I want to use this space to acknowledge the senseless murder of George Floyd and stand with everyone demanding justice, and peacefully protesting police brutality and systemic racism. We're putting everything on pause for the day. I realise this action alone will not bring about any substantial change so if you have any ideas about how best to use this platform to be an ally during this time, please email me directly: [email protected]

You can seek justice for George Floyd by signing any of these petitions:

Heavy Baile – “Ciranda” feat. Goes - BOOOOOOOM TV - A daily selection of the best short films, music videos, and animations.

Love the energy of this video for Heavy Baile’s track with Goes by London-based director Alex Tiernan of Old Man Taro. Based on a traditional rhythm from northeast Brazil, “Ciranda” follows a charming young cook who dances the day away. As Tiernan explains further:

“I wanted the film to have the whimsicality you find in Brazilian folk lyrics, and Brazilian songwriting has no better folk hero than the ‘malandro’. The image of the loveable scoundrel who shuns work and relies on his wits to sidestep authority has become a kind of national emblem in a country that is still deeply unequal. The premise to this dance video is pretty simple, but is really an expression of the spontaneity and unique genius of the malandro spirit.”
