As part of the celebration of the International Day of Human Rights, the International Slavery Museum is honoured to host a performance by two time Grammy winning Nigerian percussion wizard Lekan Babalola as he brings his acclaimed LEKAN BABALOLA’s OGUN | OSUN project to Liverpool.

Lekan Babalola is well known for his innovative musical style, using his native Yoruba tongue infused with traditional music, Afrobeat and funky dance overtones. In addition to being a talented musician, Lekan has also undertaken education work as part of his artistic programme and has on-going relationships both in the UK, USA, Europe, Caribbean and Africa as a percussionist, art curator tutor, band leader / composer and producer.

This is a performance of Yoruba contemporary songs, from an art installation project OGUN | OSUN . The project celebrates both OGUN – the Yoruba icon of iron – and composer / activist John Coltrane.

Booking: Free drop-in event, no need to book.
