Funmi Olawumi

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).

Expect hypnotic dance rhythms that Olawumi calls “faaji rhythms” – “faaji” meaning “goodtime” in Yoruba. She is backed by a ten-piece band featuring the 4 Souls – vocalists and dancers that bring high energy dance routines to the show.
