Who does not love stories? Some love telling their own while some delight in just hearing others tell theirs. Growing up, I was shaped by the rich folk lore traditions of my Jukun people in central Nigeria. Drawing from that influence, in Light, I tell contemporary stories, for contemporary ears, using contemporary musical instruments.
So instead of a world teeming with wily hares, belligerent leopards and resilient tortoises, you will meet everyday people and communities trying to navigate the maze of modern life. I tell parts of my story but also those of other people. One time you are up dancing while in the next you may not be sure whether to continue dancing or to simply sit down and ponder. I invite you to come along with me on this acoustic journey.
