Here's an advance look at a five minute clip from the new upcoming documentary Tales from the Bass Line about the Nigerian/Irish classical double bassist, teacher and broadcaster Chi-Chi Nwanoku.
A member of the British period instrument ensemble The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and a chamber player and soloist as well, Chi-Chi is world reknowned in the classical music world.
O.K. I have to make a confession. I'm rather biased here. I know Chi-Chi personally and not only is she a wonderfrul friend, but a brilliant artist with a genuinely vibrant and infectous personality which I think is pretty evident in this film clip. In fact, she told me last fall that there was documentary about her life and career in the works and after seeing this clip it makes me even more anxious to see it.
Hope you will be too:
