Description

Join us at AfroJam Presents Eli Fola.
Enjoy the Electronic infused Afro Beat sounds of Eli Fola; one of NYC's hottest multimedia artist, vocalist, saxophonist, DJ and music producers.

Born through a vision he had when he was seven years old of him playing the saxophone, Nigerian Eli Fola is doing things differently within the techno realms. He’s a DJ, Music Producer and saxophonist, first and foremost, and dabbles in different musical instruments like the local African drums, congas and the piano, which he learnt to play as he grew up. In his infectious harmonies he wonderfully amalgamates jazz and electronics to create a truly unique, atmospheric soundtrack – the ultimate chill out and relax artist.

Fola’s techno afrique sound and debut EP called “The Platform” is a whirlwind aural experience for you to feast on. In his songs you can expect to hear an abundance of his smooth sax, and add to that some incredible experimental, jazz, afrobeat, electronic and deep house. He calls it “Tech Afrique”, the same name of his newly launched label, which is a platform for releasing his projects.

Accompanying “Apocalypse” is his amazingly shot grey scale video. It shows him walking through places like the NTU Dolan Studio in a reflective mood and searching for the light. He tells Wonderland, “sometimes we are all looking for answers and clarity to issues pertaining to life we have no answers to”, and this nicely mirrors the disposition of the beautifully captured visuals. Working in a calm environment in his studio he refuses to stress about the process and always keeps things simple with his music. Wonderland spoke to him about his Techno Afrique label, his “Live from the Underground” series and how he takes control of his creative vision.
