St. Louis native Alicia Olatuja burst onto the national scene with her performance at President Obama’s second inauguration, but she has been honing her craft for many years, playing alongside giants like Chaka Khan, Christian McBride, and BeBe Winans. In fact, the 30-year-old Olatuja’s reputation has been growing since her arrival in New York in 2005. The New York Times praised her performance with her husband, bassist Michael Olatuja, in their African jazz band The Olatuja Project, lauding her “strong, lustrous tone and an amiably regal presence onstage.” Blending elements of classical, jazz, gospel, and pop, Olatuja’s unique and soulful musical style is refined and captivating.
