Prachtwerk is proud to present Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter, Ondara's Rebirth Tour
Ondara grew up in Nairobi, Kenya listening to American alt-rock and making up his own songs for as long as he can remember. At an early age he fell in love with the music of Bob Dylan and was granted a visa through the immigration lottery system. He chose Minneapolis as his home to pursue a career as a singer and songwriter with Dylan in mind. He began making his way in the local music scene, continually writing songs about what he saw, felt and experienced in a place far different from home.
Ondara has toured extensively including sold out European performances, a completely sold-out headlining U.S. tour, appearances at festivals nationwide including Xponential Festival, Newport Folk Festival and Edmonton Folk Festival, and opened for the likes of The Lumineers, First Aid Kit, Neil Young, The Head & The Heart, and more.
May 9, 2023—In celebration of his critically acclaimed new album, Spanish Villager No: 3—Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Ondara headed out on his 31 date Rebirth tour - including 11 dates with Rodrigo Y Gabriela.
Of the “Rebirth” Tour, Ondara recalls, “now as I return to the road after the pandemic-induced hiatus, as I reintroduce myself to you in this new chapter of my life, it feels like a perfect opportunity to deliberately revisit that feeling, to go back to the beginning, and connect with you again in those same intimate spaces where we met for the first time. This is the intention behind the rebirth tour. To recreate and revisit that feeling we both had when we first met, but to approach it with more intention this time, to be fully present and cherish every moment."
“Ranging from a whisper to roar, soaring through lyrics that few would have the courage to sing, Ondara’s voice is a beautiful and powerfully evocative instrument." —No Depression
