Unidos por el Tambor: ÌFÉ Residency in Chicago
This event is free and open to the public.
Segundo Ruiz Belvis Cultural Center hosts future Afro-Caribeña group ÌFÉ from Puerto Rico.
Members of the group talk about their individual musical projects and how they were drawn to the concept of ÌFÉ, a bold new musical project from Puerto Rico based African American drummer/ producer/singer Otura Mun. Mun, an Ifá priest or Babalawo in the Yoruba religion, has been a vanguard artist in the Puerto Rican music scene since arriving in the the late 1990’s, producing critically acclaimed albums and songs for many of the islands most important musical voices, including Mima, Cultura Profética and Calma Carmona. ÌFÉ is Otura Mun’s first solo project.
It all ends with a Rumba/Bomba Abierta (open jam) with ÌFÉ and members of the local Afro-Caribbean Scene.
