Bookmark and Share

Acclaimed British-Nigerian multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter, and music producer Ola Onabul'e makes a special stop in Philadelphia to share selections from his new album, Point Less. He and his band visit with host J. Michael Harrison in the WRTI Performance Studio for an exclusive live video presentation on Veterans Day, Monday, November 11th at 4 PM.

Ola's songs about love, loss and the human condition have been performed all over the world with his quartet/quintet as well as appearances with much larger ensembles of big bands and symphonic orchestras.  These include several projects with the Grammy winning WDR Big Band of Cologne, the SWR Big Band of Stuttgart, the HR Big Band of Frankfurt, Danish Radio Big Band, and the Copenhagen and Babelsberg Film Orchestra and others. Ola states; "Hands-on, self-sufficiency has always been my mantra for survival in the music game.  I always felt like the creative parts of song writing, producing and recording were merely different stages of a single process".
