Faisal Chaudhuri's visual for the opening track from the debut EP by Niwemang - a producer and writer duo who draw on Persian and Pakistani roots to create music which fuses spoken word with traditional spiritual and electronic sounds - reflects upon the meaning of Yeksui, a Sufi term for concentration and stillness.

It's a profile of the identity and memories of a young British Pakistani man in the streets of Northwest London, providing a snapshot of everyday inner city life, framed through the lens of people who have their roots elsewhere. The combination of voice and pictures focusses on the importance of stillness for contemplation and introspection, as a pathway to wellbeing.
