Water Is Life, O! by Evan Ifekoya

Water is Life, O!  marked the end of Evan Ifekoya's month-long Lagos residency at G.A.S. Foundation.⁠ Ifekoya's sonic offering featured a compositional cocktail of sounds from Ifekoya's residency; voiceovers from mundane and intentional encounters from across the city were masterfully layered with marine acoustics from Lagos' lagoons, various beaches across the city, Osun Oshogbo sacred grove, and the point of no return; Badagry's infamous former slave trade port. Voices wove in and out of the baseline sound, varying between melodic and cacophonous, punctuated only by clear, piercing, yet haunting tones from the artist's crystallophones.
