White rapper EES (with striped shirt), German Ambassador H.E. Onno Hueckmann (centre), Ongoro Nomundo band members and representatives of The Global Experience announced they are working on a music video that will be shown for the first time on 20 March to launch local Independence celebrations.

The Namibian musician EES, Oviritje legend Ongoro Nomundu and The Global Experience together with learners from four different schools from Windhoek and Münster, this week started filming the first German Namibian music video showing the reconciliation of a young united generation.

The film team arrived on last week together with EES in Windhoek, and started making a music video together with the band, Ongoro Nomundu and about 50 students from the GermanNamibia exchange programme.
On Wednesday, a day of shooting was scheduled at the A Shipena Secondary School where the film team’s official welcoming took place.
The video shoot and production is organised by the Global Experience e.V. with financial support from the German Embassy in Windhoek.
It is scheduled to be released on Friday 20 March in a number of towns across the country.
The first showing will be with the presentation of the video at the Big Opening Event of the German Weeks 2015 on 20 March at Goethe-Centre in Windhoek under the theme: “From Namibia and Germany, together for the future.”
After the initial release, it will be broadcast on YouTube.
In addition to the video clip of the song “Never Over” by EES and Ongoro Nomundu, the project also includes pedagogical workshops with the four cooperating schools as well as an interview series with members of the public about Namibian culture and identity.
The opening event at the Goethe Centre is open to the public and admission is free.
