Performances For Lockdown: A Birthday Tribute To Paul Robeson by Tayo Aluko

IIn the wake of the Coronavirus pandemic, Entertainment South Wales is all too aware of the frustration and sadness caused while we remain in lockdown and isolation.

We felt during this period we would like to turn over our YouTube channel to local performers from the professional and amateur mediums, not only to encourage them but also bring a smile to the faces of people who enjoy watching them perform.

All we ask is if you watch the video and enjoy it, share it on your social media channels and support the artist in any way you can by encouraging or even buying a ticket to their next show!

On the 122nd anniversary of Paul Robeson’s birth, writer, actor and singer Tayo Aluko performs a special tribute to the legendary singer, actor and political activist Paul Robeson.

Robeson’s bond with the South Wales miners and recognising their plight in the early 20th century is still remembered as sell-out performances by Tayo Aluko‚Äôs one-man show prove, its therefore an honour for Entertainment South Wales to present this definitive Paul Robeson tribute on the anniversary of his birth.
