Imoinda – A Story of Love and Slavery

I’m delighted to announce that I will be playing keyboard in a production of Imoinda – A Story of Love and Slavery, an opera by American-Cuban composer and conductor Odaline de la Martinez. Imoinda is set in the 16th Century in the African Kingdom of Guinea, looking at slavery through the eyes of two lovers: Oko and Imoinda. Expect a lot of Cuban percussion!
