Eli & Alex Wondergem are buying their freedom

Buying our Freedom, the collaboration of ELi & Alex Wondergem is out now.

The EP composed in Ghana by ELi and Alex Wondergem touches different subjects of Ghana self-love, cannabis, not giving a fuck (Track ‘Je m’en Bats les Couilles’) and what it means to be a ‘hueman’ (Track ‘Hueman’). Here are ELi & Alex’ words about the project :

“Buying Our Freedom is a project about seeking truth. It’s a reflection of our awareness within the paradigm we collectively inhabit as human. The project depicts the narrative of alternative African artist and highlights the importance of collaboration. Beyond music, it is also a visual project showcasing the motherland in a way never seen before.”

The duo made a beautiful music video with Will Niava, a filmmaker from Montreal :
