Janka Nabay & The Bubu Gang – “Feba” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
From last year’s En Yay Sah, Sierra Leone dance music artist Janka Nabay’s project with NY group the Bubu Gang, comes “Feba.” According to Nabay, the song tackles a difficult side to paternity: “‘Feba’ is about a baby that you have with a woman that you are really are in love with, but you are not totally sure is yours. Even though the baby looks sort of like you, you are still not sure of the back story.” Its video, directed by previous collaborator Jon Casey, is also one of relationship turmoil. But here, it’s about balancing the stress of leaving someone at home, especially when she’s pregnant, but how the company of your bandmates can deflect it. Check it out below.
