Wolfson College, Oxford

Join us for Yoruba Sonnets at Wolfson College with Grammy Award-winning Lekan Babalola.

The Yoruba Sonnets pair spoken word poetry and mime from Dr Olu Taiwo with live music from Lekan Babalola's Sacred Funk Quartet. The result is a unique performance of ancient Nigerian verse incorporating Afro-beat music and the contemporary sound of Western Funk.

Registration for this event is now closed. You can watch films of the performance and read blog posts about the event here.
