Who Is…Gloria MadukaPosted on Friday, October 14th, 2011 at 6:19 AM
Gloria Maduka is a unique international singer-songwriter. Her music and dance styles are influenced by mainstream pop rock infused with African elements. While a young teenager in Nigeria, Gloria began to perform in church to large audiences before departing for the US to further pursue her career in music and college degrees.
She has developed a unique trademark which is enhanced by her ability to also write and sing in Yoruba and Spanish. Her techniques with the conga, bongo, and djembe among other percussion instruments set her apart from other female artists. In spite of Maduka graduating Magna Cum Laude and being the only Honors student in her graduating class, she gave up law school in pursuit of her music dreams.
Gloria Maduka’s debut album, “Of Light and Angels” is an eclectic mix of Alternative Rock, Pop, Reggae, and Soul, with her unique style of delivery blending all the tracks on the album together. It is a testimony that anyone can go as far as they can dream. It is a very personal album that speaks about life and love experiences which showcase Maduka from the heart.
