OSHUN – ASASE YAA

OSHUN – ASASE YAA

Loving the vibe these ladies are creating….. Thandiwe and Niambi Sala are Oshun. According to Thandi, “Oshun is a Yoruba deity—a West African, traditional deity. She’s a goddess, and she governs over sweet waters. She’s basically the mother of love, fertility, wealth, and diplomacy. At the time that we decided to come together, her energy was just very present. It was primarily Niambi’s idea because she had more knowledge on Oshun, but we both felt her energy and felt moved to dedicate the music to her and all of Yoruba culture.” Niambi express that “the album is called ASASE YAA​, and it’s kind of a continuation of AFAHYE. I think that the album shows how we’ve matured and how we’ve grown as artists. ASASE YAA is a West African term for Mother Earth. Conceptually, the reason that we chose the name ASASE YAA is that the album is commemorating Mother Earth in a couple of different ways. I think that the album shows an appreciation of the Earth. It’s about seeing the Earth as our home and loving and caring for it. We particularly wanted to focus on the concept of the woman as Earth, especially the symbol of the black woman as Mother Earth. We wanted to uplift her and discuss what it is to be a black woman in America. You have to know where you’re from to know where you’re going. So the entire project is a journey of us returning, as African-Americans who are here as a result of the trans-Atlantic slave trade, to retrieve things that we’ve lost and things that we’ve been deprived of. It’s about becoming whole again. Stream and then download their latest mixtape then get up on game and download the first mixtape AFAHYE. Enjoy!
