*Postponed* OSHUN • Mourning [A] BLKstar – Early Show

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 sweetertomorrow for us all. Since the release of their debut mixtape ASASE YAA in 2015, OSHUN has amassed a diverse world-wide fan base better known as the Sunflower Squad. They’ve been
recognized by media heavy hitters such as Paper Magazine, 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 Latin America all while remaining full-time college students at NYU. It’s been a wonderful journey and now that these young goddesses have graduated college and live on their own, they are transitioning into the next phase of manifesting their purpose. In 2020, OSHUN is preparing for additional releases of their album series “bittersweet”, complete with captivating visuals, tour of the US, Canada, Africa, and a deeper look into their ever-evolving selves.

Mourning [A] BLKstar

(Cleveland, OH)

Mourning [A] BLKstar is a multi-generational, gender and genre non-conforming amalgam of Black Culture dedicated to servicing the stories and songs of the apocalyptic diaspora.

 

RA Washington was left bewildered after the murder of his close friend. He felt reflective and drifted into in a creative crisis. Disillusioned by the idea of making a living as an artist, he was unsure if his future as a poet and beat maker was sustainable. He knew that he needed a new spark –new voices around him– and he soon found it as he invited long time friends, LaToya Kent, and James Long to record over new beats, crafted in honor of his lost friend. It was not long before the group began to realize that they had something special. After bringing Jazz singer, Kyle Kidd into the mix, they began to record their first record, “Blk Musak,” which explores a conversation between iconic symbols and concepts that have historically sustained marginalized people– the heart of black music.
Mourning [A] BLKstar wants to communicate their vision and love for the community while collectively creating greater opportunities to create and share.
