Nigerian-born, but based out of Cincinnati, Ohio, Baoku Moses is an accomplished African singer, songwriter, drummer and dancer. Inspired by the famous Fela Kuti, his style of Afrobeat is exhilarating, laced with complex rhythms and bursting with Moses’ expert percussive skills. Many of his songs, like Kuti’s, teach messages of unity and peace. He currently leads the group Baoku & The Image Afro-Beat band, but on this episode of BTR Hear & There, he performs solo on a rooftop in Manhattan.
Okodoro Oro (“The Realistic Reality”) is the debut album by Baoku Moses.
