Seun Olota

Bio

Seun Olota is an Afro-fusion performing artiste, leads the ExTasI Gang Band and an advocate for persons living with special needs and physical condition. He has built his music niche within the context of dance music, hymnal, choral and therapeutic music with original compositions for strings, percussion, brass, and wood wind instruments.

As an art devotee and critic, Olota’s zeal for realism lodge views from avant-garde, expressionism, experimentalism, surrealism and impressionism - these views erupt in the amalgamation of his fusion flick of trado-urban music styles and sound shapes.

With exposures to music and theatrical studies and as a movie and stage actor; his team, The ExTaSi Gang Band is a chunk of uncommon thinkers who are also recording artistes, scholars, and directors in their own rights yet, jointly set on a trans-global theosophic quest that stretches music beyond the threshold of aural sensibility. Albums to his credit include: Home Made (2006), Home Brew (2013), and Free Spot Show-Live (2015) and Why Worry (2018).

Olota’s vast repertoire vocabulary of original compositions and album covers makes his works tailorable for corporate and informal events, sensitization and campaign initiatives, festivals, product activation, and workshops projects. With a futuristic approach to music, he has co-journeyed into studio recordings and live-performance experiments with griots, minstrels, electronic music makers and Disc-Jockeys to explore the possibilities of nouvelle directions through the fusion of sound elements and the interpretation of the African experience in relation to the existential phenomenon of human relations.

Olota is involved in advocacy and sensitization initiatives amongst which are surrogate schemes, campaign projects, and awareness programs for and with agencies on immunization, breast-feeding, down-syndrome, the polity, and gender related issues. He hosts The Free Spot Show, a weekly live music show in Lagos-Nigeria that features guest acts, discovers talents, and has formed a hub and movement for the expression of conscious and alternative music.

Other advocacy projects dear to his heart that have been executed include: walk, concerts, and fund raising projects for Down syndrome and the physically challenged. Thus far, these initiatives have recorded milestone impacts in mobilizing and enlightening the public to a better understanding of our collective duties to care giving and support for inclusive participation of all in the social process. Olota also volunteers as a music teacher and therapist at Modupe Cole Memorial Home for persons living with special needs, The Down Syndrome Foundation Nigeria School and Morainbow Foundation Care School.

He professes his credo thus, “… I revere acculturation and cultural barter initiatives because they form the spring-board required to fortify our unity, intellectual vigor and diverse collective strengths.”
