Jonathan Emile – Movement Music

CDN Movement this is an artist worth taking intrest in, following the success of his debut album ‘The Lover/Fighter Document LP‘, The Montreal native Jonathan Emile is back with the newest visual from the project, ‘Movement Music‘.

Directed and shot by King Richard, the video sees Jonathan explore and embrace two major segments of the 20th Century; a poignant reminder of the plight of the African diaspora in North America (through the Civil Rights movement until the present day) and the Cuban revolutionaries fighting to free their country from their oppressive government.

Focusing on the light and the dark sides of both himself and history, the juxtaposition of the modern day black man in America with the Latin American revolutionary in the basement make for a powerful statement. This is such an impressive concept that you rarely see in today music indusrty, True Canadian Movement we Salute!

The Lover/Fighter Document LP‘ features guest appearances from the likes of Buckshot, Murs and Kendrick Lamar, with production courtesy of Aphyliated, Lo-Go, MIYEKOW and Jonathan himself.
