ABOUT RIDDIM DOCTORS

The Riddim Doctors Project album celebrates dynamism of music of African origin. The much-anticipated “ỌPẸ” debut album, was conceived many years ago by Two-time GRAMMY® Award winner Sikiru Adepoju, a world-renowned master of Nigerian talking drum. Riddim Doctors project is one out many to come from the dynamic drummer.

“ỌPẸ” (Yoruba-Nigeria word for Gratitude) follows the unveiling of three appetizing singles from the collection: “Ajaja” (I am The Spirit); “Goin’ Somewhere”; and “TakeMe Home, Country Roads” – a vibrant remake of John Denver’s iconic song of the same title. Other titles from the 9-track album include: “Dide Afrika” (Wake Up Afrika); “Idaji” (Sunrise); “I’ll Take You There”; “Ire Temi” (My Success); “Palm Wine”; and “Lana Dewa” (Clear The Way).

The album features known musicians such as, Babatunde Olatunji, Giovanni Hidalgo, Zakir Hussain, Audio Angel (Rashida Clendening), Oz Ezzeldin, Bola Abimbola, Lindsey Schust, Paul Tao El-Shaddai, Sammy Fayoseh, including current Dead & Company keyboardist Jeff Chimenti, onetime Bob Weir collaborator and onetime Primus drummer Jay Lane and Widespread Panic bassist Dave Schools.

The lifeblood of the album is to elevate people’s spirits and ignite the essence of “ỌPẸ” in the listener. When the spirit of “ỌPẸ” is awakened in you, you will see the good in every situation. Embracing the spirit of “ỌPẸ,” gratitude, can reduce most of the tensions in our lives as we transform into better and more loving human beings. Unleash the spirit of “ỌPẸ” in you!
