Major Lazer ft. Babes Wodumo & Taranchyla 'Orkant/Balance Pon It' by Adriaan Louw
The second of four films directed by Adriaan Louw for Major Lazer's latest EP - each film filmed in a different African country, with the contributions of local artists and dancers - is for Orkant/Balance Pon It, and shot in Durban, South Africa.
As with the rest of the project, its a combination of structured scenes and pure documentary. And it was shot in Durban, far less visible to the outside world than Johannesburg or Cape Town, due to its importance in the origins of Gqom – the biggest dance music craze in South Africa at the moment – which inspired the song Balance Pon It. And the video features Babes Wodumo, considered the Queen of Gqom.
