Benjamin Verdoes (formerly of Mt. Saint Helens Vietnam Band, and half of Iska Dhaaf) released a solo album at the beginning of the year called “The Evil Eye” and I’m excited to premiere the first video from the album.
“So Bari” is sung entirely in Somali and the video, directed by Tristan Seniuk, feels very much like a play as it features a series of tableaus of an imaginary place. Some nice art direction here; they did a lot with very little. Watch the video below!
