Italy based, UK Funky influenced, electronic music purveyors Pepe Soup recently released the above song and video, a proud recollection of Liberian childhood punishment survival.

The Italian-Liberian duo have been busy this year, releasing a string of EPs on their own label, and contributing to the soundtrack for Al Jazeera and Dutch Public Television’s series on African migration, Surprising Europe.

It’s nice to see such a strong entry coming in from the Liberian diaspora. Since Doneao’s “Party Hard” was on repeat in Monrovia this summer, maybe by this time next year Funky Liberia a la Pepe Soup will be a staple at the city’s clubs.
