In the Yoruba pantheon, Ṣango is the ideal lover for Oshun as her fierce protector. Ṣango provides Divine and positive masculine energy to balance well with Oshun's Divine feminine energy. As part of coming to terms with the imbalance and challenges of modern relationships today, OSHUN searches for the Divine and positive masculine energy in this video.
Oshun is the "unseen mother present at every gathering", because she is the Yoruba understanding of the cosmological forces of water, moisture, and attraction. Manhattan-based vocalists Niambi Sala and Thandiwe sing and perform for the purpose of spreading her essence and the essences of her sisters, specifically Yemaya, through music. Together they are OSHUN, a duo characterized by yellow and blue (the colors of Oshun and Yemaya, respectively), soul, hip-hop, community service, and love.

v. bozeman’s statement in race jones
V. Bozeman made a bold musical statement about race in her electrified first single, "Race Jones." Written by Cee Lo, the song tackles “the spirit of what Black is,” says Bozeman whose decision to release "Race Jones" right now was spurred by the “terrible tragedy” that was Michael Brown’s shooting and a Ferguson grand jury’s decision to not indict police officer Darren Wilson.
“I am disgusted and outraged at how the judicial system time and again justifies criminals that portray themselves as the law and authority.” she tells ESSENCE.com. As one of two artists signed to Timbaland’s Mosley Music Group, Bozeman plans to use her new footing as a platform for change. “It’s time for us as a new generation of artists to start using the platforms that we fight so hard to get, to our advantage,” she says.

Want spend thirty minutes in the Garden?
Often, we hear of conversations of inspiration with sistas about the Garden. Photographers are inspired by a sista’s presence and/or she is curious and inspired by the images in Pangea and this leads to discussions creating captures of afrosensual glamour, possibly as earthSistas. It takes a level of boldness to step in front of the camera, baring your natural beauty for the world to see. And such an action is not for everyone. But every woman should have the opportunity to explore her inner diva. Thirty Minutes in the Garden is a way to do that from an afrosensual perspective.
