Boddhi Satva & Nelson Freitas' 'Goofy' Video Will Transport You to the Dance Floor
Video Premiere: Central African Republic and Cape Verde connect for this highly-addictive and undulating production.
The track sees the Central African Republic producer, known for his 'Ancestral Soul' house style, connecting with the Cape Verdean singer for a highly-addictive and undulating production that will transport you to the dance floor.
The new music video for "Goofy," which we're premiering here today, was directed by the Lisbon-based duo Rafael Duarte and Iuri Policarpo was as shot at city spot Ferroviario. The striking dances were choreographed by Gigi and Sango, two figures in Portugal's afrobeats and Kizomba scene, with styling consultant Tekilla.
"When Boddhi played 'Goofy' for me, I loved the beat right away," Nelson Freitas tells OkayAfrica. "It's on some modern Kizomba/Afro-fusion. The whole process of the collaboration was really organic and we really worked hand-in-hand from the recording of the song to the video... It's definitely a nice summer track that will last the taste of time."
"Initially, we wanted to get Ty Dolla $ign on the record together with Nelson," Boddhi Satva explains, "but as usual, too many middlemen mess up the possibility for artists to connect and create. We then said to ourselves that it was a sign for us to just focus on Nelson rocking the song solo."
"The song is a serious piece that might lead people to make some babies (don't do it if you aren't sure and always wear protection) or spend their money on sushi in Miami... We hope you enjoy and spread the good vibe," Boddhi adds.
