From beginning to end, ‘Grandmother’ is a totally mesmerizing piece of gold, an earworm that’s welcome to stay from New Zealand’s Electric Blue Witch-Hop Producer, Estére.
Written for her grandmother whom she’d never met, but is named after, Estére sings: “they say we’re two and one”. The clip follows the two characters as they wander the same land, in Cape Town South Africa, though never meeting. The grandmother is played by the legendary author, UN women’s ambassador and human rights activist Sindiwe Magona.
You’ll find yourself swimming in the strange magic of the music, and mystery of ancestry with this one.
