Video: Art Melody 'L'eben Est Dans Le Noir'

[embed width="560"][/embed]


New found-footage clip from innovative Burkinabé rapper Art Melody for "L'eben Est Dans Le Noir." The piano-looped track, produced by frequent beat collaborator Redrum, has an uneasy yet luring nature that's only doubled by the early cartoon representations of Africans used for the video. The song's title roughly translates to the ebony is in the dark — inspired by Sarkozy's infamous speech in Dakar in which the French president stated that Africa is "outside" history. Art Melody’s Zound Zandé LP is available now on iTunes.
