New KASAI ALLSTARS music video:

The Large Bird, the Woman and the Baby (Khalab Remix)

The Kinshasa DRC collective pursues its productive streak: elected by numerous publications as one of the top albums of 2021, their acclaimed 4th album (Black Ants Always Fly Together, One Bangle Makes No Sound) was recently followed by the Black Ants Remixed EP, in which six diverse and equally exciting artists revisited tracks from the album.

Alongside reworks by Deerhoof, Ekiti Sound, Martin Meissonnier and Spooky-J & pq from Nihiloxica, the EP contains an eerie remix by Italian Afro-Futurist Khalab.
This is the track picked by the band for their 3rd music video: they were inspired by the supernatural atmosphere which, they felt, is a great illustration to the song’s tale of magic.

Conceived once again by Kasai Allstars’ guitarist & producer Mopero Mupemba, the video was shot in the midst of a forest near Kinshasa, and features vocalist Muambuyi, coming to grips with otherworldly creatures.

The video was directed by Ema Wanet, edited by Wanet and Mopero Mupemba, and post-produced by Simon Dehoux/Fromwhere
