Batida’s Heartwarming ‘Céu’ Video Follows The Story Of A Child Astronaut

Angolan-Portuguese producer Batida shares his new music video for “Céu” featuring François & the Atlas Mountains.


Angolan-Portuguese producer Batida aka Pedro Coquenão has been a busy man lately, releasing an album with Konono N°1 and fighting for social justice and the freedom of 16 detained young activists in Angola.

The producer is now sharing his latest music video for “Céu,” a track that was originally meant to be a remix of French-British pop group François & the Atlas Mountains.

Batida mentions that the song is “about dreaming awake, losing your ground and dealing with it the most positive way to be able to keep dreaming. It’s about lost and transformation.”

Watch the heartwarming music video for “Céu,” directed by Vasco Vala, below.

Catch Batida live on August 14 at Okayafrica’s NYC SummerStage show alongside Mbongwana Star and Young Paris and on his upcoming tour dates.

Tanzanian star Diamond Platnumz features on Alicia Keys' latest album titled, ALICIA.

Platnumz' influence is clear as the song, titled "Wasted Energy," is a far cry from what is usually expected from the "If I Ain't Got You" singer.

Taking cues and influence from reggae, afropop and the bongo flava that the Tanzanian star is known for, "Wasted Energy" speaks of a lover in a relationship with someone who intentionally ignores their needs and desires.
