One of Melbourne’s most confident and enduring hip hop presences – Vida Sunshyne – is back with new music, arriving at the most perfect of times.
The single, titled ‘Free’ captures the spirit of Vida Sunshyne, demonstrating her effortless approach to vocal delivery and flow and reminding newcomers and long time fans alike why Vida is a force of spirit and musical talent.
Recorded at Cool Black Studio in Nungua, Accra, ‘Free’ represents a series of observations and inspirations from Vida’s time spent in Ghana. A moment of reconnection and reclamation for Vida as she travelled to Ghana and returned artistically and personally nourished, ‘Free’ is a spotlight on this time.
“It’s basically a summary of all I’d learned during my time in Ghana, and I felt it was important to share that with the world over a Ssnowbeatz instrumental. It’s about knowing your own power and standing firm, as the free creator beings that we all are. My intent is to empower all who listen to it.” – VIDA SUNSHYNE
The final result is poignant and impactful; moreover, it’s a fitting new addition to Vida Sunshyne’s accomplished body of work. Vida’s career has seen the performer develop an explosive stage presence on headline stages in Australia, as well as supporting the likes of Ziggy Marley, Chase & Status, Ja Rule and more.
Her voice and influence has been featured on collaborations with Thundamentals, KillaQueenz and Astronomy Class to name a few and it’s unsurprising as to why Vida has commanded the respect and renown from the community around the country alike.
The energy that she radiates as a performer has led to a special connection with her fans and with the release of a track like ‘Free’, Vida Sunshyne and her fans alike can share in the rejuvenation and empowerment of her message.
