Percussionist Lekan Babalola has long since had a connection with Birmingham but originally learnt his craft in the Yoruba-Christian church in Nigeria owned by his father, Olayiwola Babalola. Since then this Grammy awarded musician’s career has lead him to perform with the likes of Branford Marsalis, the African Jazz All Stars, Roy Ayers, Tony Allen, Master Drummers of Africa and Jean Toussaint.

A treat for the foyers sessions and one to get up and dance to!
