The smooth vocals on the re-imagined version of “Ubomi Abumanga” send chills down the spine.
The new music video, titled “Follow The Sunset”, combines sounds of nature and depicts the award-winning performers Msaki and Sun-El Musician perform on Llandudno beach.
It also includes sunset scenes from the rocks overlooking the ocean.
The song is said to be a celebration of the eternal turn of the day into night, an opportunity for rest, and the restoration of a sense of peace.
“Ubomi Abumanga – Follow The Sunset”, is a gorgeous, symphonic plea to appreciate that simple moments make life beautiful,“ read a statement.
The original version of “Ubomi Abumanga” (“Life Hasn’t Stopped”) was the second single from Sun-El Musician’s 31-track 2020 studio album “To The World & Beyond,” which was essentially a healing and hope-focused offering through dance music.
The song, which featured Msaki, was released shortly after the end of the Covid-19 pandemic and spoke about overcoming hardships and challenges at the time, with the message that “the sun will come out.”
“Whenever I come to the sea, I always feel like when the sun sets, a song waiting for me. This was a very special moment for me to be able to have done this version of the song at this time in my life,” said Msaki.
Sun-El Musician added that using natural sounds in the song intrigued him.
“The idea of what nature would sound like in a song intrigued me– and when Corona suggested we find out, I couldn’t resist.
“So, we took natural sounds that moved us when we were on the beach and used them to help define an entirely new mood and production style on ‘Ubomi Abumanga’. It’s a totally reimagined song.”
“Follow The Sunset” has been released on YouTube ahead of the Corona Sunsets Festival World Tour, which both artists will be performing at in Cape Town.
The gig will be one of Msaki’s last performances before she takes time apart from music.
