This song is taken from Iemanjo’s debut album, Medicina, described by Inside World Music as “a fusion of South American grooves, Afro-Latin rhythms, psychedelic cumbia, and everything in-between.” More than that, it’s a sonic document of one man’s journey into the shamanic heart of South America.
The opening “Ciencia Ancestral” is a perfect illustration of that description. Lyrically, it explores the mysteries of millennia-old plant medicine traditions, even as its “punchy horn sounds, lush percussion, and driving beat” create a swirling carnival of danceable, hummable, foot-tapping summer joy.
We hope you enjoy this song. As always, thanks for listening, and if you like it please share it.
