Boddhi Satva, DJ Satelite & Fredy Massamba are Portrayed as Beautiful Women in this Genre-Bending Video for ‘Xe Mana Bella’

Watch the music video for Boddhi Satva, DJ Satelite and Fredy Massamba's new afro-house joint "Xe Mana Bella."

“Xe Mana Bella” is an afro-house joint tailor-made for late nights on the dance floor.


The track is built on seamless beat work from ‘Ancestral Soul’ producer Boddhi Satva and Angola’s DJ Satelite, with Congolese vocalist Fredy Massamba laying down the song’s refrain.

The music video for “Xe Mana Bella” follows three women impersonating Boddhi Satva, Dj Satelite and Fredy Massamba—one strolls through Lisbon, the other sings on the street and the last one throws down a beach DJ set at Portugal's Praia do Rei.

“Xe Mana Bella surely has been one of the great sensation of this summer. Shaking the dance floors of cities like Lisbon, Luanda, Baltimore, New York, London and Paris to name a few,” Boddhi Satva mentions.

“The anthem's video was done by the talented Johel Almeida from Afro Digital. Due to busy schedules, Fredy Massamba couldn't attend the recording in Lisbon, but his voice and energy is a truly felt throughout the song. The video, mostly shot in slow motion. gives the viewer the opportunity to fully indulge in the beauty of the cast, the dancers, the city of Lisbon and the lovely beach and sunset of Praia do Rei," he says.

Earlier this year, Boddhi Satva collaborated with Badi on a music video that confronted tradition and colonization through dance.

DJ Satelite recently shared an Angolan house mixtape for his label, Seres Produções new compilation, Muloje.
