Dr. Shawn Okpebholo is a widely sought-after and award-winning composer, whose music can be characterized as diverse, dynamic, and genuine. In this TowerTalk he demonstrates how discovering the rich roots of his cultural heritage in Nigeria and Kenya, in addition to studying the Negro spiritual, have enabled him to musically connect with others in a way that is both deep and wide.
