Nazar's new song under a new moniker.
Purchasable with gift card
£1GBP or more
The new working name of Yaera is the product of meditation throughout 2020’s pandemic, and where Nazar was used to release hyper-masculine, aggressive productions that invoked memories of Angolan civil war, Alcides’ new alias Yaera is intended to have a more open-ended, multi-faceted approach - interrogating not just conflict, but his heritage and identity.
Alcides describes the new alias as necessary in “preparing myself for a post-Guerilla journey, centering myself before anything else”, and goes on to describe the new single: “the name - Elavoko 1 -
comes from Umbundu and means hope… rough kuduro reassembled with the Yaera ethos”.
Song will shortly be followed by a music video director by Rob Heppel under NTS Carhatt WIP program, later today
