Oshun at Ghost Notes, London photos

Oshun has to be pleased with the wel­come they received at their first ever live appear­ance in London.

The hip hop, neo-soul sis­ters from New York were greet­ed by an enthu­si­as­tic crowd at Ghost Notes, Peck­ham, on Mon­day night.

Niambi Sala and Thandi­we took the audi­ence on a cos­mic jour­ney – with the help of pro­duc­er and DJ Pro­da – as they per­formed music from their recent­ly released debut album, Bit­ter­sweet Vol 1, as well as fan favourites.

Some of the high­lights includ­ed ‘Burn’, ‘Bless­ings on Bless­ings’, ‘Brown’, and a cov­er of Jill Scott’s ‘A Long Walk’.

The sis­ters were joined by spe­cial guest Che Lin­go, who bound­ed about dur­ing a ver­sion of his song ‘Black Girl Mag­ic’. They closed with a per­for­mance of ‘My World’.

Oshun have cap­tured the imag­i­na­tion of the lis­ten­ers with their songs that infuse 90s hip hop and soul (Salt-n-Pepa, Lau­ryn Hill) with woozy beats and a strong affec­tion for their African her­itage. And their jour­ney so far is more incred­i­ble still con­sid­er­ing they’ve gone from grad­u­at­ing col­lege just months ago to spread­ing their own idles on road with phe­nom­e­nal gus­to. The future is look­ing very bright for the “new god­dess on the block”.

Oshun was sup­port­ed by Tiana Major9.
