About albumTunde's debut album was released on the Triciom label in 1995. During a hectic year co-producing his first TV documentary, Tunde also set up Triciom Records with Paul Gladstone Reid. The first release was the seminal classical album: Lamentation.
Embraced almost immediately by the classical world as a fantastic modern exponent of this idiom,Lamentation was produced by Paul Balmer. Despite its limited release, the album has found its way to a worldwide audience with little or no marketing from the small London-based label.
Lamentation was voted album of the year by Wire magazine, chosen by opera diva Maria Ewing as one of her Desert Island discs and selected by New York DJ John Shaefer to be used for the commemorative anniversary of 9/11 on U.S. public broadcasting radio.
Lamentation has been used in many national ceremonial occasions from the Far East to South Africa, the U.S. and Canada. In 2002, the entire album was played continuously on U.S. radio as the unofficial recording to commemorate the September 11th disaster in New York. A much sought after recording, Triciom has not been able to keep up with demand for Lamentation and so it remains a very rare album in more ways than one.

About albumIn 1996, Triciom records released the follow up to Lamentation, the highly influential Malian Royal Cour tMusic. This is the definitive African Classical Music album with the added bonus of also representing a synergy between Western and African classicism. Many critics have found it difficult to categorise this record which has resulted in the development of two main schools of thought surrounding this work. The first sees this album as a world music record while the second school of thought sees this as a contemporary classical album.
This album was first released in the UK in 1996 and was hailed by many critics as a masterpiece within the idiom of African Classical Music.
To celebrate its 10th year anniversary, Triciom records has licensed Malian Royal Court Music with two new pieces and re-entitled it: Still Moment. Still moment is a beautifully constructed New Age recording and should add a new argument to the one already in process around this record.

About albumHow Many Prophets (with The Nomadic Mystics) featuring an array of special guests including Kasse Mady, Cleveland Watkiss, HKB FiNN and other effortlessly blends African Classical Music with Dance, Jazz, Reggae and Pop. It's his most ambitious work to date brimming with a cinematic aesthetic but yet, grounded in modern music making. A musical epic both in spirit and sonics, album will propel you into a world unlike any other.
The Nomadic Mystics project began in early 2003 and took a tremendous 3 years to complete. With featured guest artists from the UK, US and Africa, the recording project took second place to Tunde's many performance, education and production duties. Recorded at Air Lyndhurst Studios and Gateway Studios in Kingston, Nomad is a testament to Tunde's skill both as a songwriter and a producer.
How Many Prophets is a breath-taking musical journey into the uncharted realms of contemporary African music. In recent years there have been many attempts at encapsulating this sound but Tunde manages to wield his knowledge of the inner workings of music almost effortlessly. Sounds of the African Diaspora synergised with Western Classical compositions, held together by his unique African classical sound, results in a refreshing treatment and truly invigorating sonic experience.
Тунде Джегеде (род. 1972) – известный исполнитель на коре, мультиинструменталист и композитор, совмещающий в своем творчестве современную классику, африканский фолк и популярную музыку. Он родился в Лондоне в семье нигерийского музыканта Эммануэля Тайво Джегеде и с шести лет начал осваивать азы музыки. А уже в 10 лет Тунде отправился в Гамбию для изучения древних традиций гриотов Западной Африки, где обучался искусству игры на коре (кора – западноафриканская 21-струнная арфа, которую по праву считают королевой африканских инструментов). Кроме коры Тунде Джегеде играет на виолончели, фортепиано и различных видах перкуссионных инструментов. Тунде сотрудничал с рядом известных музыкантов, среди которых стоит упомянуть Талвина Сингха, Трилока Гурту, Яна Гарбарека, Brodsky Quartet, The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London Sinfonietta. Его сестра Сона Джобарте тоже является популярной исполнительницей на коре и певицей.
About artist / Об исполнителеTunde Jegede is a composer and multi-instrumentalist who is uniquely placed between the worlds of Contemporary Classical, African and Pop music. He is a prolific Producer/Song writer and has worked across several genres both as a performer (Cello, Kora, Piano and Percussion) and producer.
Tunde was born in 1972 and is a product of a cosmopolitan city such as London. In North London's infamous Keskidee Centre, Britain's first Black Arts Centre, his appreciation of African Diasporic culture was initiated and nurtured. From an early age he was exposed to resident and visiting artists who worked in a multi-disciplinary mode such as: Bob Marley, Walter Rodney, Edward Braithwaite, Angela Davis and Linton Kwesi Johnson. It was here, his path as an artist began.
Tunde's apprenticeship in African music began in 1978 and was further developed in 1982 when he first went to the Gambia to study the ancient Griot tradition of West Africa, with Amadu Bansang Jobarteh, Master of the Kora (West African Harp-Lute). The Jobarteh family are one of five principle musician families within this unique hereditary Oral tradition, which dates back to at least the 13th century.
His appreciation of Western Classical music began with his grandfather's love of Bach and by observing his work as a church Organist. Tunde also studied Cello from the age of 8 and over the years was taught by esteemed luminaries from the Classical world including: Alfia Bekova, Elma de Bruyne, Joan Dickson and Raphael Wallfisch at the Purcell School of music and later the Guildhall School of music.
In 1988 Tunde became fascinated with Jazz and worked and toured with ex-members of the Jazz Warriors founded by Courtney Pine & Cleveland Watkiss. He formed his own Jazz Ensemble, The Jazz Griots, with the sole purpose of exploring the connections between African and African Diasporic forms of music.
In 1991 he pioneered African Classical Music in the UK with the first ever national tour of the African Classical Music Ensemble, which nurtured his burgeoning composer credentials. In 1995 a BBC TV documentary, 'Africa I Remember' was done on Tunde's music and centred around his orchestral work. In this programme he performed new compositions alongside the London Sinfonietta, which was conducted by Markus Stenz.
With his now fully fledged composer credentials, he was appointed as innovations composer for the Eastern Orchestral Board, who facilitated his working with many of the major orchestras in the UK including: The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, The Philharmonia, Britten Sinfonia, Viva Sinfonia, The London Mozart Players and The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.
All these prestigious orchestras and ensembles were keen to play his original and highly evocative compositions. During this period, he was specially commissioned to write a Percussion Concerto for Evelyn Glennie and Double Orchestra, an Oratorio for the City of Milton Keynes and a string quartet for the Brodsky Quartet as a part of their 'Beethoven Op18' recording, which was released on the Vanguard label and is still being performed by them worldwide.
Over the years Tunde has kept his creative diversity intact by working closely with singers, vocalists, and spoken word artists from a wide range of traditions including: Opera, Pop, R'N'B, Reggae, Hip Hop, and Jazz. In 2002 he started ACM Productions with the primary goal of creating accessible quality productions across a small spectrum of genres, namely: Urban, Pop, Classical and Jazz.
