Samito’s ‘Tiku La Hina’ Video Is A Beautiful Aerial Dance About Immigrant Identity
Mozambican producer Samito looks at a fragmented immigrant identity through the unlikely medium of aerial dance.
Samito’s “Tiku La Hina” was one of our favorite songs from last year. The track from the Montreal-based Mozambican singer & producer sees Samito dealing with and embracing a shifting identity caused by his move from Maputo and Cape Town to North America.
"'Tiku La Hina' is a monologue on a fragmented identity. It's me trying to reconcile my past with my present reality as a creator, in a new country,” he tells us.
“By bringing in performance art we hoped to go beyond music and expand the idea of a ‘fragmented identity.’"
