Molara is an inspirational singer, songwriter, teacher and performer, whose maternal grandfather was a founder member of the George Formby society, and whose father’s cousin was Fela Kuti. After a degree in drama and French literature, Molara went on to become an original member of dub dance pioneers Zion Train. She subsequently sang and recorded with a wide range of bands and artists which include Mad Professor, Femi Kuti, The Ruts DC and Baka Beyond.
She is a musicologist and founded One Voice Choir in 2005 to celebrate her love of international singing techniques, and was one of the founders of The Narberth A Cappella Voice Festival in 2008. She is a trustee of the Natural Voice Network.
She has delivered educational provision of music and the arts to people aged 0 to 106, of differing abilities and backgrounds since 1992, and has worked for Span Arts, National Theatre of Wales, Arts Council of Wales and Ruskin Mill Trust.
She is a passionate advocate of human rights and has worked with Race Council Cymru, the Welsh government’s Race Equality Action Plan, and in promoting Seni’s Law following the death of her cousin at the hands of the police.
