Luedji Luna
Brazilian singer-songwriter Luedji Luna's music surveys and celebrates the connections between her home country and her African roots, and addresses the many ways in which Afro-Brazilians and women are marginalized in Brazil and beyond. Along the way, she presides over a sound as expansive as the distances it embodies, as Afro-Brazilian rhythms and other traditional sounds meld with familiar strains of R&B, jazz, and electronic beats.

Opening set by Toronto's Luanda Jones.

ÌFÉ at Canadian Music Week

ÌFÉ at Canadian Music Week

Futuro Libre MIIM - Mercado Internacional de la Industria Musical, Uma Nota Culture and CMW Presents ÌFÉ at the Lula Lounge

Tickets on Sale via TicketWeb Canada Now

DOORS: 6PM

A powerfully progressive synthesis of electronic sound and Afro-Caribbean language, ÌFÉ is 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 his arrival there in the late 1990's, producing critically acclaimed albums and songs for many of the islands most important musical voices.


ÌFÉ's newest release, THE TEARER (Bembe) is a dark and twisting ode to sudden change, the night, the storm. Lead single from the group's newest album, the song explores the energy of Oyá, the Yoruban goddess of storms and guardian of the cemetery gates. She brings the winds of change, reminding us that from chaos and destruction comes rebirth.

The album, titled "OOOO+OOOO" and pronounced "Oi Yekun MayYee" is a musical exploration of the second sign of the Ifá divination system, the female companion to "IIII+IIII," ÌFÉ's first album. This record and the first can be thought of as 2 opposing forces combining to create one body of work, each needing the other to express the larger narrative. With that relationship in mind, OOOO+OOOO is an ode to female energy, the night, our ancestors and the invisible world. A welcoming embrace of death as a crucial form of transformation. Here the music is more aggressive, more questioning, and with a more deeply rooted sense of ability, maturity. This is music for the night and all things that move in darkness and shadow.
