Batuk—the trio of South African producers Spoek Mathambo and Aero Manyelo alongside artist and vocalist Manteiga—are using house music as a means of connecting the diaspora. Their debut album, Musica de Terra, is a truly pan-African affair with sonic influences that span from afrohouse to soul to zouk, kuduro, deep house, techno and traditional African sounds. In the video she’s referring to, the Batuk singer can be seen in a fiery red leather suit cruising around Paris’ 18th arrondissement (district)—a part of town known for an abundance of sex shops and prostitution. She’s absolutely owning her sexuality.
