WATCH | Pierre Kwenders Drops Visuals For His Catchy Tune "Sexus Plexus Nexus"
You'll dig this.
Pierre Kwenders offers us pure gold with the heritage of a modern Africa in which Congolese Rumba is showcased at the forefront. His music is a seamless blend of new wave world music, rumba trap and indie afro: which is refreshing to say the least.
The Afro-Canadian singer-songwriter just recently unveiled the music video for "Sexus Plexus Nexus" off his sophomore album, MAKANDA at The End of Space, the Beginning of Time, due out on September 8th via Bonsound. The song gives us a party-vibe with some R&B influences as well as old-school style 808-sounding synths and riffs thrown in to set a nostalgic mood.
Directed by duo Epher Heilland, the video is a true musical celebration, as Pierre explains:
The idea was to recreate the ambience and dances in Kinshasa. The vibe of a street fair where you go with your family to celebrate until the wee hours. Listening to the song and partying, you never want it to end, all that celebration of love.
Pierre Kwenders will hit the road again this summer for a tour throughout Quebec and the rest of Canada. Watch the video above anc check out the tour dates after the jump.
