Ifi Ude – My Baby Gone
Again, I’m constantly amazed by the type of music I find when I least expect it. This time it comes from Poland by way of Nigeria. Ifi Ude has a different sort of voice, a voice that forces you to take notice. The striking video for My Baby Gone further intensifies the stark contrast in style and concept from any other artist.
Because I don’t speak Polish and that’s pretty much what the description is in, I had to parse what I believed to be the relevant information. What I can tell you, however, is that there are very few videos I’ve seen that are as gorgeous as this.
