Video Premiere: S3 (Miles Bonny & Brenk Sinatra) - "Stars Shine" [Official Video]

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

S3 aka Miles Bonny and Brenk Sinatra deliver the video for "Stars Shine" - a song from Supa Soul Sh*t, their debut LP which dropped in October 2012. The video for the cool track is an exercise in ritual cleansing and evolutionary transition punctuated by Miles Bonny's horn playing and meditative vocal as he prepares to leave life in the city for the desert of New Mexico by smudging downtown Kansas City with sage. His efforts to cleanse the midwestern metropolis of its negative energy are laughed at by some while others inquire about the rite of purification with genuine curiosity. With the push toward sustainability and greater self-reliance, Miles Bonny has decided to live according to his changing ideals by adjusting his lifestyle in drastic ways.

The video, which was processed through analog equipment, plays with a hazy ethereal tone that speaks to his journey toward enlightenment as much as it embodies the dust and vast landscape of the desert. The clip includes personal footage from Miles Bonny's family life taken after a temporary relocation to Arizona this past winter. Putting down stakes in New Mexico since then, Miles Bonny is building a home for his family from local and natural materials as he ventures to live with greater respect toward the earth and its dwindling resources. The journey he and his family have begun is one that more and more people have chosen to embark upon as the climate worsens and people begin to act upon fears that the convenience and mass consumption of our daily lives threatens to consume us.
