Tunday Akintan

This event has been rescheduled as we are currently closed due to the coronavirus crisis: all tickets are valid for the new date.

Serious grooving is in store at a performance of rare Yoruful music from the Yorubeat pioneer.

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, where the Nigerian-British saxophonist, pianist and vocalist is backed by his heavyweight band.

Akintan has shared the stage with the likes of the Foo Fighters, Jorja Smith, KT Tunstall, Dizzee Rascal and Linton Kwesi Johnson.
