When Eddie and I decided to perform as a duo, it was the decision that led to the manifestation of a vision I had almost 20 years ago. We decided to call ourselves the Ogún Meji Duo to reflect our understanding that the purpose of music is to heal, uplift, and inspire others toward their greatest selves.

This performance, the first of the Holler31 series that took place in March of 2017, captured our process, our thinking, and the conversation we have with our audiences which ask “who are you,” “who are we” and “how can we help each other be better so we can make the world better?”
