OSHUN is a Brooklyn-based neo-soul/hip-hop duo whose music preaches love, peace, and social justice. Their infectious songs and powerful live performances have cultivated a growing grassroots following leading to more than a million streams on Soundcloud and almost two million on YouTube. As strong fashion and lifestyle influencers their social media retains a dedicated and engaged following as they continue working on their official debut album and look towards graduating from NYU this spring. The name OSHUN pays homage to the Yoruba deity of fresh waters that governs over love, diplomacy, wealth, intimacy, and beauty. Inspired by other socially conscious artists such as Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, yasiin bey, A Tribe Called Quest, and many others, OSHUN aims to share their positive and socially conscious music with the world.
