“VOODOO ECONOMICS (WolfMan), the second single off of ÌFÉ’s forthcoming sophomore album moves as a modern day funeral song, written as a lament for Adolf Wolfgang Siemon-Otero, a beloved friend and musician gunned down in the streets of San Juan Puerto Rico, the target of a drug trafficking dispute. The song, built around sacred Afro Cuban Bata rhythms and prayers plays a powerful procession, honoring those that have fallen while stirring up a cache of questions, principally among them, why do we want so badly to be rich? And what does right and wrong ultimately mean in a society that judges us more on our outcomes than our methods?” – Otura Mun
