 Babatunde Lea's quartet features master percussionist Babatunde Lea on traponga, Richard Johnson on piano, Anthony Cox on bass and Solomon Parham on trumpet.

ImageBabatunde Lea’s vast experience of nearly forty years as a master percussionist, as well as the spiritual depth and resonance he brings to everything he does, has made him one of the most esteemed musicians of the past half century. The way that music connects with audiences and with the rhythms of our everyday lives is essential to his musical philosophy: "I draw a lot from African culture, and one of the main things I've come to understand is that music is functional; in African culture, music accompanies everything... from birth ceremonies to funerals." Since starting his career in the late 1960s, Babatunde Lea has worked with everyone from Pharoah Sanders to Van Morrison.
