New York New York

video, colour, 16:9, stereo, BE, 2014, 03:30

Endurance Idahosa is 16 years old and left Nigeria three years ago. Since then, he lives in Belgium. He is a footballer, plays drums in the local church, loves chicken and donuts.
He embodies “New York New York”, a song that speaks of hopes, dreams and… endurance.
Multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Radway reinterprets the music, suggesting the idea of a one-man-orchestra roaming the streets of New York.

New York New York is a collaboration with Fairuz and part of the Karaoke (ART) series by Davis Freeman.
