Ola Onabulé

Classic soul with a jazzy vibe from a deeply expressive vocalist producing a guaranteed electric atmosphere. Drawing on such influences as Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway and Curtis Mayfield, Onabule incorporates soul, blues and jazz into his message-driven lyrics. Combining the sophistication of modern jazz music with the power of his African roots, Ola delivers beautifully crafted songs shaped by grooves rooted in the soul and blues tradition alongside complex African melodic lines, Ola's song styling is unique - a thrilling artist with an incredible voice.

“A superb blend of raw rhythms and super-sophisticated, highly developed jazz-soul singing “ (The Herald).

He is joined by John Crawford (piano), Chris Nickolls (drums) and Phil Milford (bass).
