Pa Salieu 'Mista/Lennon Freestyle' by Mickey Voak

Promonews - 24th Aug 2022

One of the pivotal young British voices today, Pa Salieu's new freestyles Mista and Lennon are accompanied by a visual directed by Mickey Voak and shot by Thomas English, outside the court where he was recently on trial.

The video, filmed outside of Warwickshire Combined Court, sees the young Midlands musician depict his frustrations with the court system and the personal impact that the passage of time has had on him. Pa’s best friend Fidel Glasgow was murdered during the incident back in 2018 but no one has been charged with this offence. This video was produced and shot with less than 48 hours notice and sees Pa express himself through a powerful performance.

The video is comprised of two separate scenes, shot solely in black and white. The first a gritty guerrilla down-the-barrel one-shot captures Pa’s raw emotions and heartfelt sentiments. The second, shot inside a moving vehicle, captures Pa in a pensive and reflective state as he his driven away from the courtroom.

Given the nature of the shoot, Voak, English and the production team at Stadium were working through the various challenges and time pressures. But the combination of the location and Pa Salieu's lyrics make for a absorbing four minutes of unfiltered performance captured in this gripping visual.
