Acclaimed Composer/Singer Juwon Ogungbe launches his debut Album “Life Force Music” with an exciting evening of live music, ceremony and discussion.

Juwon’s band – comprising some of the UK’s finest young African and Caribbean musicians – with guests Rowland Sutherland (flute extraordinaire x-Jazz Warriors) & South African soprano Joyce Moholoagae, will play album highlights; a distinguished Panel will explore Juwon’s musical vocabulary and influences– partly stemming from long association with the Centre encountering musicians from throughout Africa, and formal Blessings will be offered.

 Panellists are Nana Ocran – freelance writer for Time Out who edited the Lagos edition previously; Best selling biographer of Michael Jackson & leading foreign corespondent Hans Peter Kuenzler & Jazz creator, poet and broadcaster Jumoke Fashola; Goddess empowerer Anna Zuman and Gwen White Arts and Culture Officer of the Royal Commonwealth Society lead the libations.
