The Vine International Concert Series – Ibukun Tunde Olatunji – Actor Izumi Kimura – Piano
April 24 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
On the 24th April, the Vine International Concert Series presents Prince Ibukun Tunde Olatunji , a chief from the Ekiti estates in Nigeria. Having grown up in the United Kingdom, estranged from his family of origin; Tunde became an actor, writer and poet producing work for theatre, dance and orchestral performances. Upon being introduced to his tribal home and family, Tunde was inspired to create a series of epic poems celebrating the land of his origin and its extraordinary pantheon of gods and mythology. Tunde will perform selections from his writing accompanied by the exceptional Japanese concert pianist and improviser, Izumi Kimura. Recognised internationally as a brilliant improviser and composer, Izumi will also be presenting a number of her own compositions as well as her improvised responses to the writings of Tunde Olatunji.
All the performances in this series will begin at 8.00pm. Tickets will be available in advance from www.gr8events.ie or on the door. Costs are €20, €15 for students, young people (16 or under) accompanied by an adult enter free of charge.
