Back to All Events


Yemanjo is a project of DJ, singer and multi-instrumentalist Ben Harris in collaboration with some of the best producers in global electronic music today, including Thornato, Lagartijeando, Srikala, Biomigrant, Scott Nice and more.  Yemanjo makes "Medicine Music for the 21st century"...writing original songs influenced by shamanic South American chants, various Afro-Latin rhythms and electronic beats.  Through a deep understanding fed by years of intensive travel and study, he spins the sonic universe of Latin America into something completely his own.  2015 saw the release of Yemanjo's first full-length album , "Medicina", on Black Swan Sounds--"a truly remarkable debut" according to Inside World Music.  A follow-up album was released in December 2017 by Colombia's KONN Recordings.  Since 2015 Yemanjo has toured the world playing festivals such as Bali Spirit, Wanderlust (US and Canada), Cosmic Convergence (Guatemala) and many more.  Yemanjo's live show is an infectious and uplifting experience combining multiple instruments and DJ beat science with live vocals in Spanish, English and Portuguese.
