Singing Cultures Journey 

The Composers

Phase 1 of Singing Cultures focussed on the music and life of Fela Sowande who is regarded as a principle figure in the development of Nigerian Classical Music. To establish Sowande’s legacy reference was also made to other Nigerian composers regarded as the third generation of Nigerian composers such as Akin Euba; Joy Lo-Bamijoko: Ayo Bankole and Joshua Uzoigwe. It is hoped the cultural and creative outputs of these composers will feature more prominently in future stages of Singing Cultures.
