We are so glad Olatunji, Olubenga, Omotayo, Olanrewaju, Adetokunbo, Abdul, Majeed, Onabule (also known as Ola or Ola Onabule) made Syracuse a part of his tour. He brought his multi-octave mixture of soul, jazz and world-beat to the CNY Jazz Arts Foundation’s Cabaret Series yesterday. He will do smaller performances today at Lemoyne and Tuesday at SU.
Although the near-capacity crowd (SU Men Basketball played in the NCAA Tourney at the same time as the performance) was well entertained by his talents, we’d love to see Ola Onabule return for a larger venue concert, such as Clinton Square, in the future.
His next stop is Detroit.
These days a party’s just not a party until Second Line Syracuse meanders on through. They did just that during the Festival of the Fantastical Follicle last Friday. When they show up it’s always Mardi Gras or Carnival!
