JAY ELECTRONICA IS A “TIMELESS PIECE”
The latest installment of Jason Goldwatch’s video series “Timeless Pieces” features New Orleans rapper, Jay Electronica. Goldwatch follows Electronica on a spiritual journey through the Himalaya to the villages of Nepal, all while capturing with a Super 8mm camera. Goldwatch speaks about the experience,
Second installment. Through Kathmandhu. Shot then developed by hand and cut by hand. The song the footage is set to is called ‘Namaste,’ it was written and composed by MCA after his first trip to Nepal.
I’ll always remember that we almost died in a helicopter when the Himalayan fog rolled up on us, just below base camp on Mount Everest (Sagarmāthā to the locals). We were forced to emergency land, just our translator, helicopter pilot, the DP, myself and Jay in a foggy valley, waiting for the fog bed to clear. We stayed up almost all night and drank Johnny Walker and laughed ‘tll the sun rose. We were so alive and so far away but we truly felt like we were home.”
