Oshun's Top Tips for NYC

Oshun make R&B with a fluidity that speaks to their Yoruba namesake. The duo evoke love, peace and spirituality in their "sonic manifestation of Afrofuturism". After first meeting at the Martin Luther King orientation at NYU, Niambi and Thandi formed Oshun in their university dance studio. Initially hopping on Dilla beats, they've since developed their own sub-genre of R&B characterised by heavy influences of reggae and roots rhythms. Check out their go-tos in New York City.
