 Gospel is the biggest music in Africa and one of the biggest choirs of them all is the mighty Yoruba Women Choir founded by singer Funmi Olawumi in 2006 and featuring 10 female soloists and six piece band to present a show that is bursting with intense soulful passion. This is the music that inspires the mind and uplifts the soul. The choir have married the intricate rhythms and harmonies of their native Nigerian musical traditions to the sounds and sentiments of Christian gospel music. The result is a musical and spiritual alchemy that has touched a worldwide audience representing every corner of the religious, cultural and ethnic landscape. The Yoruba Women Choir are Ayinke Martins, Joy Aigbekan, Nike Fagbuaro, Biola Dosumu, Dupe Lawnson, Mary Oguntade, Tinu Adewoye, Biola Ojugbele, Esther Mabadeje, Comfort Oyelumade and Funmi Olawumi. The band members are Taiye Agbaye (guitar), Kayode Adeniran (bass), John Bello (drums), Wole Aina (percussion) and Wale Ogungbe (talking drum) Soulful vocalist Bumi Thomas opens the show with her full band featuring guitarist Jon Speedy, bassist Matteo Grassi, drummer Juilian Weishaupt and keyboardist Paul Silver.
