Dancer: Pia Love

CRITICAL PRAISE FOR ÌFÉ

"ÌFÉ fuses spiritual depth with dancehall influences... marrying the traditional with contemporary sounds to make something completely original.» «The music has a certain otherworldly quality that'll resonate with even the most secular ear." - NOISEY

"This year, we've paid special attention to artists like Ibeyi and Daymé Arocena, who not only approach their music with tons of soul, but also embrace their Afro-Caribbean roots and the Yoruba language. ÌFÉ is a new Puerto Rican project that just came our way, and it also fits that description perfectly." - REMEZCLA

"ÌFÉ's new video for '3 Mujeres' invokes the griot tradition of Yoruba music and Cuban rumba, bringing them into the digital age. If there are spiritual hymns to be found in the matrix, this is what they should sound like." - LARGE UP
