2015 release. A truly unique fusion of South American shamanic music, Afro-Latin rhythms, soul-tinged vocals and electronic beats, Medicina is the brainchild of singer and multi-instrumentalist Ben Harris, who performs under the name Iemanjo. This name signifies a masculine embodiment of Iemanja, the Brazilian goddess of the sea to whom Harris feels connected. On Medicina's ten tracks, from the psychedelic soul of "Reality" to the Cumbia-inspired "Sol y Luna", Harris sings in Spanish, Portuguese and English about hope and gratitude for life; he expresses a heartfelt intention to harmonize man's relationship with nature and himself - simple, timeless tenets based in the traditions from which he draws inspiration. His masterful voice, trumpet, ukulele and percussion dance in perfect concert with contributions from a talented cast of guest musicians including Colombian flute and string master Juan Carlos Arevalo. True to his vision and unique in his sound, Iemanjo's music has already drawn comparisons to such disparate artists as Manu Chao, Stevie Wonder and Beirut. Together with sought-after NYC producers Thornato and Srikalogy and Brazilian beatmaker Adriano Magalhaes, Harris recorded the tracks in New York City and Brazil throughout 2014. The album was mastered by respected Brazilian DJ/producer Sergio Brentan at Fluxfield Studio in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
