The Late Comet: Azudi Onyejekwe
December 1, 2017
Join singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Azudi Onyejekwe (Broadway’s The Great Comet and Violet) and his band for an intimate night of R&B, soul, and pop. The night will include selections from his in-progress currently untitled EP among other originals, ranging the gamut from urban political anthems, to 80’s era inspired pop/R&B, to pure stripped down acoustic soul.
Azudi is a Brooklyn based artist/thinker with a musical style that harkens back to various bygone eras of R&B and Soul. As the last born of six, to two incredible Nigerian born parents who immigrated to America in the 70’s, infectious melodies, soulful basslines, African diasporic rhythms and a transnational consciousness have permeated his existence for as long as he can remember. Join him as he explores love, loss, and speaking truth to power… with a little help from some Comet friends.
