Tunde Olaniran

Our region has been known for generations as a hub of innovation in music. Artists from our area are part of a family tree — a continuum of musicians who redefine or shape their genres for the generation to come.

That includes Tunde Olaniran, a Flint native and a musician with a physical presence that’s as eclectic and boundary-pushing as his music.

Last year, he released a new album of personal and entrancing stories on Stranger.

He joins Detroit Today with Stephen Henderson to talk about Stranger and his big year in 2018.
