Jinja Safari co-frontman, Pepa Knight, released his debut solo track ‘Rahh!’ last month.  After snaring immediate blog praise from all corners of the globe (including Canada, Europe, United States, United Kingdom and India), Knight has now delivered an official video clip for the standout single.

‘Rahh!’ is the first track to be taken from a collection of songs written and recorded by Knight on his travels to India between 2011 and 2013. He recently spoke to Rolling Stone India about the writing process:

“‘Rahh!’ was originally written on my first trip to India and all I wanted to do at the time was to escape everything and become a sadhu [hermit]. Obviously I didn’t have the guts to do it but the song is about craving something more and wanting a change.”

Featuring sampled sounds from the Himalayas, Amritsar’s Golden Temple, Gandhi’s hometown Ahmedabad, and the many cities of Rajasthan, Pepa’s solo material is building towards an upcoming collection of songs titled Hypnotized – due later in 2014.
