Zimbabwe’s Gemma Griffiths releases ‘Ndinewe’ her brand new single – live across all digital streaming platforms today. Produced by friend and sometimes collaborater – Charlie Kay, the track is her open love letter to the continent.
The stunning visuals are the result of a 500 day journey across Africa, to write her debut album. Gemma and filmmaker Marc Neilson, drove over 24,000 km through 10 different countries, with a studio and all their instruments in a Landrover Defender. The trip spread over 18 months, where they lived in the vehicle, meeting musicians and connecting with them. This is where Gemma wrote and recorded her upcoming album.
From the impenetrable forest of Bwindi, Uganda, to the Tanzanian mountains, the Mozambican Archipelago islands, and the Namibian desert, this journey of two artists and a vision is nothing short of spectacular.
Now, on day 500 – the release of “Ndinewe” showcases footage from 10 countries and an introduction into the journey itself.
