We’re just under a month away from the release of Daymé Arocena much-anticipated, One Takes EP, and “Gods Of Yoruba” is the latest offering from the record.
“Gods of Yoruba” is a version of a Horace Silver track, an example of how the finished EP is almost as much a tour through interesting corners of Gilles Peterson’s record collection as it is through Daymé’s range as a performer.
Speaking to Okayafrica the singer explained “Gods of Yoruba is the perfect mix between my jazzy mood and my spiritual Santería songs. It doesn’t have any lyrics to hold your mind; you can fly and get connected with the sky: Open heart!”
