Seun Olota is a composer, performing artist, and leads the ExTasI band. He has built his music stint within the context of dance, club, hymnal, choral, and therapeutic music with original compositions and orchestrations for the family of strings, percussion, brass, and wind instruments.
An art devotee and critique with zeal for realism whilst not disregarding views from absurdism, expressionism, experimentalism, surrealism, and impressionism in the world of ISMs. These views amalgamate his fusion flick of trado-urban music styles and sound shapes.
With exposures to musical and theatrical workshops, his band is a chunk of uncommon thinkers who are also recording artistes, scholars, and directors in their own rights yet, jointly set on a phrenic and theosophic quest that stretches music beyond aural sensibility into the threshold of touch, sight, taste, and smell.
He is involved in advocacy and sensitization initiatives amongst which are surrogate schemes, campaign projects, and awareness programs for and with agencies on breast-feeding, immunization, and gender related and marital issues, polity, and hosts a weekly live music show (The Free Spot Show) at The Freedom Park Lagos-Island in Nigeria featuring guest acts.
He professes his credo simply thus, “... I revere acculturation and cultural barter initiatives because they form the spring board required to fortify our unity and intellectual vigor.”
