The African Concert Series: A celebration of the African continent through its music

Join us for a special musical celebration with Rebeca Omordia and Leon Bosch.

Nigerian-Romanian virtuoso pianist Rebeca Omordia is changing the face of classical music. In 2019 Rebeca founded the first African Concert Series in London. The series featured a collaboration with the South African internationally-acclaimed double bass virtuoso, Leon Bosch, creator of "The South African Double Bass" project.
In this session, Rebeca and Leon will discuss their distinct journeys, the influences on their work and its socio-cultural impacts, illustrated with musical examples.

Professor Marius Turda and Dr Graham van Wyk will host and engage in the conversation with opportunities for Q&A.
