Hurray for the Riff Raff Shares New Video For ‘Living in the City’

Hurray for the Riff Raff has shared the music video for “Living in the City”, a track taken from the recently released full-length The Navigator via ATO Records. The vibrant video was filmed in New York City and brings to life the story of ‘The Navigator,’ which Alynda Segarra crafted around a character named Navita, a wandering soul and street kid at a crossroads of identity and ancestral weight. In the video, Navita (played by Segarra), is joined by her crew The Mariposas, a tight unit that weave through the streets and dance on a rooftop as the sun sets behind them.

I wanted Giselle Bailey to direct ‘Living in the City’ because I am a fan of her work and I knew she understood that I wanted to represent the New York City I grew up with. Women taking over public space and making room for ourselves in a society where we are so often threatened into hiding. I learned at a young age that survival in the city for me meant having a crew. Together we could move through the concrete maze and create some sense of freedom.” – Alynda Segarra
