Sam Turpin Shares Stunning Video for ‘Sahara Flow’

Watch Sam Turpin's music video for 'Sahara Flow.'

Left-field South African rapper Sam Turpin recently teamed up with filmmaker Katya Abedian for a music video for the rapper's 2019 single "Sahara Flow."

The visual are stunning, showing four models showcasing their awesomeness to a backdrop of healthy flora and, in other scenes, a desert.


"Essentially the song is a metaphor for a spiritual journey that I've been on since I became an artist," Sam Turpin told nataal.com last week. "After I lost my mother in 2011, I had to confront the world and my mind and soul were bombarded with the typical 'Where am I going in this life?' questions. I approached Katya because I loved her work and I knew that she would be the right person to explore this metaphor in a way that shows all the beauty and reality that we may find in this world and beyond."

Abedian told the same publication:

"It was important to me to highlight the unique strength, beauty and presence of each female character and the contribution they bring to the story of Sam's character. 'Sahara Flow' is a soul's journey, protected and guided by spirits that are no longer confined to this earth nor blinded by its distractions. They reflect the higher wisdom that there is no beginning nor end to the journey of our souls, only greater depths and stages of learning, understanding and sensitivity."
