Count Tutu has been a quintessential part of the Tulsa music scene since forming in 2015. Led by Nathan Wright and Branjae Jackson, the 9-piece band brings together bass, drums, guitar, horns and striking vocals to form a sound that transcends any one genre. While the band cites Nigerian Afrobeat icon Fela Kuti as its biggest influence, its music is also rooted in R&B, funk and Latin music. Count Tutu effortlessly juxtaposes lively, dance-friendly music with lyrics rooted in community and social issues.
