#OSHUNIVERSE
Oshun is the Yoruba deity of fresh waters that governs over love, diplomacy, wealth, intimacy, and beauty. Sheโ€™s one of a three sister trilogy including Oya, deity of the graveyard, and Yemaya, deity of the salt waters who is known to have protected the Africans brought to the shores of the diaspora as slaves. She is the ocean, the essence of motherhood, and a fierce protector of children.
Oshun is the "unseen mother present at every gathering", because she is the Yoruba understanding of the cosmological forces of water, moisture, and attraction. Therefore, she is believed to be omnipresent and omnipotent. Her power is represented in a Yoruba proverb, which reminds us that "no one is enemy to water" and therefore everyone has need of and should respect and admire Oshun, as well as her followers.
Manhattan-based vocalists Niambi Sala and Thandiwe sing and perform for the purpose of spreading her essence and the essences of her sisters, specifically Yemaya, through music. Together they are OSHUN, a duo characterized by yellow and blue (the colors of Oshun and Yemaya, respectively), soul, hip-hop, community service, and love.
As the proverb says, โ€œno one is enemy to waterโ€, and their goal is to share Oshunโ€™s peaceful omnipresence for the bigger purpose of empowering women, and all people, instilling confidence, cultural pride, and self-respect.
This bigger purpose is within a re-emerging movement of cultural realignment, awareness, and creativity. #NUBIANMAFIA
