Tosin Aribisala

tosinaribisala2Composer, vocalist and percussionist, Tosin, has spent years cultivating the connection between music of his Nigerian heritage and diaspora genres like jazz, funk, reggae and AfroCuban. A renaissance force to be reckoned with, Tosin has stayed true to the African-rooted art form of musical heroes like King Sunny Ade, Fela Kuti, Manu Dibango, Majek Fashek, Papa Wemba and Salif Keita, while creating refreshing, new vibrations with his fusion of jazz and world music, a style he calls “Afrikan Rhapsody.” Tosin writes and sings in Yoruba, Pidgin English and English.
