Alina Bzhezhinska & Tony Kofi
FRIDAY 12 APRIL - 8:00 PM
Experience saxophone and harp in perfect harmony as renowned duo Tony Kofi (sax) and Alina Bzhezhinska (harp) join forces.
Tony Kofi is a British Jazz multi-instrumentalist born of Ghanaian parents. A gifted saxophonist and flautist, he regularly lends his skills to legendary group Cymande for their live performances. Alina Bzhezhinska is a jazz harpist, composer, band leader and a founder of the digital platform HipHarpCollective. A one-woman powerhouse, she is on a mission to bring the harp to the fore of contemporary sound.
Altera Vita is a heartfelt tribute to spiritual jazz master Pharoah Sanders. Pharoah’s music has been a part of Tony and Alina’s musical upbringing for as long as they can remember. Riding the wave of inspiration following Pharoah’s passing, Tony channelled his gratitude into the creation of Altera Vita (for Pharoah Sanders) (single). With Alina’s harmonious harp in counterpoint, a serene musical dialogue was born.
Altera Vita is a spontaneous response to a world in dire need for a reset. The album is designed to provide the listener with an opportunity to sit still and be aware. Combining West African and Eastern European influences, Tony and Alina become symbols of our shared human fabric. It is a powerful reminder that our commonalities vastly overshadow our differences.
Join us for an evening of music that personifies tranquillity, spirituality and peace.
