We've been feverishly acquiring new skills at our HQ in Dalston! We've been piecing together this old Fela footage and learning how to do animation to bring you this rather nice vid with original music by Ogheno( http://www.myspace.com/ogheno.)

The music and Video are called Afrikanism.

We hope you like.

Cibelle in 'Lightworks'

I love this take on Raymond Scott's "Lightworks" and video by Cibelle.The singer's name is Sonja Khalecallon, and her band are Los Stroboscopious Luminous."Sonja Khalecallon is in fact one of the alter egos of Cibelle, the London-based tropical punkster.."

"Lightworks" is known to most of us by way of Jay Dilla sampling it for his track "Lightworks" which was on his seminal album "Donuts".

"Las Venus Resort Palace Hotel" will be out in the Spring 2010

Viviane Sassen

We came across Dutch photographer Viviane Sassen through her fashion photography for Adidas. In these pictures she revistis her childhood home of Kenya to come up with these beautiful images.

Viviane Sassen grew up in Kenya, where her father practised as a doctor. Her earliest memories of her youth stretch back to this time. She remembers the beauty of the landscape and the children with whom she used to play. She also recollects the poverty of the shanty towns and her father's terminally ill patients.

Sassen first revisited Africa in 2002. Since then, the continent has formed the subject of her photography, as reflected in the series ‘Flamboya’, in her ‘Ultra Violet’ sketchbook and the ‘Ultra Violet’ series. ‘Sassen knows how to go beyond the confines of her subject. The photographs do not just portray death, loss and urban life in Africa. They show genuine humanity, cultural clichés, Sassen's personal life story and aesthetics.
