The Okmalumkoolkat - All Black, Black Kat music video is a rerendering of South African cultural realities through the music of Smiso Zwane and visual direction of Chris Saunders. We enter a night ritual scene at an indoor swimming pool, the ritual based loosely on a Zulu cleansing ceremony, which is performed before a funeral to a male member of the family (A situation Smiso experienced as a child). We juxtapose this situation with the inclusion of South African modern sub-cultural influences experienced by the artist; these influences have manifested his modern sound and dance.
