WATCH | Montreal's Strange Froots Release Music Video For "The Wanderer"
Watch out for Strange Froots.
We're talking about a Montréal trio of self-made, queer Black women under 25; producing their own beats, writing their own songs, designing their own art.
Strange Froots travelled to Dakar, Senegal last summer, to establish a connection between the different histories and cultures of hip-hop in the 2 countries, and what the ladies are doing in both realms. They successfully raised $4,500 on GoFundMe through their community to finance the trip, and were able to not only begin shooting their documentary on the social aspects of hip-hop in the diaspora, but one half of their music video for “The Wanderer”, which you can watch above
It's a song about the trials and tribulations of Black Americans, but more broadly what it means to be of the diaspora, holds special meaning to each of us, and we were faced with them during the trip. What it means to be first-generation African-American, what it means to be biracial, what it means to connect music, ancestry, and spirituality
The music video was directed by Malick Sy (Likma Prod) and Marie-Michèle Cyr and features great sceneries mixed with a touch of knowledge all encompassed by great music.
