Soul-Shaker, Iyeoka Okoawo, Comes to Wellesley

By Dominic Esposito: Come to Wellesley’s Multifaith Center, Houghton Chapel February 13th at 7:00pm to experience a powerful performance from Iyeoka Okoawo. Iyeoka is an inspiration for artists all over the world, as she is one of few who followed her passion, morphing from a pharmacist to a full-time recording artist. Iyeoka is now one of the most sought after poetry slammers in the country. Listen to Iyeoka’s Revolution, and I promise you will want more.

Iyeoka’s performance: When Women Were Drummers is the featured art performance and digital installation of the Lyrics for Literacy project delivering native folk songs, proverbs and wisdom from Esan elders.

To catch this soul-shaking performance, catch the shuttle from Babson to Wellesley’s Chapel on Wednesday, February 13th at 6:35pm. Remember that the last shuttle leaves Wellesley at 9:10pm. For more shuttle information, click here.
