Details Book »


Traditional and contemporary Yoruba music combine in the soulful voice of Funmi Olawumi, the founder of the Yoruba Women Choir, who creates Faaji music from a refreshing mix of influences, from juju, highlife and afrobeat to fuji. Faaji is a Nigerian-Yoruba word for having a good time and Funmi Olawumi and her 12-piece band create hypnotic dance music that galvanizes and uplifts in a remarkable way.

Tonight she performs from her new cd “FUNMI TI DE” (JNR) and features the four part harmonies of the Naija Soul Sisters (Joy AIGBEKAN, Nike FAGBUARO, Esther MABADEJE and Kehinde TALABI), guitarist Lekan SHOBIYI, keyboardist Gbenga KOLADE, bassist Femi SOFELA, drummer Abiodun OJIKUTU, percussionist Wole AINA, alto saxophonist Israel IFEDAYO and talking drummers Saeed GBADAMOSI and Wale OGUNGBE.
