'Immigrant Boogie' will get a live airing here in October.
We’re all sorts of excited that Ghostpoet is kicking off a lengthy autumn tour on October 24 in the Dublin Button Factory.
The Artist Also Known As Obaro Ejimiwe has also debuted a new track, ‘Immigrant Boogie’, which is very much made for these depressing times.
“It's a first person account of a difficult journey across borders, partly intended to ask those who have questioned the arrival of refugees in recent times what they would do in the same situation,” he explains. “The song is written in two halves - the first hopeful for a brighter future, while the second sees hope snatched away by forces beyond the control of the storyteller.
“There is an important story to be told there, but I wrote the song in a way that aims to capture a broader human truth: that while we are all working for a better life for ourselves, we have to accept that we are not in control of the outcome.”
He now plays the Button Factory on Friday October 25.Read More
