Graduating Student Recital • JAHE: THE EKKLESIA ARISING • Olayemi Ogundola, alto saxophone

Tuesday • December 20, 2022   |   11:00 am

Free – $20.00

The music of Olayemi Ogundola takes you into a deep adventure of excitement, lamentation, and meditation. The quartet’s sonic adventurous effort combines jazz, liturgical and Yoruba music in the same space. The danceable poly-metric time signature leaves the audience in a state of curiosity, yet the captivating melody of the music excites the listener. I crafted my identity from JAHE; Jeduthun, Asaph and Heman Expressions. Historically, these are Sons of Korah, they are Levitical priests appointed as musicians and the king’s seer back in the day. Such expression is what I am replicating in my music, and the goal is to be able to transcend with the band into that realm of divine creativity to command an atmosphere of Edification, Exhortation and Comfort.

Olayemi Ogundola is a student of Noah Preminger.

All Longy students present full recitals as part of their education and ongoing evolution as artists. They are charged with thinking critically about what stories they tell, whose voices to amplify, and who’s in the room for their event while also considering how to use performance spaces in innovative ways and how to truly engage audiences and create interactive music experiences.
