Moe's Alley presents a doubl bill featuring 2 of Santa Cruz's most exciting live acts DANJUMA & ONOLA and BLYNDSITE.

Danjuma Adama, founder and musical director of Danjuma & Onola, was born into a family tradition of music in the city of Lagos, Nigeria (West Africa). Danjuma has played and recorded with King Sunny Ade, Fela Kuti Anikulapo, Babatunde Olatunji, Hugh Masakela, ZuluSpear, and Monomomo And Highlife Messengers. In 1983 he helped to cast the band O.J. Ekemode and the Nigerian all Stars with whom he recorded and toured North America. In 1986 he co-founded two popular Bay Area Afro-Beat bands, Kotoja Ntu Shamala.

With Onola, Danjuma is still interested in pursuing African styles of music, shaped and informed by other musical influences. Years ago, in Nigeria, he lived for a time in the home of Fela, a major international star, and, since Fela's death 12 years ago, Danjuma said he feels the need to carry on Fela's example by spreading Afro-beat to the widest possible audience and to be part of that style's evolution.
