Oshun

Oshun / The Fleece, Bristol | 15th of May

Oshun discussed the origin of their title in a recent interview: ‘a West African traditional deity…a goddess who governs over sweet waters’. This benevolent figure in Yoruba religion marks the duo’s project as one of grandiose intention.

OSHUN is an independent Hip-Hop / Soul duo and the sonic manifestation of Afrofuturism. Using digital and acoustic sounds, heavy drums and bass, and ambient harmonic textures, OSHUN connects with the spirit of their ancestors to manifest a sweeter tomorrow for us all. Since the release of their debut mixtape ASASE YAA in 2015, OSHUN has amassed a social following of over 150k people between Youtube (youtube.com/oshun), Instagram (@oshun), and Facebook (facebook.com/oshuniverse) alone. They’ve been recognized by media heavy hitters such as Rolling Stone, The FADER, Viceland, Huffington Post, NPR, Essence, and Vogue (just to name a few). They’ve also performed throughout the U.S. and Brazil all while remaining full-time college students at NYU. It’s been a wonderful journey and now that these young goddesses have graduated college, they are transitioning into the next phase of manifesting their purpose. OSHUN is preparing for the release of their debut album series “bittersweet”, complete with captivating visuals, a 2 month long tour of the US & Canada, and a deeper look into their ever-evolving selves.

Before playing The Fleece in Bristol on May 15th, OSHUN will be playing Ghost Notes in London the night before. The UK end of the tour will finish in Manchester’s Soup Kitchen on May 17th.
