Zakee's sound is one that cannot be pinpointed to one continental location, and we may have figured out why.
The Senegalese born artist is known for his clash of symphonic cultures like the ones heard on his 2011 debut album Assimilations that featured Brazilian flavor.
The former high school math teacher and painter turned musician/ producer was out and about in some of the most dangerous parts of Brazil seeking locations to shoot, and inspiration for his music.
GlobalGrind was lucky enough to get a fist look at Zakee out and about in Brazil after meeting the drug lord of Rio.
Zakee's next album Rise of the Rebels is expected out in September, but until then take a loot at the footage in the video above of Zakee strolling through Rio reflecting on what he experienced in the Favelas of Brazil for the art of his music.
