It’s with great pleasure that we reveal our interactive video of Africa Express Presents… In C Mali, in conjunction with Tate Modern and the Space. Filmed in the Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall earlier this month, the video captures an exclusive live performance of Andre de Ridder and musicians such as Damon Albarn, Diabel Cissokho and Jeff Wootton putting an Africa Express twist on Terry Riley’s minimalist classic. Intermingled with shots of contemporary art on display at the Tate, the video brings minimalism, art and music into communion.
