about

Obatala is the Orisha of Peace, Wisdom, Clarity. He is the King of the White Cloth. His natural domain is the mountain top, his colour is white, snails and Elephants are sacred to him. Sometimes known as Oshanla or Oxala in Brasil. This track is a merge of three musical spiritual traditions from Yoruba Land, Brasil and Cuba. Honouring the fact that there are many branches to one tree. Thankyou so much to Tim Harrison for his footage of Obatala Dance in Santiago. Here is the link to his channel for more. www.youtube.com/user/MrTharrison



Practitioners in Cuba and the Afro-Cuban Diaspora, The London Lucumi Choir was formed in November 2006 by Afro Cuban Singer Extraordinaire Martha Galarraga and Musician Daniela Rosselson De Armas and assisted by Dave Pattman ( Omo Aña) after many years of running voice workshops dedicated to singing songs for the Orisha (Yoruba deities). It is the first non audition choir of its kind welcoming members regardless of age. They have members aged 15 to over 70 from all walks of life. The choir sings songs to the Orisha accompanied by traditional Bata Drums and occasionally other Afro-Cuban Genres, but with original arrangements by MD Daniela.

Rafael Greifer, better known by his stage name Raf Riley, is a record producer and artist from North London. He was formerly a member of ExR alongside Etta Bond, and is signed to OddChild Music with releases on Diplo's renowned Mad Decent label. Raf Riley has worked with many artists including Professor Green, Labrinth, Diplo, Naughty Boy, Dr. Luke, Plan B. and Mike Skinner.
