The 2021 African Concert Series announced!

Following the success of the first ever African Concert Series in 2019 and the “Music for Lockdown” series in 2020, Artistic Director, Rebeca Omordia is delighted to announce a stunning new series for 2021. The first part of this will take place in January and February 2021 at the Africa Centre in London SE1, with a follow up series following straight after at The October Gallery in WC1N.

The performances will be live streamed on The African Concert Series social media channels from the concert hall with a socially-distanced audience or no audience at all. Stay tuned as we will post updates regularly.

The 2021 African Concert Series is possible through the generosity of the Arts Council England National Lottery Project Grants. The 2021 season will also include an educational programme in London schools.

The Series partners include The Africa Centre London, Fourchiefs Media and
Colourful Radio that will feature interviews with the artists on their radio channel.
