Fatima al Qadiri’s ‘Vatican Vibes’

Fatima al Qadiri's 'Vatican Vibes' Fatima al Qadiri is an artist who periodically makes our collective jaws drop. After melting into the void with her latest Tri Angle EP WARN-U, we were figuring on waiting at least a few more months before hearing more from her mystic vocal chords. Then, last night she premiered a brand-new music video that made us go ‘Holy shit’ really loud and then the barista got mad and told us to keep down the pottymouth. ‘Vatican Vibes’ is a cut off her brand new upcoming EP Genre-Specific Xperience, and each of the six tracks will be presented in music video format from six different next-level artists, including Kamau Patton, Leilah Weinraub, Sophia Al-Maria, Ryan Trecartin, Rhett LaRue, and in this case Tabor Robak. Ultra-futuristic, ‘Vatican Vibes’ takes a CGI tour through a virtual world made sterile by religion. Enjoy the religious experience below, and if you’re in New York City October 21st, be sure to see a screening of all six videos at the New Museum.
