Video: Hosanna Sophia – “Babada”

 

You know, Facebook stalking can be quite lucrative. Initially, our timeline led us back to our girl Zebi Williams’ page in regards to a promo video for her super dope non-profit youth program in Jamaica called Lil Ragamuffin Summer Camp. We already got staff members plotting to get on board for future years – please do check out and support!

And it was from there that we landed on a video for a gorgeous song called “Babada” by Zebi’s gal Hosanna Sophia. The dreamy aerial video is backed by an Alice Coltrane track and sparse but haunting and eerily soothing vocals by miss Hosanna. Word is that she has an album coming out soon as well. Looking forward to hearing more!

French producer Astrobal (Emmanuel Mario) cites an array of influences ranging from Neil Young to Kraftwerk. The Discovery Channel style video for “Poetry & Science Fiction” provides a low-key backdrop to the soothingly hypnotic ambient track.

A welcome journey through space and time on this Thursday afternoon, we’d say. A little vacation to the moon never hurt anybody.

Video: Saidah Baba Talibah – “Revolution”

Our girl Saidah Baba Talibah does androgynous-chic so well. Her new sassy tune and ferocious video for the jazzy, funky, and soulful “Revolution” has us doing an uncontainable bounce in our seats.

The lyrics aren’t for the faint of heart, either – this chick knows what she wants and she’s prepared to create her own reality. As she says it, the song is a “collection of dreams, daydreams and realities, that speak from a place of fierceness, vulnerability, insecurity and assuredness.”
