Kingdom Philosophy: Andre Bugatti looks deeper for the true realness in this flaky world with ‘Tell Me Your Lies’

As he hides his face away to keep it pure from the greedy vampires who are out for blood, Andre Bugatti has our minds awash with total intrigue on his latest track ‘Tell Me Your Lies‘.

Andre Bugatti is a Kerala, India-born, Auckland, New Zealand-raised indie hip-hop artist. He makes a soundscape come to life that is totally his own, as its completely sincere and full of inner meaning, mixed in with deliciously mellow beats to provoke the soul into a different space in time.

Influenced by his upbringing, both eastern and western culture play a part in his delicate story telling. Struggling to find a place in these two worlds, Andre has decided to fit into neither and make his own.” ~ Andre Bugatti

There is a soul-stirring release that is captured like a nostalgic Polaroid on this worthwhile track – that is packed full of calming flows – and a beat which seems to match the mood of this experience just right.

Tell Me Your Lies‘ from the New Zealand-raised indie rapper Andre Bugatti, is a highly thoughtful release which feels like he is looking for more than what meets the eye. In a world full of lies and swirling confusion, he ride away from the gusting winds that can take you away from that much-needed reality. He raps with a calm energy and a thoughtful mindset – that wraps a peaceful blend of love all over our hungry-for-real hearts – that truly needs all the love possible.

Looking at everything from the top of the mountain without getting flustered like a majestic Lion would, is the only way to avoid getting tangled into the fake part of this beautiful world.

Creative choreography is back: South India’s The Fortune (ft. Lucia Valdes) drop vibrant video ‘Not Here For You’

Southern India duo The Fortune brings their blend of R&R-Soul to uplift the morbid mood of the world with their official video for ‘Not Here For You‘ (ft. Lucia Valdes). With dance moves that are only for those with supple hips, the exciting song reflects the electric energy of this close knit duo who love to support the underdog artist.

Kerala, India based classically trained pianist Dr Dhananj Shivganesh and sound engineer Nikhil Pradip are the creative masterminds of this project and they support the underground music scene and unearthing diamonds in the rough that have not been found. Until now that is. Music is alive and well in a country that is slowly becoming a music mecca.

The dancing and choreography is exquisitely done and the vocals shine through like a sunny day outside. The beat is a pleasurable listen and this is a spectacular song that you just can’t get enough of.

A story all about not dancing for anyone else is portrayed and this is example for all of us out there. We often get wrapped up about worrying about impressing others due to the comparable nature of social media which is the opposite of what we actually should be doing. Dancing a way of self-expression and The Fortune (ft. Lucia Valdes) fuse this track tightly that young and old need to see on ‘Not Here For You’. You are here for yourself, your family and close friends after all and being free and enjoying looking at yourself in the mirror humbly, is the way to go.
