A self-directed film shot in New York and Accra, rapper Samuel Bazawule (Blitz the Ambassador)’s latest short film Diasporadical Trilogia, like his previous work, features both befuddling and compelling narratives and imagery about love, loss, and history. It complements his latest DIASPORADICAL album which was launched in Accra, November 4.
Blitz’ superior depth and dexterity, as well as an arresting stagecraft have seen him tour the world frequently, receive international acclaim, and bag association with such rap icons as Public Enemy, The Roots, and John Forte.
