Oumou Sangare - Yere faga Music Video

My newest music video for the iconic Malian artist Oumou Sangaré is out. The video takes on a performance driven journey driven by the lyrics of the track Yere Faga, which take into question the challenges of the youth of today. Using herself as a metaphor Oumou sings about her own challenges as a young women in Mali, the discrimination she endured and how she came out victorious through perseverance.

Manthe Ribane - La Vilette Paris

Got a chance to shoot some images with my fellow performing artist Manthe Ribane in Paris this weekend. For the past two years OKZHARP, Manthe and I have been touring together as a trio of performance, music and visuals. Last week we had the chance to perform at both the prestigious La Villette & during the Salone de Mobile in Milan at the Apollo Club. Great and memorable times!
