Haviah Mighty has been making some big moves in the last few months. From her multiple awards, festival performances, and now she turns them into a ‘smooth-sashay’ on the new single “Flamenco”. This new single features multiple Grammy award-winning Latin artist, Mala Rodríguez and continues to bring the heat after her previous release, Avocado (featuring producer, Grandtheft). Haviah steps to the beat and pulse in this sensual, castanet-inflected track reminiscent of an adventure in a new place, with a sound that embodies the striking, powerful energy of its namesake artform. Listen to Flamenco and watch the visualizer by BlackPowerBarbie below.
“Flamenco” was produced by Mighty and her long-time collaborator, Taabu (who’s known for his work on 13th Floor standout, “Wishy Washy”), but this spicy international collaboration transcends continent and genre.
“With this one, I wanted to try something different! Inspired by the cultural influences behind flamenco, this song allowed me to be a guest in a new genre. Mala Rodríguez really brought this record home – her verse added authenticity, sensuality and pizzazz. She has a great voice and message, and with her Spanish roots, I felt that she spoke to the energy of the song more directly than I ever could,” Haviah says. “It’s a feel-good song, with the intention of resonating on a dance floor, with the bass pulsing as heavily as the sweat on one’s brow as they hit their moves. This song is quite literally a vibe!”
“Flamenco” will be a part of Haviah’s new mixtape Stock Exchange, which is set for release this fall this year. The title refers to a reckoning Haviah had internally over the last year, connecting with how artists are forced to validate their value based on random data (followers, subscribers) and losing a part of the authentic human-to-human universal experience of art. Get familiar with Haviah Mighty’s work to date ahead of Stock Exchange and watch as she continues to rise in sound and vision on stages across Canada this summer.
Hey there! I’m Zach I love long walks on the beach and movies that make you cry. Wait a minute this isn’t my E-Harmony account. Let’s try this again, hi I’m Zach from Dawson Creek, BC. Before you think it, no it’s not like the TV show! I have loved music ever since I was a kid back in Abbotsford, BC where I was born. Moved up north when I was about six and was practically raised up here. Hands down one of my favorite Canadian band has to be Simple Plan, with Dallas Smith coming in second. One of my Favorite Things I enjoy doing is just sitting around listening to music or taking pictures. I’d say I’m a pretty good photographer but you can be the judge of that. Just even ask a couple of my friends City light vigil, Scarlet serenity or Violet night. If you’re still reading this congratulations you’ve reached the end.
