Multi-talented Urban World Music artist WolfHawkJaguar’s music stirs the soul with a mixture of Spirituality, raptured in the heart of Hip Hop, Reggae, and Rhythm & Blues. Currently residing in Oakland, the California native is a prolific musician, actor and award winning film maker.
In 2013 Adimu Madyun aka WolfHawkJaguar, was invited to perform at the 10th annual Orisa World Congress in Ile Ife Nigeria. A camera crew followed him on the journey to document his adventure. What came out is the magical film, “Search for The Everlasting Coconut Tree.”
Subsequently, WolfHawkJaguar has released various songs and video clips, drawing from the film. After the release of the tracks and visual clips for “Living Wealthy” and “Borderline”, along comes the third musical chapter, entitled, “ESU on The Left”.
There’s only one word to describe it and that is: WOW! In this beautifully made single, WolfHawkJaguar brings us a whole new musical world. He inspires our much gentler side and allows us to take on a whole new approach to music and spirituality. He redefines the basic world-music groove, adding a dimension of spirituality which is extremely tangible from the opening bars of “ESU on The Left”.
This track is a quite unique composition for our ears, yet vaguely familiar to our souls right from the very first listen. Here WolfHawkJaguar adds a polished up melody along with a beautiful ambient background accompaniment, tight intricate and captivating cross-rhythms on percussion, and a steady bassline, not to mention the lovely emotional mix of low and high voices.
It is very beautiful and relaxing but yet remains a deeply emotional experience, as with all of WolfHawkJaguar tracks. He uses rhythmic structures and melodic textures that are complex but appear simple to the non-trained ear, making the track so amazingly catchy you will want to have it on constant replay, as you sing-along to the lyrics:
“Open up and let The Most High come through, Come through us, Come through me, Come through you, Bless it!!, Bless It!!”
Elegant and passionate, WolfHawkJaguar delivers his uplifting lyrics in a graceful emotive voice that moves in tuneful whispers and spoken words, resulting in pure ear-candy that reaches right down to the soul. The melody, sounds and rhythms, layered throughout this musical piece, bring you in and transport you on a musical journey that WolfHawkJaguar has prepared long before, from the outset of his personal quest – which is to take people ‘from the life they know, to the life they want’.
And if that sounds too deep for you, then just stick to the music and video for “ESU on The Left”, which by itself, will make you feel you have finally found that something you had been searching for!
