College: Santa Rosa Junior College
Sonoma County musician Eki Shola Abrams performs and discusses her story and creative process for the Santa Rosa Junior College Arts and Lectures presentation on October 26, 2020.
“Relocating from New York City to Sonoma County, California, songwriter and physician, Eki Shola uses her music as a conduit for healing. She’s released three solo albums: 2016’s Final Beginning and in the aftermath of the wildfires that destroyed Eki Shola's home, 2019’s Possible and Drift. She has performed in the NPR’s Tiny Desk series and has opened for artists including Bebel Gilberto, Habib Koité, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Kitaro, and DakhaBrakha. Working on her keyboards and backed by digital effects, the ASCAP Plus and three-time NorBay Music Award winner for electronica, crafts jazzy, ambient tones with ethereal melodies that often carry dreamlike messages of hope and a sense of gratitude for life.”
