From Lontano Records /
Homage is a long-awaited collaboration that marks a historic moment in chamber music in many important ways. It is an illuminating and rare curation of composers from Africa and the Diaspora, performed with a great deal of care and passion by Dr Samantha Ege and Boston’s Castle of our Skins. Over the past few years, Samantha and Castle of our Skins’ founders Ashleigh Gordon and composer Anthony R. Green have been notable champions of diversity and inclusion in classical music, exploring Black repertoire long neglected or forgotten by the musical establishment. |
