about

A new 3 Song EP from internationally acclaimed electronic artst ÌFÉ.
Perfomed and recorded live by Otura Mun and Lavoski at Otura Mun's spirtual house and recording studio ILÉ ÌFÉ.

"One of the things that has helped me confront the difficulty in dealing with the sadness and pain associated with the deaths of those around us is my belief that death in the physical world is not the end. As part of my spiritual practice I commune with my ancestors on a daily basis, praying for their upliftment and light for their assent, while asking for their blessings and support in my everyday life. The idea being that we are all on the same wheel of life at different points. Each playing our role to support and honor the others. The Living Dead I Ashé Bogbo Egun is my interpretation of traditional ceremonial Lucumi (Yoruban Diaspora) prayer songs in honor of the dead. The music features ceremonial Bata drumming performed electronically in ÌFÉ's signature style, each movement building in intensity. Ifá teaches us in the odu Yekun Meji that we should not fear death but embrace it as a natural part of life. As we approach the end of 2020 I felt that it was important to acknowledge and celebrate those who have passed before us. Ashé Bogbo Egun, 'power to all deceased'. " - Otura Mun
