Video of the Moment #2810: L.A. Salami

The ubercool Lookman Adekunle Salami records under the ever cooler name of L.A. Salami. The man, not the cured meat in a rolled shape, began a North American tour yesterday in San Francisco that will continue through the first week of April, ending on the 7th of April at Washington’s DC9. These live dates are all in anticipation of Mister Salami’s sophomore album ‘City of Bootmakers’, scheduled for release on the 13th of April on Rob da Bank’s Sunday Best Recordings. Single ‘Jean is Gone’ from the LP is a fun one, and it’s got an equally fun video, shot on handheld cameras and capturing early spring sunshine in Paris. Filmed by Salami’s friend Diane Sagnier, the promo video is a series of clips featuring various Parisian landmarks and Lookman’s seemingly effortless choreography. Watch it below. For more on L.A. Salami, including my coverage of him at SXSW 2017, go here.
