Denise Chaila featuring Jafaris – Anseo

Regular, mature readers will know that we feature every genre under the sun – from folk to dance to hip-hop and everything in between – in this column, posting over 250 Irish music videos a year.

A case in point is Zambian-born, Limerick-based rapper Denise Chaila (top), who we proudly championed when she burst onto the scene last year.

Now Denise’s star is about to go into orbit after winning the prestigious RTÉ Choice Prize last week for her album Go Bravely.

The most recent single Anseo features guest vocals from Jafaris with a memorable video shot in Dromoland Castle and directed by Stephen Hall.

Nick says: Go Denise.

    That was excellent! Really unusual, cool melody, didn’t expect bits of Irish in there, but it works great!

    My daughter played me that song back in December/ January, told me I’d love it and she was right. It’s amazing, and the video too! Top class stuff.

    I like Chaila. I don’t think she would like the article ‘Policing must return to first principles’ posted next to this one. I am going to go out on a limb and say she really would not like it much at all or have much truck with what the author is implying, particularly in relation to Blanchardstown.
