|Remembering Geoffrey Oryema
On Friday of last week we received the sad news of the death of Geoffrey Oryema. Geoffrey had a long association with Real World and WOMAD and performed alongside Peter many times throughout the years.
“I was very upset to learn of Geoffrey Oryema’s death.
Geoffrey was one of the original artists on our label and one of the most loved.
It feels as if we have lost one of our original family members and although Geoffrey went his own way in recent years we always felt he was a Real World artist.
A big man has gone and left a big hole but he leaves behind a lot of warmth and many beautiful and emotional songs.” - Peter Gabriel
