LHST Presents: ÌFÉ

A powerfully progressive synthesis of electronic sound and Afro-Caribbean language, ÌFÉ is a bold new musical project from Puerto Rico based African American drummer/​producer/​singer Otura Mun. Mun, an Ifá priest or Babalawo in the Yoruba religion, has been a vanguard artist in the Puerto Rican music scene since his arrival there in the late 1990’s, producing critically acclaimed albums and songs for many of the islands most important musical voices.

ÌFÉ’s newest release, THE TEARER (Bembe) is a dark and twisting ode to sudden change, the night, the storm. Lead single from the group’s newest album, the song explores the energy of Oyá, the Yoruban goddess of storms and guardian of the cemetery gates. She brings the winds of change, reminding us that from chaos and destruction comes rebirth.

ÌFÉ’s Oya tribute is afro-house as truth-telling…. Musical marriages of old souls and new technology rarely get this deep or this earthy.” – AFROPUNK
