Editors' Notes Steven Umoh is Afrofuturism made musical reality. His dual upbringing in Nigeria and London had a palpable influence on his sleek compositions, which he first started releasing under the name Obongjayar in 2014. He sings in a jittery whisper across thrilling fusions of electronic and acoustic rhythmic pulses, producing something which sounds like the deep past and the distant future at the same time.
