Music Monday: Blood Orange ‘Chamakay’

Monday 23 September 2013
Words Lizzie

Every Monday we’re going to showcase a music video we love, be it old or new. This week, check out the awesome video from Dev Hynes, aka Blood Orange, with guest vocals from Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek.

The video was directed by Adam Bainbridge of Kindness fame, and filmed on Dev’s trip to Guyana, where he met his 92-year old grandfather for the first time.

Dev on the making of the video for ‘Chamakay’:
“I decided to visit Georgetown, Guyana for the first time, the town where my mother is from. She, herself has not been back for 30 years, 3 years before I was born. I tracked down family members, including my 92 year old grandfather, who I had never met before. In this video you will see our first ever meeting. The wonderful female vocals on this track are performed by Caroline Polachek from the band Chairlift. Special thanks to Yulandi, Tyrese Gomes, Samantha Urbani, The Crandons & Adam Bainbridge.”

This is the first single from the forthcoming album, ‘Cupid Deluxe’.
