Nigerian singer Funmi Olawumi, the leader and founder of the Yoruba Women Choir, performs an intimate show with her band as she premiers songs from her soon to be released CD Yoruba Soul, which takes off from the success of her current CD Funmi Ti De (Joyful Noise Records). The new recording Yoruba Soul brings together all the glories elements of Nigerian rhythms of afrobeat, hi-life, juju and fuji into one infectious naija rhythm.
