Watch Africa Express' performance of Terry Riley's In C Mali from the Tate Modern in full

28 November 2014, 16:09 | Written by Laurence Day

The Tate Modern and Africa Express joined forces earlier this month to present Terry Riley's In C Mali in an innovative fashion. It's a forty-ish minute version of seminal minamalist work Terry Riley's In C to celebrate its fiftieth birthday.

The video has been crafted using the same technology as was used to make Bob Dylan's "Like A Rolling Stone" video from last year.

The Africa Express x Tate Modern clip follows the musicians, but as you watch, you can create your "own journey through the film, watching the performance, exploring art in Tate's galleries, and go on the road to Bamako, Mali, with Africa Express."

The ensemble also features Damon Albarn, Nick Zinner and Mouse On Mars' Andi Toma.
