Time Pieces by Jason Goldwatch: Jay Electronica in Nepal

We first showed you Pharrell Williams & Karolina Kurkova in Brazil a few weeks ago, today we bring to you the second installment of Jason GoldwatchTime Pieces video series starring the ever-elusive Jay Electronica. Shot then developed by hand and cut by hand, the song the footage is set to is called “Namaste,” it was written and composed by MCA after his first trip to Nepal.

“I’ll always remember that we almost died in a helicopter when the Himalayan fog rolled up on us, just below base camp on Mount Everest (Sagarmāthā to the locals),” said Goldwatch. “We were forced to emergency land, just our translator, helicopter pilot, the DP, myself and Jay in a foggy valley, waiting for the fog bed to clear. We stayed up almost all night and drank Johnny Walker and laughed ‘tll the sun rose.  We were so alive and so far away but we truly felt like we were home.”
