Audio: Portformat “Mothership” feat. Dudley Perkins & Georgia Anne Muldrow

Every time I visit my folks in Southern Germany, I meet up with Portformat (Ibrahim M’Bodji), a music producer with Senegalese and German roots, whom I have known for almost four years. I remember very well when he told me that he was going to have a feature with Dudley Perkins and Georgia Anne Muldrow on his debut album, titledThe Repeat Factor. I knew that it was going to be a banger back then, but when he played the song for me the first time I was thrilled. Give it a listen below.

It is one of the most powerful tools used in changing the way in which the West perceives Africa and its diaspora and perhaps the reason why contemporary photography is thriving.
