Mo Kolours’ Banana Wine release on One-Handed Music, blends African and Latin rhythms with soul, dub, hip hop and electronic and the video, featuring Mo Kolours along side a montage of bananas, snake charmers, dancers and unidentifiable black and white clips, enhances the other-worldly sound of the single.
