Idols South Africa 2018 winner Yanga released the music video for her second single, Promised Land, featuring Amanda Black and The Soweto Gospel Choir on Tuesday, 28 May 2019.
Mirrored on the visual aesthetics commonly used in many gospel music videos, Pilot Films uses those tropes in the making of Yanga’s Promised Land music video. Using two primary locations – which are a green, lush forest and a barren, dry sand dune – the music video places Yanga and her featured artists singing in those spaces directly into the camera.
The music video starts with a wide, low angled shot of Yanga standing in the middle of lush, green land and as the harmonies of the choir begin, we move to the second location where Amanda Black is introduced. The artists in the music video are styled similarly in variations of African prints.
