Pongo 'Uwa' by Lou Escobar
Pongo celebrates contemporary African culture in director Lou Escobar's vibrant vision for Uwa.
Already an in-demand photographer and filmmaker, this is Escobar's debut music video project, which sees Pongo return to the continent for the first time since she fled Angola with her parents during the civil war.
The video charges full-speed ahead, switching from frenetic choreography on the street to calm and deliberate movement in the river, radiating an almost meditative energy. This is a celebration of overcoming adversity and living life to the fullest, with sweeping steadicam shots and beautiful portraits of individual characters.
Jon Echeveste's quickfire edit oscillates between street and club scenes, building to a crescendo of high-energy dance and perpetual partying. A very well-made video that matches a great concept with an authentic and emotional experience.
