Thrilling emerging talent, Tshegue, today release the new video for their popular track 'Muanapoto' which has been lifted form the debut EP 'Survivor'. The popular project has already drawn the Paris-based, French-Congolese a large fan base, and it is clear to see that they are working hard towards developing their sound and reach even further!

The brand new visuals has been shot in Abidjan, the capital city of The Ivory Coast. The striking video harnesses the primal energy of Muanapoto's kinetic drumming loops, beneath the 'no-f*cks-given' attitude of Faty Sy Savanet's rhymes, which articulate a story of silence and isolation. We see Pantera direct an expertly constructed music video which shows a profoundly deaf and mute, young girl who is negotiating her way out of a world devoid of sound.
“From the moment we first heard ‘Muanapoto’ we knew we wanted to make something that did justice to its insane rhythm and trance feeling. ‘Muanapoto’ speaks for African immigrants in Europe who upon arrival are forced to deal with the unknown, surrounded by new customs, foreign languages, different food and climate, all of which can lead to feelings of alienation. ‘Muanapoto’ also feels like a release, a letting go, and that translates to the girl in our video, who feels the need to express something and is able to do so through dance and her body.” - Pantera on 'Muanapoto'
An expertly constructed piece of work from all involved, and we can't wait to see what the creative collective have lined up for the remainder of the year.
