ÌFÉ (UK Debut)

Tickets:

ÌFÉ is a bold new musical project from Puerto Rico based African American drummer/producer/singer Mark Underwood, aka Otura Mun.

Underwood, an Ifá priest or 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.

“ÌFÉ fuses spiritual depth with dancehall influences... marrying the traditional with contemporary sounds to make something completely original. The music has a certain otherworldly quality that’ll resonate with even the most secular ear” – Noisey

3 Mujeres (Iború Iboya Ibosheshé) is the first single from ÌFÉ. A live, one take electronic warning shot. The tune, as seen in its debut video, is a live performance utilizing electronic drum and sampling technology in a unique and innovative way that resets conversations about modern day musical performance, present day African/Latin Diaspora music and religion, and many points in between.
