Nigerian-born Suté Iwar is the latest artist to watch in the Afro-fusion scene, and his latest release, "MEDITATE," is proof of why.
The single, which features Tay Iwar and Lex Amor, is a timeless groove that showcases Suté's genre-fluid sound. The cinematic video, directed by East London native Sau Ali (known for working with Jords, Lancey Foux, and SL), explores the cosmic themes running throughout the ULTRALIGHT project. It takes viewers on a trippy journey through virtual reality, with Suté entering another dimension.
The video perfectly captures the intergalactic vibes of the ULTRALIGHT project, which dropped last month to critical acclaim. The album features a star-studded lineup from West Africa and the UK, including WurlD, Tim Lyre, Kadiata, Raytheboffin, Shalom Dubas, Ogranya, Efe Oraka, and Twelve XII. ULTRALIGHT is half self-care and half immeasurable flex, and it successfully mingles the exquisite with the sensual.
The "MEDITATE" video is a mind-bending experience that's sure to leave viewers in awe. It's a reminder to slow down and breathe amidst the crazy whirlwind that is life. Suté's message is clear: we need to practice mindfulness daily to stay grounded. The ULTRALIGHT project explores space, sound, love, and lust, and it's a must-listen for anyone who's into Afro-fusion.
Suté's rise to stardom has been meteoric, and he's received notable cosigns from COLORS, Billboard, DJ Target, Rebecca Judd, and DJ Ace. If you want to experience Suté's otherworldly sound live, be sure to catch his headline show at The Grace on Friday, May 19. Suté Iwar is one of the most exciting artists in the game right now, and he's definitely one to watch.
