Tunday Akintan

Looking for a rare Yoruful groove? Look no further than the Nigerian-British saxophonist, pianist and vocalist who pioneered Yorubeat.

Tunday Akintan returns to Southbank Centre with his intoxicating blend of soul, funk and Yoruful rhythms, where the music of Fela Kuti and James Brown meet.

Put your dancing shoes on for an adrenaline-charged live experience.
