Following the release of widely lauded new album “Fabiola”, London-based global beat pioneers Da Lata have now launched a new video to accompany track “Unknown”, which marries Mayra Andrade’s beguiling vocals to an ace string arrangement from Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, making it the most cinematic song of the album, that cried out for a visual interpretation.
The video for “Unknown” was conceived by Da Lata main man Chris Franck and dancer/choreographer/film-maker Wayne James. Featuring three dancers and a small white T.V.; it’s an abstract journey that is as much about discovery as it loss, beginnings as much as endings. Sidestepping the clichés, there are no sunsets or open vistas, instead a dark and brooding atmosphere is conjured from the prosaic urban landscape and the evocative cyphers of dance and movement.
“Fabiola” is out now on Agogo Records via CD/LP/Digital download
