Young Cardamom & HAB – #1 Spice

Mira Nair’s films often have great soundtracks (I still play my Monsoon Wedding one regularly) and Queen of Katwe’s bursts with flavour. So even though Alicia Keys penned a special ballad for the film  – Back To Life – and her voice is as usual sensational, it’s not my favourite song on there. That must go to #1 Spice, by Ugandan hip-hop duo Young Cardamom and HAB. Mira directed the video herself, so it captures the irrepressible spirit of the film and I believe that Young Cardamom is also Mira’s son, hence the Indian flavours. Talk about making your mother proud.
