Olatuja Explores the Music of Empowered Women with Inspirational Reinterpretations on new CD “Intuition: Songs From The Minds of Women” 

Alicia Olatuja is perfectly suited to deliver a meditation on the depth of women’s musical expression. She puts her distinctively soulful stamp on every track, giving beloved South American anthem “Grácias A La Vida” by Violeta Parra a funky update with Memphis-style horns while acing the Spanish lyrics; building bridges to the Motherland with African choruses on Angela Bofill’s “Under The Moon And Over The Sky,” and adding a Caribbean jump-up beat to the Linda Creed co-composition “People Make the World Go Round.”  Her creative approach also reimagines Brenda Russell’s “So Good, So Right,” the focus track Sade Adu’s “No Ordinary Love,” Joni Mitchell’s “Cherokee Louise,” Tracy Chapman’s “Give Me One Reason,” Kate Bush’s “This Woman’s Work,” and Imogen Heap’s “Hide And Seek.” The set includes an original tune by Olatuja, as well as compositions by a new composer and an Australian colleague. Release date February 22, 2019 on Resilience Music Group.
