“We aimed to capture the Djembe Monks organic, live performance energy while conveying a narrative inspired by an ancient Zimbabwean tradition and exploring its relevance in the modern world.” – @kalai_faye_barlow (Producer & Director)
This music video/short film is a visual manifestation of Djembe Monks combination of ethnic & electronic sound and is motivated by the groups passion for dance. The concept touches on the global water crisis and draws inspiration from a traditional rain-dance performed by the baKalanga people from Botswana and Western Zimbabwe. Rooted in traditional Zimbabwean Mythology & folklore and interwoven with contemporary elements.
This experimental, movement piece takes us on the journey of the calling of the ‘iwosana’ (a chosen medium) who is a communicator for the god Mwali and the ancestors.
RAINMAKER OUT NOW‼️
