About the event
Yemanjo is a project of producer, DJ, and singer/multi-instrumentalist Ben Harris. Born and raised in the rich cultural stew of California's Bay Area, Harris has called Lake Atitlan, Guatemala home since 2016. His original music is a polyrhythmic concoction of downtempo/ethnic house beats blended with traditional instruments and tribal chants from Latin America, Africa and the Middle East--influences drawn from Harris' near-constant world travels. He is well-known on the international conscious dance circuit in Europe, the US and in Central America, where he is part of the vanguard (along with Mose and other artists) of a flowering dance scene in Lake Atitlan.
Yemanjo has released on some of the top organic house labels in recent years, including Cosmic Awakenings, Cafe de Anatolia, Kybele, Shango Records and many more.
His new all-original live set features French looping artist/musician Sito Reno in a hypnotic and danceable fusion of high-vibrational electronic beats with traditional ethnic instruments like mbira, kora and ngoni as well as vocals in multiple languages.
