Tune du Jour: “Immigrants (We Get The Job Done)”

For US Independence Day, this is “Immigrants (We Get The Job Done)” by Lin-Manuel Miranda, which is more mini mini-film than it is music video.

The first video for the album ‘The Hamilton Mixtape‘, it’s a reminder and strong reflection, in a disastrously politicized climate, about how and on whose shoulders the country was founded.

Inspired by “Yorktown (The World Turned Upside Down)” from the musical Hamilton, the video features artists K’naan (a Somali Canadian), Residente (Puerto Rican), Riz MC (British Pakistani) and Snow Tha Product (Mexican-American) delivering much of the score.

Happy Fourth of July to friends, family, colleagues readers and browsers in the USA. Enjoy!
