Temidayo Balogun is a pan-African multi-instrumentalist, composer, and educator from Osun, Nigeria. He specializes in teaching contemporary and jazz piano, as well as saxophone, clarinet, and flute.
While growing up, Temidayo had the chance to listen to a lot of west-African music with his late father, who was a music aficionado, specifically, a lover of Yoruba traditional music. At the age of 6, Temidayo started his musical journey by learning different African musical instruments like talking drum, and agbamole.
Temidayo has had the privilege of working on different projects by musical artists and bands across different genres of music as an instrumentalist, a music director, and producer, like Yinka Davies, Taye Mayegha, Tosin Aribisala, The Lagos Jazz Series Quintet, Generayshun, The Native Brains, Ope and the Stereo Choir, Jazz in My Room, and Makanda Project (based in Boston).
Temidayo formed a new band called AKÉDE in 2021 and is set to release a studio record in the summer of 2023. In 2020, Temidayo released two self-produced singles on digital platforms, Adura Owuro and Abiamo.
As an educator, Temidayo has had the opportunity to teach talented and diverse students from ages 4 to 89. His aim has always been to support students in finding their voices across different genres of music and helping them become more confident, creative, unique, and comfortable with any style of music they aspire to play.
