Listen: ÌFÉ – 3 Mujeres (Iború Iboya Ibosheshé)

This just goes and goes. 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 Mark Underwood, aka Otura Mun. Underwood, an Ifá priestor 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. 3 Mujeres(Iború Iboya Ibosheshé) is the first single from ÌFÉ. A live, one take electronic warning shot. The song blends electronic drum and sampling technology in a unique and creative way that resets conversations about modern-day musical performance, present day African/Latin Diaspora music and religion, and many points in between. ÌFÉ are taking worldwide sounds and reshaping them in such a refreshing way. One of the best songs you’re likely to hear this year.
