Olatuja

Saturday 6 July

Olatuja reunites vocalist Alicia Olatuja and bassist Michael Olatuja in music. Michael, who grew up in both Lagos, Nigeria and London, is an inventive and sought-after bassist, having recorded with musicians including Terence Blanchard, Stevie Wonder and Angelique Kidjo.

 

His co-leader, Alicia, is “a singer with a strong and luscious tone and an amiable regal presence onstage.”

Her vocal excellence stunned a global audience of millions during the second inauguration ceremony for President Barack Obama in 2013 with a soaring featured solo during the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir’s rendition of The Battle Hymn of the Republic. Since this historic performance, the St. Louis native has performed extensively with Chris Botti and Billy Childs and shared the stage with Chaka Khan, Christian McBride and the HR-Big Band.
