No Woman No Cry: Sheku Kanneh-Mason Breathtaking Performance In Front Of A Bob Marley Mural

In his debut album, ‘Inspiration’, Sheku Kanneh-Mason, one of the brightest new stars in classical music pays tribute to the mentors and heroes who have spurred him on on his extraordinary journey from Jacqueline du Pré to Bob Marley. Sheku won the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition playing Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No.1. The work forms the centerpiece of the album which also includes new arrangements of Bob Marley’s ‘No Woman No Cry’ and the ever-popular Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’. Sheku hopes this recording will provide inspiration in turn for a young, diverse audience. ‘I’ve had amazing opportunities to learn music at the highest level, and I would love to see many more children have the opportunity to play an instrument, no matter how far they take it in future,’ he says.
