Released today, the video comes shortly after Jah9’s mini Brazil tour which wrapped up on January 7th. Prior to that, she completed a brief Northeast American tour with stops in Boston, New York and Vermont. Filmed in São Paulo, Brazil by director Premier King, the video features Jah9 in various parts of the city with an all-female crew. Additional footage was shot in California by All Eyes On It. Reggae marvel Chronixx, who is currently nominated for a Grammy for Best Reggae album joins Jah9 in the primary scene atop a city rooftop. The video features a combination of soft, vibrant nature backdrops integrated with the gritty elements of the streets, emphasizing the melodic yet brazen energy of the song. “It was a long awaited pleasure for me to make my first visit to South America and Brazil,” said Jah9. This has been calling to me for some time now and I was honored to connect with so many beautiful spirits and have the opportunity to work with some of the best local talent.” On meeting the director, Jah9 states, “we were fans of his work before we met him so when Premier King reached out about collaborating in Brazil it was just a matter of what song to choose. We are very happy with product of this collaboration and with all the seeds we were able to plant in Brazil.

Héctor Guerra - "Vida" ft. Mariel Mariel (Video Oficial)

"Un día le preguntaron a un chamán..."Abuelo, ¿Por qué géneros como el reggaetón triunfan tanto?" El abuelo les contestó, "A ver, pongan un poco d esa música quiero escucharla..."Tras unos minutos escuchando varias canciones de reggaetón, el abuelo contestó: "Claro que esa música tiene mucho éxito, porque trae el tambor de África, por eso a las mujeres les gusta tanto, porque con ese tambor viene la danza, está en la historia de nuestro ADN. Es música que hace bailar y eleva la frecuencia a través de la danza, sería interesante hacer una letra que también eleve la frecuencia, tal vez puedan hablar de que estamos vivos un día mas y que tenemos que escuchar a nuestro corazón."

Khruangbin - Friday Morning (Official Video)

Order album: Friday Morning is a love song, written and recorded at the remote farm in Burton, Texas where Khruangbin got its start. To commemorate the song, the band asked their closest friends and family to record messages of love to each band member. The music video is a portrait of the band hearing these audio recordings for the first time, capturing on film the emotions one feels when they hear just how loved they are; a poignant and heartfelt expression in a time where, as a collective whole, we need to hear and express love more than ever.

📺 Papa Style Ft. Flavia Coelho - Esperança [Official Video]

Suscribe : Album Turbulent disponible : CD : Lyrics : Esperança Viens avec nous on t'invite a repeindre les couleurs du monde. A base de love ! Il illumine toutes les gares qu'il traverse avec toutes ses couleurs. Venus du monde entier,sur ses parois s'expriment les grapheurs. Sur le toit de la loco un énorme ghetto-blaster. Dans les wagons on partage nos places et nos valeurs. Tout au long du voyage il propage l'amour et l'espoir. T'as 10 minutes pour take tes bagages ! Tu parts ce soir. Oublies ce monde de dingue.Abandonnes tout stress, t'es déjà a bord du Flavia and Papa style Express ! Avec mon Âme pas de fraude,Je suis le contrôleur de ma vie. Ma conscience a un billet avec validité infinie. J' écoute les anciens chauffeurs de locomotive. Mais je vais la ou mes rêves les plus locos me motivent. Le voyage et sans arrêt ni station imposée. La ou il y a des différences il est prévu de nous déposer. Pourquoi l'inconnue devrait nous opposer ? J'ai toujours osé aller vers les autres et composer. Tandis que les cyniques restent a quai. Je trace au taquet L'espoir mon seul braquet. Aux bonnes ondes je suis maqué. Je serais toujours au départ vers l'avenir. En provenance de la ou rayonnent les sourires. Ton monde qui déraille je te le laisse. Même si tu le nourries le loup n'accepte pas la laisse. Toi qui au lieux de vivre, existes dans le stress. Saches que mon or ne brille pas , il rayonnent de jeunesse. Ton barda de bassesses écartes ça de mon chemin le serpent change de mue mais change pas de venin Et n'oublies pas de dire a a ta haine Que les routes me rendent ce que les jours me prennent.

Soothsayers - Dis & Dat (Official Video)

Soothsayers - Tradition : Out NOW on Wah Wah 45s ! Order vinyl or digital: Subscribe to our channel: Director/Editor - Vasilisa Forbes DOP - Ezequiel Garcia Romero Gaffer - Giovanni Mattei AC - Charlotte Maxwell Actors: Girl - Ailsa Hatchett Boy - Elijah Clarke Following on from the success of their first EP and its subsequent remix project on Wah Wah 45s, South London Afro-dub warriors Soothayers deliver the first offering from their forthcoming album, Tradition, out now. “Dis Cant be right, Dat can’t be right“ is the chorus response on new single, Dis & Dat. So, how long is this song you might wonder as in 2018 there seems to be so many things that sit at odds with each other that verses could go on for an eternity. However, Soothsayers list of issues is succinct - Dis & Dat is not a lesson in politics or socio-economics, but rather a song aimed at bringing us together and something we could all sing if No. 45 (we can’t say his name) ever dares to visit our shores, or at any event where a current Government minister is the main attraction. Quotes from two Jamaican greats - “Sharpen the small axe, cut the big tree, the hotter the battle, the sweeter the victory“ - reignite hope in the power of human action and resistance via some uplifting big Afro grooves, Soothsayers style. Remixes on this vibrant new singles come from erstwhile Fila Brazillia legend Steve Cobby who comes up with a trademark mid-tempo four-to-the-floor dub-infused stomper; while young gun and rising star, Ben Hauke, conjures up a foot friendly, percussive broken latin gem a la 4-Hero that’s already doing lots of business on the dance floor. Dis & Dat is released on February 9th both digitally and on hand-stamped 12”, limited to just 100 copies, also featuring the SMBD Warrior Dub of Blinded Souls, on vinyl for the very first time. Previous radio support comes from Tom Ravenscroft, Huey Morgan and Craig Charles on BBC 6Music, as well as David Rodigan and Jazzie B. Soothsayers will be celebrating this release with a unique full live show at The Jazz Café in London on Friday February 9th, alongside sets from Ben Romans-Hopcraft (of Childhood fame) and Miles Wu-Lu, the twin sons of frontman Robin Hopcraft.
