Earlier this year, Brooklyn-based, New Zealand Ghanaian musician Leila Adu premiered the music video for her new song 'Love Cells' via Afropunk. Afropunk describe it as a psychedelic rock track "all about universal love, and the inherently spiritual love that we share with humanity, the Earth, and the cosmos." In Leila's words, "'Love Cells' represents the fact that we are all the same underneath—we are cellular. Acts of bigotry, racial hatred, war and poor-blaming and future disregard of global poverty and climate change, shows how the belief that we are separate is dangerous."
After premiering ‘Love Cells’ via Afropunk, Leila successfully ran a crowdfunding campaign to tour her Love Cells and Scary Love Monster EP releases. Between December and February, Leila is bringing her ‘Love Cells’ tour to New Zealand for four shows in Christchurch, Palmerston North, Wellington and Auckland.
