“Ailleurs” by Aysat is my musical crush of the moment.
Her new single and video launched on December 1st, 2017 has got everyone talking and the internet buzzing. With more than 147,000 YouTube views in less than a week, she is definitely off to a good start.
Of Senegalese-Mauritanian decent, singer, songwriter and producer, Aysat reveals an extremely rich musicality. The song describes a universal storyline, so many people around the world can relate to. Aysat describes daily struggles and hardships without losing sight of her goal, to make the world dance.
Her music is the results of a clever combination of urban pop, African sonorities elevated by a brilliantly written and powerful text, that will not leave you insensitive.
There is just something about her music and the world she describes that I am drawn towards.
The video is inspired and staged around Victor Hugo's master piece “Les Misérables” in a contemporary and captivating way, in which Aysat displays her dancing skills in a gripping choreography, mixing modern jazz and hip hop.
I hope you will enjoy her music and this video as much as I did. Watch it, like it, share it!
