Slow Joe & The Ginger Accident - My Sway [Official Clip]

'My Sway' is the first upcoming video clip from their latest album 'Let me be gone' !!! The clip is a small posthumous homage to 6 years of life shared between 'Slow Joe' and The Ginger Accident (Cedric de la Chapelle, the redhead and his band ...). A minimalist piece in the form of a collage-video clip-documentary created from photos and archive videos.

Joseph Manuel Rocha more known like 'Slow Joe', was born in Mumbai the 22 of March of 1943. Cedric de la Chapelle (The Ginger), first encounters 'Slow Joe' in Goa (India), where he offered himself as a tour guide. Joe was 64 years old and had a past of drug addiction and alcoholism but also had an innate musical talent.
Lover of freedom, Joe was a character of unleashed spirit and the freewill was for years his philosophy of life. After 50 years of wandering, taking poetry and using drugs, and without having previously climbed to a stage, in December 2009 he left India to give the first concert of his life at the Festival of 'Transmusicales' in Rennes (FR).

This chance encounter two years earlier changed the lives of both men and began a fascinating human and professional adventure beyond the differences of age, culture or social status.
Slow Joe died of natural causes in May 2016 just after completing the recording of "Let Me Be Gone", his third and last album that will be published posthumously next February of 2017.
