About The Performance
Lagos-raised electric and acoustic bassist, composer, and bandleader Michael Olatuja has performed and recorded with Diana Ross, Spike Lee, Shakira, Rod Stewart, Stevie Wonder, and many more. He’s racked up a starry resume playing bass in Broadway musicals such as Frozen, Motown: The Musical, The Color Purple, and Moulin Rouge, and collaborated on original movie scores, including Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Tick, Tick … Boom! in 2021. For this special concert in the heart of Times Square, Olatuja and a full band perform music from his recently released album Lagos Pepper Soup in an evening of high-energy Afrobeat, jazz, and funk.
