In the words of Nigerian Brothers’ genial bandleader Babá Ken Okulolo, “In Nigeria, music is created to help people rise above the pain and suffering of daily life, to transcend all evils with the joy of music.” Come and rise above your daily cares with an evening of uplifting music guaranteed to leave no bodies motionless!

Babá Ken and his group (Pope Flyne, Soji Odukogbe, Lemuel Barrow) , featuring core musicians from local favorites Kotoja and the West African Highlife Band, reach deep into their musical heritage to create music that is as satisfying to the soul as it is to the ears. With guitar, shekere, conga, and talking drum, the Nigerian Brothers bring West African folk melodies, “palmwine” tunes, and highlife songs to life. Beautiful vocal harmonies, powerful guitar stylings, and superb percussion help this group of top contemporary musicians lift hearts and bodies as they recreate the sweet, lilting sounds of their earliest village memories, offering to all the universal healing magic of African music.
