This is Meta & The Cornerstones whose members are from Africa, North America, the Middle East and Asia. This beautiful video was shot in the hometown of the leadsinger, Meta-Dia in Jaffa, Senegal.
[Meta & The Cornerstones] carry a sound that is a literal unification of the world’s musical experience. With a classic feel-good reggae sound that also channels the smoothness of soul, the political fire of hip-hop, and the energy of Afropop, the band has carved a niche for itself, especially here in New York City where they just announced a monthly residency at the 92Y Tribeca. The other day, National Geographic Music premiered the group’s first official video, featured above. This colorful masterpiece gets at the heart of Meta’s music – African inspired reggae goodness.
