M.I.A. – “Broader Than A Border” Video


After some teasing over the past week, M.I.A. has debuted a new project called Matahdatah with a video dubbed Scroll 01 “Broader Than A Border.” It was shot in West India and Africa and features traditional dancers from both locales, along with shots of M.I.A. sitting among it all. The video incorporates a new song called “Swords” (which leaked in demo form over the weekend) and her Matangi track “Warriors.” The video of the African dancer very well could be the footage that M.I.A. said was blocked by her label due to concerns over “cultural appropriation,” but that’s not entirely clear. As with most things that M.I.A. puts out, the visuals are pretty stunning. Watch below via Apple Music.
