London-born, Lagos, Nigeria-raised, New York-based composer, bandleader, and bassist Michael Olatuja blends the sounds of these three cities into what he describes as a “cinematic Afrobeat.” One of the most inventive and in-demand bassists on the scene today, Olatuja has worked and recorded with the likes of Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, Shakira, and MASS MoCA friend Angelique Kidjo, among others. He’s here with a full band, for a high-energy evening of hard-hitting afrobeat, jazz, and funk.
The full Lagos Pepper Soup band includes Michael Olatuja (bass/composer), Stephanie Alvarenga (voice), Melonie Daniels Walker (voice), Etienne Stadwijk (piano), and Jonathan Barber (drums).
