Ebunoluwa Oguntola

Described by NPR as a “curious and enterprising young artist,” Fayetteville, New York native Ebun (age 16) has delved into composition, conducting, songwriting, production, and multi-instrumentalism. Commissioned to write a piece for Grammy-award winning violinist Johnny Gandelsman, her piece “Reflections” was described by the New York Times as “somber yet mysterious…spurs Gandelsman towards contrasts of bow pressure, suggesting unpredictable twists of an individual’s mind.” The full album, This is America, reached No. 2 on the Billboard Traditional Classical Chart. In 2021, Ebun was featured on From the Top, where she was interviewed by Kevin Olusola from Pentatonix, on NPR.
