Ian Kamau - Black Bodies

See video
Black Bodies immediately demands your attention, as the percussive beat mixes with soulful vocal notes by Toronto poet Ian Kamau.

Beyond the sonic realm, the short film directed by RT! to accompany the track is striking. A visual narrative on life in Toronto projected in black and white tones, a story of struggle in contemporary Toronto.

Kamau creates seriously soulful, genre-bending music and released the critically acclaimed One Day Soon last year. Since 2003 Kamau has been breaking new ground in the indie hip-hop world, and has made significant mixtapes and podcasts, while also collaborating with both K-os and Shad.
 
Cinema Politica will be co-presenting a Howl! arts concert in Montreal on June 21 featuring Kamau. Full event info here.
