Byron Wallen's 4 Corners presents 'Anthem For Woolwich'
This suite of pieces is a symbol of the unity and vitality of Woolwich. An anthemic testament to a part of London often vilified and dismissed.
The project was conceived in 2013, sitting in the central square in Woolwich surrounded by such a diverse array of people. This unique composition will bring music from different worlds together which will in turn have the potential to inspire and bring people together.
Born of Belizean parents and raised in London, Byron's international adventures into straight ahead and world jazz have taken his name and music afar, not only with four acclaimed albums (winning awards and nominations from the BBC and the MOBO Awards), but playing alongside legendary musicians such as Andrew Hill, Sam Rivers,Mulatu Astatke, George Benson, Red Snapper,Jack Dejohnette and King Sunny Ade.
Widely recognized as a seminal figure in jazz, constantly travelling the world teaching, performing and composing. Byron is an acclaimed writer and producer whose original music has been commissioned by the Science Museum; PRS, BBC, Jerwood Foundation, Southbank Centre, National Theatre, Arts Council, FIFA, Sage Gateshead, Birmingham Arts, Plymouth University. He has also composed soundscapes for Universal Pictures, Warner Bros and Game of Thrones.
