Sarah Roston: Eu Incomodo – Friday Soundtrack

The soundtrack to our Friday is the stunning ‘Eu Incomodo’ (I Bother) by Brazilian Sarah Roston. Stop what you’re doing, watch this video, and catch yourself doing the dance moves for the rest of the day …

Filmed in downtown São Paulo, the video is a marked challenge to the country’s far-right political regime, and draws inspiration from the neglected communities currently under threat. Scenes of homelessness and the “favela” in the Paraisópolis neighbourhood are shown throughout; capturing the unity, positivity and happiness that can exist in those spaces despite extremely challenging circumstances. The result is a message of optimism and comradery, spirited by the groove-based music and dance choreography.
