In order to know where we are going, we need to know where came from. At times, women of colour are so poorly represented in history that you can exist without being able to name more than one or two who were pivotal in resisting colonisation & oppression.

“With their distinctive psych rock and tribal influences (not to mention the booming, soulful vocals of vocalist Oya [Chantal Brown]), Vodun are certainly a very original entity within the UK’s current stoner/doom scene. ”
