A2SF is thrilled to welcome multidisciplinary artist Tunde Olaniran to Top of the Park. Hailing from Flint, Olaniran is a creative tour de force whose work spans music, dance, film, literature, and performance art. Their debut and sophomore albums led to critical praise from a string of notable outlets, including The New York Times, Rolling Stone, and NPR. Olaniran has produced impactful work in collaboration with artists like Mona Haydar, adrienne maree brown, Nick Cave, Esperanza Spalding, and Yo-Yo Ma. Olaniran is a 2017 Art Matters Fellow, 2019 United States Artist Fellow, and 2020 University of Michigan Artist-in-Residence. Olaniran’s work for PBS won a 2021 Regional Emmy and in 2022, they created an experimental short film/exhibition entitled Made A Universe, commissioned by Cranbrook Art Museum. Olaniran is gearing up to release their third studio album, Chaotic Good, later this year. Their most recent release is the single “Believe,” a moody R&B-infused pop song with powerful lyrics. Don’t miss the glorious, big-hearted, life-affirming experience of an Olaniran live show at A2SF this summer.
