BANGAH (Pico y Palo), the lead single from ÌFÉ’s forthcoming LP “IIII+IIII”, is a literal one word war cry for freedom in the here and now, a musical declaration of independence.

Built around director Otura Mun’s reflections on the Orisha Ogún, the Yoruban “God of War”, Bangah is the relentless sound of the machete, the face of determination, and the flat out rejection of fear on any personal level. It’s decided, we prepare, we begin. BANGAH!!!
