AKUA NARU - My Mother's Daughter (Official Video)

Stream or buy at WHEN THE JOY COMES-TOUR tickets: "My Mother’s Daughter" is the first single release off Akua Naru’s third and forthcoming studio album "...The Blackest Joy" (Spring 2018). The song, at times dark and mystical, at others bright and full of hope, is a rich narrative of black womanhood, agency, West African spirituality, lineage, and sisterhood. With West African influences, as evidenced by the song's introduction and its additional vocals (spoken & sung completely in Mina), Naru, once again, merges genres along the black music tradition and glides effortlessly between soul, jazz, and hip-hop. Filmed in Lome, Togo, West Africa and directed by Hamburg based artist Joachim Zunke, the video, to be continued, highlights Akua Naru, the mystic/ the traveler, and documents the marriage of her inner and outer worlds. A visual homage to black womanhood on the African continent and in the diaspora. ---Deutsch--- "My Mother's Daughter" ist die erste Single aus Akua Narus drittem Album "…The Blackest Joy", das im Frühling 2018 erscheint. Der Song ist mystisch und zugleich hell und hoffnungsvoll. Er erzählt eine Geschichte über schwarze Weiblichkeit und westafrikanische Spiritualität. Letztere spiegelt sich auch in der Musik, im Intro und den Vocals, komplett in Mina vorgetragen. Akua Naru’s Hip Hop Musik ist zeitlos und repräsentiert den Reichtum und die Schönheit afro-amerikanischer Tradition und Kultur. Der Hamburger Regisseur Joachim Zunke hat das Video in Lomé in Togo/Westafrika gedreht. Es stellt Akua Naru als Mystikerin und Wanderin dar und lässt ihre inneren und äußeren Welten verschmelzen: eine visuelle Hommage an afrikanische Weiblichkeit in Afrika und der Diaspora. ---Francais--- "My Mother's Daughter" est le premier single du troisième album d'Akua Naru "... The Blackest Joy" (Printemps 2018). La chanson, tantôt sombre et mystique, tantôt brillante et pleine d'espoir, est un riche récit de féminité noire, de spiritualité d'Afrique de l'Ouest, de lignage et de fraternité. A l’origine, influencé par un chant d'Afrique de l'Ouest, comme en témoigne l'introduction de la chanson et des voix supplémentaires (parlé et chanté complètement en Mina), akua naru fusionne encore les genres de la musique traditionnelle africaine au jazz et au hip-hop. Filmée à Lomé au Togo (Afrique de l'Ouest), réalisée par Joachim Zunke, et produite par Elom 20ce et Jahëna Louisin, cette vidéo est la première d’une série. Elle met en lumière Akua Naru, le mystique / le voyageur : un hommage visuel à la féminité noire sur le continent africain et dans la diaspora. VISIT AKUA NARU: FACEBOOK: INSTAGRAM: TWITTER:

OSHUN - Graduate (Official Video)

Written by OSHUN & Jonah Best Directed by Jonah Best Edited by Lagan Sebert Makeup by Raisa Flowers “Graduate” takes us through OSHUN’s grander visions for themselves and the world, while grounding us in the sometimes-exhausting reality of senior capstones and sixty-page theses. In this new anthem, OSHUN pays homage to those who paved the way for them to finish school — the Ancestors and Elders who dreamt them there, the scholarships that funded them, and the borough that nurtured them throughout the journey (BROOKLYN!)

Flamingods - Anya [Official Music Video]

Tickets for Flamingods at Jazz Café, London on Tues 3 October here: Buy ‘Majesty’ here: The video was directed and produced by Barcelona based production house Shooting Gallery and sprouted from a trip to Barcelona last summer where we were set to play BAM Festival. Joe from SG saw we were coming to town and figured it was the perfect opportunity to collaborate as we loved each others work. Anya as a track was deeply inspired by the exotica movement of the 50s and the imagery that surrounds it and so Joe (also an admirer of the genre), decided to film the music video at the Mossèn Costa i Llobera Gardens; a beautiful botanical space which houses an array of tropical cacti and plants. The environment was perfectly apt for the song and the weather was wonderfully hot with the sun beaming out full force through-out the filming. The idea was to get us performing in the gardens whilst being flocked by pair of flamingos performing a mating dance and alluring us into the exotic through a mirage of hypnotic movements. The beautiful tones and colours were captured with special aerochrome filter lens the team picked up from their travels and gives the video an almost tropical noir feel Produced and Directed by Flamingirls: Anna Macau Comella and Sanna Toivanen Costume Design: Rachel Alexandra Maclachlan Font: Raimund Wong
