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. This first concert features Rebeca Omordia herself together with Abdelkader Saadoun on percussion, with music by Ayo Bankole and Christian Onyeji from Nigeria, Kwabena Nketia from Ghana, David Earl from South Africa and Nabil Benabdeljalil from Morocco, which feature on the new CD which will be available at the Concert.

The series will run monthly with an audience, in line with the Government’s guidelines. All audience members must comply with our Covid precautions: we request that all customers wear face coverings whilst moving around the building and whilst sitting in your seats except for individuals who are exempt.
