Ola Onabule: Point Less
Date(s) - 01/11/2022
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Theatre Royal Winchester
21-23 Jewry Street,
British-Nigerian singer/songwriter Ola Onabulé presents Point Less, his latest studio album, performing with a quartet.
The album is an activist’s call – at once a celebration of life and a cautionary take on the social forces that threaten it. Violence, immigration, xenophobia, betrayal, and dignity are themes considered on Point Less, rendered with a powerful and knowing generosity of spirit. Onabulé is rueful yet optimistic.
Onabulé has always been interested in crossing cultural and musical boundaries. With his feeling and virtuosity, his three-and-a-half octave deep baritone voice is the perfect instrument for breaking musical and cultural boundaries, his poignant storytelling, which has given life to previous studio works exploring his Nigerian roots, his Western upbringing, family life, and musical influences ranging from jazz to soul, world, and pop.
Ola has performed with some of Europe’s finest big bands including The WDR, The Danish Radio Big Band, Umo Helsinki Jazz Orchestra The SWR Big Band, The HR Big Band, Babelsberg Film Orchestra amongst many others. Onabulé has forged an international career via his relentless program of recordings and concerts and has appeared on the main stages of many of the most respected international jazz festivals including Montreal, Vancouver, Victoria, Istanbul, London, Edmonton, Washington DC, San Sebastien, Umbria, as well as concert halls and jazz clubs worldwide.
