Drummer, producer, singer, and Yoruba priest (or Babalawo) Otura Mun is the visionary creator of ÌFÉ. This Puerto Rico–based project fuses Cuban rumba, sacred Yoruba praise songs, Jamaican dancehall music, and American R&B with cutting-edge electronica. With its ensemble of singers and dancers, ÌFÉ conjures trance-like moods that shift from otherworldly serenity to the raw and ecstatic. NPR’s Felix Contreras called ÌFÉ’s debut album IIII+IIII (2017) “one of those I can’t figure out how I ever lived without.” Hear ÌFÉ live and you will feel the same.
