This first single from the new musical collective Visti’s Vinyl Collective takes inspiration from Afrobrazillian religions such as the Yoruba and Candomblé.

The song is written and performed by Brazilian singer Vanja Santos and references Ogum, a warrior spirit and deity of metallurgy, also known as the “god of iron.”

The song is produced by Markus Artved and Jonas Visti who reflect the thematics of battle and war with a fierce, club-inspired edge. A sound that builds on deeper instrumental layers, performed by some of Denmark’s finest jazz musicians: Jacob Artved (gr), Nikolaj Svaneborg (keys) and Peter Stenbæk (percussion).

‘Ogum’ is the first taste of a full length album, which lands in the fall of this year. The album will feature artists such as Emma Sehested Høeg, Dawda Jobarteh, Jonathan Bremer, Oilly Wallace and Johannes Warmberg.

The main man behind the collective is Danish musician, DJ and radio host Jonas Visti, known for his dissemination of global jazz, funk and rock, particular from the southern hemisphere, through his show Visti’s Vinyls on Danish public radio P8.

Visti’s Vinyl Collective is comprised of musicians from the Danish jazz scene who collaborate with special guests from South America and Africa. Musically, the project is a creative extension of his radio show: not really bound by genre or conventions but by an easy-going, warm, colorful sensibility and an ethos focused on the collective functions of music.
