Video Title:
Kokayi – “Only” at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival
Description:
At the 2019 Smithsonian Folklife Festival on the National Mall, D.C. artist Kokayi performed “Only,” which he describes as “a song about being the life of the party and lonely at the same time.“ “I like to deal with issues of mental health in my music as I’ve dealt with depression throughout my life,” Kokayi said in an interview. “I’ve said it before: I like to write happy-sounding sad songs.” Camera: Colin Stucki, David Barnes, Harry Zhu, Lauren Jackson, Pruitt Allen Editing: Xueying Chang [Catalog No. CFV11230; © Smithsonian Institution, 2019]
