'Nigerian artist Ibukun Sunday’s new “mini-album,” Mantra, is so massive and reverberant, it could fill a stadium, or at least a place of worship. The latter might be apt, as Sunday created these songs under the influence of early Hindu texts. Opener “Purport” thrills with big, church-organ-style chords, and somehow every track on Mantra evokes an equally-impressive sense of awe, from the stirring voices of “Culture of Knowledge” to the distant tremblings of “Avaśisyate” to the speaker-shaking noise of “Illusion.” Sunday has tapped into something so elemental in just 23 minutes that it feels like the earth’s core is within his grasp'. - Bandcamp Daily
'Lagos-based composer and violinist Ibukun Sunday knows a thing or two about using sound to free the mind'. - Ransom Note
