Yemanjo is a project of DJ, producer and multi-instrumentalist Ben Harris. Inspired as much by the African music he was exposed to growing up in the Bay Area as by the folkloric sounds he encountered on solo South American wanderings, Yemanjo’s sound is both constantly evolving and difficult to define. His body of work is stylistically diverse yet grounded in an earthy organic feeling born of Harris’ belief in the power of music as medicine. The production reflects a deep respect for the myriad cultural idioms he works within, yet he spins this sonic universe into something completely his own.
When not on tour in the US or Europe, Yemanjo can be found an integral part of the flowering conscious events scene in his adopted home of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala.
