BABA ADESOSE WALLACE
Baba Adesose Wallace is a legend of African music. A master percussionist, artist, teacher, philanthropist and social commentator, his inspirations include some of Africa’s most luminary musicians and bands, some of whom he has played and toured with extensively – Hugh Masekela, Fela Kuti, Geraldo Pino, Sunny Ade, Miriam Makeba and many others.
Ade’s avid enthusiasm for the use of traditional African instruments gave birth to a distinctive sound – brewing an intricate blend of blues, jazz, afro funk and psychedelia – 100% unplugged, the sound churned out by this incredibly dynamic band utilises mostly traditional African instruments.
“Nigerian master drummer and former member of the Oro band busts out his funky Afrobeat rhythms whilst exploring some more traditional West African sounds. Wallace is a veteran of the UK’s world music scene, having played at the first WOMAD, and his staying power is a testament to just how good he is.” (Time Out,2012)
