Coflo‘s “A Warrior’s Dance” takes as its inspiration “a small rainforest frog (Rã) witnessing an earthly dance exchange between two great Orisha warriors, Oya and Ogun.”

The title track of the Bay Area artist’s latest EP on Ocha Records is a whirlwind of grooves and deep rhythms, spellbinding and entrancing. Ron Trent steps up for an electrifying remix that clocks in at ten scintillating minutes, epic in scope and awash in phases of thunder and song, clarity and delirium.

The “Backside Mix” is one for the ages too, featuring a celestial turn on the keys from frequent Ocha recording artist Ezel.

Colfo’s “A Warrior’s Dance” is out now on 12″ vinyl and digital from Ocha Records.
