Dutty Artz is proud to present the music video for Kondi Band’s “Titi Dem Too Service.”
The video is a pseudo-documentary, directed by Jace Clayton (DJ /rupture),Â depictingÂ his and Chief Boima’s visit to Hong Kong in 2014. Shot by Tommy Wing Tsang and edited by Dutty Artz member MPeach, the videoÂ has at its center theÂ story of the journeyÂ of a real money transfer between band members Chief Boima and Sorie Kondi. The video aims toÂ highlightÂ some of theÂ difficulties inÂ international collaboration, globalÂ mobilityÂ and navigating capitalism. With the bustling Asian capital as backdrop, it is also a meditation on the shifting centers of economic and political power in the Global South, and an illustration of the realities of the International Black experience.
Kondi Band’s debut album Salone is out this Friday June 2nd!Â You can preview it now streaming on Noisey, and order a CD, Vinyl, or digital copy viaÂ iTunesÂ andÂ Bandcamp!
Kondi Band is also on tour now in Europe, and hopefullyÂ coming to an area near you some timeÂ in 2017!
