Paul Ubana Jones brings his soulful, contemporary style to Wellington Museum. 17th Jan

One of New Zealand’s greatest musical assets, Paul Ubana Jones has graced the stage with music legends such as Taj Mahal, Keb Mo, Norah Jones, Bob Dylan, Crowded House and many others.

Born in London to a Yorkshire mother and a Nigerian father, Paul Ubana Jones was playing guitar by the age of 11. This was the beginning of a three-decade career that would see him crossing continents and recording eight albums.

After graduating from music college, where he studied guitar, cello and composition, Paul began to forge his own contemporary style, influenced by blues, rock, folk and jazz, which he has developed over the years.

In the late eighties, Paul moved to New Zealand, where he still lives. He continues to perform regularly in New Zealand, Australia, and internationally. Over the years, Paul has shared the stage with various artists, including Taj Mahal, Keb Mo, Norah Jones, Bob Dylan, Tuck and Patti, Crowded House and many others.

This is a music experience not to be missed!
