Baker Boy unveils the video for his latest single, Marryuna
The Northern Territory hip-hop name has become one of 2017's stand-out newcomers, something which will no doubt continue this year.
Over the past twelve months, Baker Boy has become one of Australian hip-hop's most discussed names. Hailing from the Milingimbi community in north-eastern Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory, the rising name is the first break-out artist to rap in an indigenous language, with singles including Cloud 9 and his most recent, Marryuna, both featuring Baker Boy rapping along in Yolngu Matha. Marryuna, which translates to 'dancing' in Yolngu Matha, is set to feature at the pointy end of Saturday's Hottest 100, but before the big occasion, he's now unveiled the official video clip of the single, which further solidifies the catchy, instantly danceable vibe of the track. It's a celebration of all things dance and movement, which you can't help but get swept up amongst when you watch the clip below. "In Yolngu culture, dance plays a pivotal role," Baker Boy explains on the single and video. "There’s ceremonial dance, celebratory dance and then there’s Marryuna; to dance with no shame, to freestyle for the sheer elation of dancing."
