The ensemble is led by Nigerian master percussionist Najite Agindotan who was mentored and eventually taken as a godson by the late, great Fela Anikulapo Kuti. This 16+ piece ensemble embraces the restless genius of Fela's afrobeat music as well as expanding into their own unique blend of jazz, funk, highlife, and traditional West African drumming and folk song. 

Many of Southern California's best instrumentalists have lent their talent to N.O.P. over the years--Phil Ranelin, Nate Morgan, Bobby Bryant, Jerri Jheto, Jim Thompson, the late, great Billy Harris and many more-- the current band represents a cross-generational accumulation of their spirit and wisdom.

The message of the Olokun Prophecy is that there is an Age of Goodness coming and we must help to usher it in together.
