Beats Per Minute states that “Oya,” from the new Combo Chimbita record IRÉ, is “a reflective, slowburn affair, sneaking up on you until you’re entirely ensnared by its gorgeous, gleaming tendrils.” The site quotes singer Carolina Oliveros, who says that “Oya is a very powerful feminine deity, goddess of storms and winds, guardian of cemeteries, and an entangled duel between calm and despair. this song animates that reminder of a nuanced life where many of us share a calm external facade, while facing an internal whirlwind of uncertainty. It’s the meditative sigh that precedes moving forward toward our desires and dreams with conviction.“ See the clip, featuring interdisciplinary queer artist Lio Villahermosa, here.
