about

"House of Love (Ogbe Yekun)," ÌFÉ's second single is a ghostly, beckoning musical offering. Recorded live using improvised electronic instruments, ÌFÉ mixes Cuban Rumba with the digital sounds of Jamaican Dancehall, creating a musical space and expression altogether its own. At times tender, at other moments seductive and flirtatious, the song is an invitation / an offering to those forces that walk among us and a reminder that life is nothing if not a constant act of giving to receive.

lyrics

Written and performed by Otura Mun // June 2015

Chorus: Algo pa' ti, Algo pa' mi, Divino verdad que si?
Tu Caridad, Dulce Angel Guardián, Divino, Magica. (Repite 2X)


Verse 1: Dime hermano soy tu servidor.
El mundo frio, siento el dolor.
Serpientes a mi alrededor.
No me toquen, saben mejor.
Aché?? Skywalkel.

Chorus 2X

Verse 2: Te adoro eres única.
Quédate un minuto más.
Mucho vampiros tipo Dracula.
Su mundo chiquito, nuestra un galaxia.
Tu luz brillante, Jupiter.

Chorus 2X
Bridge Chant/Improv....

Verse 3: Dime abuelo soy tu servidor.
Tu bendición, quiero ser mejor.
Este agua mar pacifico.
Africano Duppy Conqueror.
Camino? Mucho Blanco.

Chorus 2X
Bridge Chant/Improv....

Montuno / Prayer to Eggun (Yoruban Language)

Awo! Awo!
Ikianbela o La Osha Ambelawo! (5X)

Shamboro!
Ambelawo! (4X)

Repite to end....
