Nomad (Hetra Music) 2007 - Available October 2007
Nomad is Tunde's first solo album in 10 years. Featuring an array of special guests including Kasse Mady, Cleveland Watkiss, Oumou Sangare, HKB FiNN, Mpho Skeef, Misty Oldland and Dellfox, Nomad effortlessly blends African Classical Music with Dance, Jazz, Reggae and Pop. It's his most ambitious work to date brimming with a cinematic aesthetic but yet, grounded in modern music making. A musical epic both in spirit and sonics, Nomad will propel you into a world unlike any other.
The Nomad project began in early 2003 and took a tremendous 3 years to complete. With featured guest artists from the UK, US and Africa, the recording project took second place to Tunde's many performance, education and production duties. Recorded at Air Lyndhurst Studios and Gateway Studios in Kingston, Nomad is a testament to Tunde's skill both as a songwriter and a producer.
Nomad is a breath-taking musical journey into the uncharted realms of contemporary African music. In recent years there have been many attempts at encapsulating this sound but Tunde manages to wield his knowledge of the inner workings of music almost effortlessly. Sounds of the African Diaspora synergised with Western Classical compositions, held together by his unique African classical sound, results in a refreshing treatment and truly invigorating sonic experience.
