Belgium-based hip-hop artist Baloji (originally from Congo) has released 64 Bits & Malachite, a new EP which includes the track Capture. Baloji explains: "The video is a metaphor for the DRC identity crisis. A group of artists are on exile road, traveling to an unknown destination. The video also narrates the quest of two astronauts searching for the statue of Henry Morton Stanley, the Welsh explorer responsible for the discovery of the river Congo while searching for the Nile. The statue for the Welsh adventurer personifies the struggle that Congo went through. A struggle that brought them from being a slave state, to a colony on to their wish for independence, and then going back to a dictatorship."
