Canadian singer Raghav’s latest video “Take Me Away”, funded by MuchFACT, has arrived! The follow-up to his great Spring single “Woohoo” is a refreshing change from your standard music video.

The clip appears to take place in small town South America, but was actually shot outside Vancouver! It tells a story of a young boy heading to a festival where he displays his manhood wearing a vibrant knitted mask. The concept was inspired by the rural Peruvian cultural practice of Takanakuy.

It’s a unique concept paired with a addictive summer jam!
