OGUNLANO is an independent, Nigerian-American musical duo, consisting of husband and wife, Master drummer/percussionist Oba Atayese Odun Ogunlano and powerhouse vocalist, London Ogunlano. The duo sings primarily in Yoruba – the traditional tonal language of the Nigerian people, which has the largest number of native speakers.

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, OGUNLANO is preparing to share their talents with the world, beginning with a 3-country West-African tour to Nigeria, Kenya and Benin in January 2019.

OGUNLANO’s music can best be described as a fusion of traditional African drumming with elements of jazz, rhythm and blues and afrobeat.
