Daily Discovery: ESINAM – NEW DAWN feat. Nadeem Din-Gabisi (Official Video)

Enjoy ‘New Dawn’, the new song (and video) by Brussels-based Belgian-Ghanaian multi-instrumentalist Esinam featuring London-based artist Nadeem Din​​-​​Gabisi.
 
The track, which is also the first single extracted from Esinam upcoming debut LP (WERF Records), is “inspired by Ghanaian afrobeat and results in a mix of Afro-urban-flute-jazz: the power of rhythm and percussion is combined with a poppy melody that draws from underground soul music”: https://esinam.bandcamp.com/album/esinam
 
About the video the musician said, “The clip starts in Jamestown (Accra), the heart of the old city. There are scenes shot in the Volta Region as well, which is close to my grand parents’ village. It was important for me to make a video there and add some symbolic and picturesque imagery: the family portrait in our house, sisterhood, the red ground, the river, the sunset, … It all invites us to other visions, linked to imagination and poetry.” (Esinam)
