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 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!
