Wildones – Mwanjé ft. Sampa the Great

 

A cosmic coming of age story

 

Celebrating the Afrofuturist artists Mwanjé featuring her sister Sampa the Great’s masterpiece of art

Honouring African culture and history with inspiration from the future.

These brilliant young artists use poetry, visuals, intention and the art of

music in grasping our souls through this amazing hypnotic track.

 

     

 

The music sets the tone for future music innovation where

this single explores African traditional culture with technoculture and

science fiction through showcasing African Diaspora along with history, science and aesthetics.

 

Mwanjé and Sampa the Great successfully created a single that transports us

through time and space. It’s conveyed through strong imagery on the contrast

between youth and wisdom. The intention behind the single is to

express personal freedom.

The behind-the-scenes was full of technicalities and logistics that was

executed remarkably and to see that being realised when

everything was challenging during such a difficult time.

 

         

 

Mwanjé and Sampa the Great are true inspirations for resembling

a culture of music that goes beyond the borders and limits of today’s music.

They create a space where the viewer transforms and transitions with them.

 

 

It was a blast collaborating with these amazing young artists.

We cannot wait for all the amazing work that they will do in the future,

since they are truly an inspiration for futuristic and innovative music

and it’s certain that they will set the bar for so many artists

from Africa by breaking the status quo.
