A group of leading musicians comes together for the final event of the day. World renowned double bassist Leon Bosch presents music by two fellow South Africans, one of whom - Allan Stephenson - died last year at the age of 71. The Nigerian Odyssey takes in a wealth of music from that country, while African piano music makes up the closing section of this remarkable exploration.
