Yemanjo is a project of DJ, singer and multi-instrumentalist Ben Harris in collaboration with some of the best producers in global electronic music today, including Thornato, Lagartijeando, Srikala, Biomigrant, Scott Nice and more. Yemanjo makes "Medicine Music for the 21st century"...writing original songs influenced by shamanic South American sounds, various Afro-Latin rhythms and electronic beats; he spins the sonic universe of Latin America into something completely his own. A live Yemanjo show is an infectious and uplifting experience combining live instrumentation and DJ beat science with live vocals in Spanish, English and Portuguese. Yemanjo's ecstatic dance sets have been enjoyed on both US coasts, in Europe, Bali, and Central America since 2015. When not on tour, he can be found an integral part of the emerging conscious dance scene in his adopted home of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala.
