one has done more than the prize-winning pianist Rebeca Omordia to promote African classical music . With her mixed heritage from Nigeria and Romania she is ideally qualified to bridge the gap between Western classical music and traditional African music. In 2019 she curated the widely acclaimed first African Concert Series, since when it has now become an essential part of the London musical calendar. The 2022 AFRICAN CONCERT SERIES kicks off on 25 January 2022, 6.30pm at the October Gallery, London based on music from Omordia’s new CD African Pianism on the SOMM label.
