TODAY from 11AM to 12PM GIOCON

TODAY from 11AM to 12PM GIOCONDA RADIO PICKS presents: BABATUNDE OLATUNJI. “Trying to illustrate the importance of dance in the YORUBA culture will be almost like trying to illustrate the importance of food in human existence,” explains the Nigerian dancer and drummer Adebole Olowe. In the 1950s, the leading modern Yoruba musician was BABATUNDE OLATUNJI. Olatunji was born in a Nigerian village in 1927, but like Puente and Santamaría, he spent the 1950s in New York. Unlike those two, he wasn’t there to make it big in the music industry, but to study public administration. While in New York, he started a percussion ensemble to help fund these studies. Somewhere along the way, Olatunji ended up performing with the Radio City Music Hall orchestra, which led to an album deal with Columbia records. Olatuji’s Columbia records introduced not just America, but the world in general, to Yoruba music for the first time. His first LP, Drums of Passion, even spawned a multi-million-selling hit single! The group at this time consisted of three male drummers and eleven female singers and dancers, though the Drums of Passion ensemble would swell to a drum orchestra featuring more than 20 percussionists. Olatuji worked with many of the greats, from Cannonball Adderley to Stevie Wonder, and – more than a decade before Fela – he made a name for himself as an impassioned social justice activist. #babatundeolatunji #giocondaradiopicks #giocondaradio #drumming #drummer #percussion #yorubamusic #nigeria #music
