All The Way Home

Bokanté

Bokanté‘s first single ‘All The Way Home’ from their sophomore album What Heat, available Sept 28th 2018 and Oct 5th 2018 in the US and France.

This video is set in three different continents —North America, Europe, and Asia— and was filmed in three nations encountering very turbulent political changes. The idea is not to represent the struggles of these countries specifically, but to show the ability of the individual to create change in society. In this case, a deposed dictator sits in shame as a citizen tells him the story of his own fall from power. Through a friend of mine who is a choreographer at the Alvin Ailey dance company in New York and the great Kardeş Türküler in Istanbul, we tried to convey this message through dance. Special thanks to Buse Yildirim, Pelin Opcin, and everyone at the Beykoz Shoe Factory for their generosity, and also to Fidi The Great.
