Ezra Collective for Dublin show

Ezra Collective

The Mercury Music Prize 2023 winners are playing Dublin this November.

The English modern jazz band have just announced a new single and video for ‘Ajala’, the first since their Mercury-winning album Where I’m Meant To Be and UK and European tour dates.

Their Dublin show happens at 3Olympia Theatre on November 11th 2024.

Tickets from €24.50 plus booking fees on sale Friday 3rd May at 10AM from Ticketmaster.

“’Ajala’ interpolates the sounds of Afrobeats and Highlife with Jazz, the single nods to the nomadic spirit of the infamous Olabisi Ajala, the Ghanaian-Nigerian world adventurer who ambitiously took on touring the world on his scooter, covering 87 countries.

Femi Koleoso on “Ajala”:

‘Ajala the Traveller is a journalist from Nigeria whose story is really beautiful. He decided that he wanted to travel the whole world on a moped and what ended up happening was his name became slang in Yoruba.

‘Ajala travel’ is slang for someone that can’t sit still. It’s the way a lot of people would describe me, but for me it’s also what a great drum beat does, it’s what great music does to me, it means I can’t sit still and I just want to move. Ajala is all about that movement.’
