15.4.2020

UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra and British-Nigerian soul singer-songwriter Ola Onabulé did not give up on moving their joint concert from April to December, but decided to delight their fans by implementing the music video as a remote recording.

UMO Helsinki musicians recorded and filmed their own parts in their homes, the soloist performed the vocal part in his home studio in London. The song chosen was Never Known, composed and written by soloist Ola Onabulé and arranged by UMO Helsinki’s chief conductor and artistic director Ed Partyka.
