New Hip-Hop Fused Dancehall Video From Karamanti “Spiritual Realms”

Karamanti has just released the official video for Spiritual Realms, the second single from her album, Spiritual Warfare, published in December, 2021.

The video was shot at two locations in Kingston, Jamaica: Nelson Mandela Park in Half Way Tree and Hope Botanical Gardens – more popularly known as Hope Zoo – on Old Hope Road. It was shot by Crazy Media TV and edited by Maria Jackson.

Although the song’s lyrical content focuses on some very profound unworldly matters, the approach to the visuals was much more relaxed. It features several dance routines done by Street Team, the winners of Jamaica’s popular television program Dancin’ Dynamites

The rhythm for Spiritual Realms was built by Major P, who is based in Prague, the capital of Czech Republic. It was recorded at Anchor Studios in Kingston; mixed at Lampshade Music in Portmore and mastered by AudioTraxx Productions in Old Harbour.
