Join us for an early show with OSHUN!
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.http://www.holocene.org/event/1762706/
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 Billboard, 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.
bittersweet vol. 1 is OSHUN’s debut studio album, produced by Proda (@praiseproda), available everywhere NOW!
As teens, Music became their vice to rise above the violence they become accustomed to; their way to progress beyond it—mentally and spiritually.
Growing up witnessing both beauty and destruction around them, Highclass Hoodlums use their voices and genre bending production to immerse listeners into a world of “sophisticated rawness.
Born into a musically inclined family, she embraced the stage naturally at the age of 12. For many years she performed alongside her uncle with his traveling steel drum band.
Upon moving to Portland, she has developed the identity of a unique songstress. Her first serious moments of vocal talent were as a backup singer for an R&B artist in 2011 which led her to write songs of her own. Blossom’s jazzy neo-soul inspired voice and meaningful lyrics have found her in the favor of Portland’s underground hip-hop scene.
Graduating from Idllywild Art’s Academy in 2010, she trained in musical theatre. Since graduating she has courted the music scene and produced one self-titled EP, Amenta Abioto , and one upcoming album, Opening Flower Hymns. Receiving inspiration from the best-seller work Women Who Run With the Wolves, mythological characterization and cultural stories are reflected in the original works of Amenta Abioto.
