I just came back from La Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta (Colombia), look it up, beautiful and incredibly magical place, home to indigenous groups, the nest for cumbia, the vegetation, the birds, the weather, the ocean… in that setting my friend Christian Castagno has his incredible La Kaya Studio, there, we had the opportunity to get together and let our minds and creativity flow.
From the last session at La Kaya, this song El Ritmo was born, a happy champeta, in time to celebrate everything that is good about music and life and to dance on carnival season, now we want to share it with you all!

Here’s the video for my single Ain’t Nobody, for this I enlisted my pal Nico Stinghe as I love what he does and it was shot at his Anothersidewalk studio in Berlin.
The idea is simple and since once a friend told me the song reminded her of Neneh Cherry’s Buffalo Stance, I went that way with the styling.
Thanks to everyone who’s helped and I hope you enjoy it!
