‘An African Experience of Handel’s Messiah’

 

African Messiah is a new celebratory work by the composer Tunde Jegede, based on the themes and melodies of Handel’s Messiah but seen through an African musical worldview. African Messiah is a piece that draws on African and European musical traditions. It follows the story of the messiah in parallel to the story of African people bringing together African music with baroque and opera in a unique way. Bringing together traditions, such as that of the Kora (African Harp) and the Riti (African Violin) together with the visual narrative, makes the work a more multi-faith experience, in keeping with our times, without losing the essence of the original ideology.
