Singer/songwriter Sanya N’Kanta takes a profound look at police brutality with the haunting visuals for his song “Silence Is Violence.” Backed by a menacing and anthemic guitar-laden backdrop, N’Kanta replays the unnecessary killing of Tamir Rice with added insight into the situation. He delivers a spine chilling performance as he taps into pained emotions that results in a heartrending record that speaks volumes. While some may choose to look the other way, N’Kanta stands his ground and reminds us that in this situation silence is far from golden and everyone needs to speak out.
The visual directed by John Isberg really captured all the characters involved in the Tamir Rice shooting and brings the heartfelt song to life with its cinematic and soul-gripping aesthetics.
