Iru Ekpunobi Portrait Image.

Iru Ekpunobi is a deep listener, DJ, and audiofuturist. A recent graduate of New York University, Iru began their journey in FM radio as an DJ and show host at WNYU 89.1, where they synthesized Black musicology, revolutionary history, and futurist transmission on a weekly, 90 minute broadcast. Culminating in their undergraduate thesis, Iru launched Third Space Radio, a digital media project and community radio station exploring sonic transmission as a ‘third place’ where community, education, and love can persist.

Currently, Iru is re-establishing their identity independent of academic institutions, researching percussion as communication throughout the Black sonic diaspora and working as a podcast producer.
