The opening track to K'NAAN's socially conscious Troubadour (A&M/Octone), "T.I.A." now has a stunning collage of visual effects to enhance its message. Directed by NABIL (the man responsible for Kanye's "Welcome To Heartbreak" video), the partially animated clip depicts K'NAAN in a Made In Africa t-shirt, against a highly stylized backdrop of traditional garb, AK's, handguns, grassland savannas, head sculptures and a kaleidescope of flag colors and currency from the motherland. This is Africa.
