Michael Brun & Shirazee's Acoustic Version of 'Soweto' Will Soothe Your Thursday
Premiering on OkayAfrica, watch the dynamic duo croon a love letter to the South African city.
Haitian-born artist Michael Brun links up with Beninese Afrosoul artist Shirazee for an acoustic version of their melodic house hit, "Soweto."
This stripped down version was recorded in Brun's new home of Brooklyn, giving us a smooth, soulful rhythmic cut with a languid, late-afternoon vibe. "Soweto" is Shirazee's love letter to a city that he spent a lot of time in growing up—a raspy serenade to a city whose beat enchanted him.
Take a look below.
We hope to see more collaborations between the duo, as Brun continues to be the face of the new generation of Haitian artists pushing a contemporary sound forward. Shirazee is still one to watch—revisit his newest single "Make Wild" to get familiar.
