PREMIERE: Alborosie ft. Protoje “Strolling” Video

Sicilian-born musician Alberto D’ Ascola, or as he’s more commonly known, Alborosie, is an international sensation known for his rootsy brand of reggae. The Italian expat has been living in Jamaica for over a decade now and operates out of his Shengen Studio in the foothills of Kingston. The capital city served as the perfect backdrop for his latest eye-popping video, “Strolling,” featuring Jamaican-born reggae artist Protoje. The visuals for the track, off his Freedom & Fyah album on Greensleeves, are next level.

“Protoje and I shot the video in Kingston, Jamaica,” says Alborosie to Mass Appeal. “This rotoscoping technique was something different that really captured the cool calm demeanor of a rasta man strolling through, so it fit perfectly for the song.”
