OSHUN are one of a kind. The New York based duo, made up of rapper-singers Niambi and Thandi are of a rare breed of artists whose transcendent music blurs the worlds of hip-hop, R&B, soul, electronic and just about everything else in between. Crafting a sound that’s entirely their own (self-described as Iya Sol), OSHUN have grown from strength to strength over the past few years and showcased exactly why they’re so special with their fantastical bittersweet vol. 1 album which also features a collaboration with COLORS alumni Jorja Smith this past April.
For their COLORS session, OSHUN invite us to their Oshuniverse with a magical performance of stand out cut “Solar Plexus”. A ray of sunshine from start to finish, the performance encompasses an energy and vibe unlike any other as both Niambi and Thandi alternate verses and melodies over a slick, spirited beat. A thread that binds each of the group’s songs is spirituality, and that’s something that you’ll find in abundance here. Dive into the Oshuniverse with the divine performance of “Solar Plexus” above and be sure to give OSHUN’s bittersweet vol. 1 project a spin too!
