In The Castle of My Skin // Sons of Kemet

Afrofuturistic British jazz group Sons Of Kemet recently enlisted South African filmmaker Lebogang Rasethaba to direct the snazziest dance visuals we’ve seen all year for the track “In The Castle of My Skin” (which takes its name from Barbadian author George Lamming’s 1953 novel about post-colonial identity).

Shot in the Johannesburg township of Tembisa, the clip adds a philharmonic spin to South Africa’s pantsula dance video phenomenon– of which Basement Jaxx,Skrillex, and Friend Within have all caught on in recent years (Beyoncé‘s 2011 “Run The World (Girls)” video features a variation of the dance).
