After a restless debut EP released last year, French-Congolese project TSHEGUE is back with as intense video shot in the Ivory Coast.
The project is fronted by Faty Sy Savanet, who was born in D.R. Congo’s capital Kinshasa, but spent most of her life in Paris – but clearly with an outlook to the rhythms and sounds of Africa. In SHEGUE, she’s accompanied by French-Cuban producer Nicolas Dacunha, who’ve added another hemisphere of inspirations.
In 2017, TSHEGUE offered us their debut EP called “Survivor“, which included just four short tracks but its intensity could make it feel like you’ve heard a solid full-length. And now we have been reminded of this album with the official video for the last and longest song on that release called “Muanapoto”.
Filmed in Abidjan, the capital city of The Ivory Coast, the clip “tracks a profoundly deaf and mute young girl negotiating her way out of a world devoid of sound”. Fasten your seatbelts, and join the trance.
