Video / Riz MC: Mogambo

Riz follows the Swet Shop Boys LP up with fresh music and video revealing a different side to Pakistan. The Tom Calvert(fka Redinho)-produced Mogambo is out to buy/stream here, and is out on Swet Shop Boys’ own label, Customs.

Read my most recent interview with Riz over at Bonafide.

These are traditional Pakistani folk wrestlers aka ‘pehlvaan’. Met them on my trip to Lahore this year. Brown men usually shown as insane & scary, or weak & meek. Rarely as complex, contradictory, & fully human. But these guys will kick your ass while wearing floral thongs. Fuck what you thought about us.
