Blowing tune by producer/vocalist/visual artist Zakee, also known as Zakee Kuduro, featuring spoken words by late Vinicius De Moraes, Brazilian poet and Bossa Nova interpreter, and the ethereal voice of Esay Mwamwaya. The video takes tribute to the animation film of the same name, “Dark Crystal”, by muppet-puppet legend Jim Henson. Zakee’s press info says his “goal is to present to the world a magnificent piece of work that somehow manages to surpass music that we hear of today, by allowing you to feel emotion and enter and another state of mind.” Exactly. It’s all about emotions here. Beautiful.
The Philly native Zakee is currently signed by Green Owl, also home of The Very Best. His productions are quite awesome – shifting between stuttering Kuduro sounds, atmospheric 80s Industrial sounds and everything you can imagine. Self-coined as Ku Ku BassHis debut album “Assimilations” should drop soon as it was already announced for the summer.
