SOAS Concert Series - Afro-Brazilian Percussion Magic - Adriano Adewale Group Wed, 2011-03-23 15:00

Throw aside preconceived musical prejudices, abandon all attempts to catalogue: a rich chemistry of cultural influences is at work when Adriano Adewale and his group get together on stage.

Rooted in the musical traditions of Nigeria, Angola and Brazil and infused with contemporary European classical and jazz styles, percussionist and composer Adewale’s music is a global fusion of musical influences. With his outstanding international ensemble they create a colourful cocktail of infectiously funky rhythms and intimate soulful ballads: this is music to appeal directly to the senses.
