Montreal world hip hop collective NOMADIC MASSIVE unveils a brand new single Konba, off their most recent full length record The Big Band Theory, launched in June 2016.

Konba (combat in English), just as its Creole name states it, represents a call for  resistance. The song is an ode to the strength of sound and to having power in numbers. As Haitian folklore leads the way on the chorus, the MC’s rap all together with percussive flows over an Afro-Cuban sample, giving birth to a tribal rhythm that remains undeniably Hip Hop.

E, Nou pap janmen bese lebra, no
Nou pap janmen bese lebra, no
N’ap konbat yo ak yon sel vwa

This new single is also accompanied by a music video directed by Jimmy Francoeur of DTO Films. The team has made good usage of projections and of the mapping technique.
