Ogunlano is a Nigerian - American musical duo consisting of husband and wife, master percussionist Odun Ogunlano & powerhouse vocalist London Ogunlano. The duo sings in English and Yoruba - the traditional tonal language of the Nigerian people, which has the largest number of native speakers.
In the Yoruba language, Ogunlano translates as 'Ogun clears the path'.
Much of Ogunlano's mission is to preserve African culture and traditions that inspire future generations of performing artists within the fields of African visual, recording and performing arts.
Coining the term ‘Orisa Beat’ to describe their sound, their musical journey begins with their long awaited debut single release, ‘Esu Is Coming’. The record is a collaboration of fusing traditional African drumming and singing with elements of jazz, rhythm & blues and afro-beat.
‘Orisa beat is music for your spirit’, says Odun Ogunlano.
The Esu Is Coming EP will be released independently on Ogbe Records, and will be digitally available worldwide summer 2019.
