Sinkane is an artist with a real stake in our current cultural and political climate. Born in London to Sudanese parents, raised in Ohio, and now calling New York City home, the former skate punk turned afro funk whiz Ahmed Gallab refines his sound and message to peak form on his seventh studio album, Dépaysé, set for release on May 31st, 2019 via City Slang. Dépaysé — French for “to be removed from one’s habitual surroundings” — is today introduced with a video for anthemic first single „Everybody,“ directed by Bruno Ferreira.
Filmed at Brazil’s world renowned samba school in Rio de Janeiro, Escola de Samba Paraíso do Tuiuti, the new video stars its local performers and is a testimony to the power of passion and dancing to overcome repression. Gallab says „Everybody“ is “dedicated to the brave men, women and children fighting against oppression in places like Brazil, Sudan, and all over the world #تسقط_بس”
