OKRA HOMEY:

Olu Dara performs in the Current studio (Steve Seel, October 1, 2007, Minnesota Public Radio)

He got his start playing avant-garde jazz in the 1960s, but Olu Dara has finally developed his own style of West African jazz meets blues meets groove. [...]

Songs performed: "Okra," "Harlem Country Girl," and "Your Lips."

Olu Dara makes some of the just plain happiest music I've ever listened to. Like an unexpected smile or ray of sunshine. Great stuff.
