Gambian kora virtuoso Malang Jobarteh and acclaimed pianist Chelsea Randall will join forces for an exciting collaboration exploring intersections between traditional West African music and 20th and 21st century African and Western classical piano repertoire. The program will juxtapose traditional and new works for kora with piano pieces by György Ligeti, Nkeiru Okoye, Philip Glass, Joshua Uzoigwe and Fred Onovwerosuoke, and will feature the world premiere of a new composition for kora and piano written by Jobarteh and Randall. Esteemed kora player Salieu Suso will give opening remarks. A festive reception will follow the concert. (This event was rescheduled from March 23, 2023).
