David Knight - 18th May 2015

Portuguese director Richard F. Coelho has created a vivacious piece to accompany the boisterous, big horn sound of Cais Sodré Funk Connection's Offbeat.

Within an abandoned (and probably condemned) industrial space, he introduces a diverse cast of characters - plus the numerous members of Cais Sodré - that personify, in Coelho's words, "their and our features, fears, aspirations, sexual duality and more, in a fun and offbeat way."

All the more impressive that it was put together on a tiny budget after the band asked Coelho to make the video. A visual feast, from a promising new directing talent.
