The music video for Global Party Starters’ track “Bout Us” ft. Elise Estrada & J.Young is live on STORYHIVE, a community-powered funding program by Telus that awards production grants to local creative talent in Western Canada.
“Bout Us” is a real-life “Romeo and Juliet” story that highlights cultural stigmas in Canada. Featuring Kamantha Naidoo in the lead role, the video deals with the taboo in South Asian culture of dating and marrying outside of your culture and religion.
The song is written about the true story of desiFEST founder & GPS co-founder, SatsB, and his wife Michelle. SatsB, a South Indian Hindu, fell in love with Michelle, an East African Muslim. Their struggle led to the creation of desiFEST, a platform that uses music to build bridges between cultures. GPS won $10,000 to produce this music video in the last round of voting, and your votes could help them win round two which includes tickets to SXSW!
