PERSPECTIVES - UNDER MY SKIN: EMELI SANDE IN SEARCH OF FRIDA KAHLO
In this fascinating documentary the Brit Award-winning singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé goes on a journey through the vibrant streets of Mexico to discover the life of the enigmatic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. Much like the Organik Rocka team, Emeli Sandé is completely captivated by Frida Kahlo, and what her life represented and what she stood for. Emeli has Frida’s expressionless face etched on her forearm, making it a fitting tribute to the name of the programme ‘Under The Skin.’
It was great to see Emeli sporting our People Rocka tee that has been inspired by the greats who stepped up, who had strength, courage and something to say, much like Frida through her art.
Emeli visits the places that inspired her and meets people who knew Frida when she was an anonymous, politically active young woman. At the time, Emeli had just quit medical school to write her first album and, seeking inspiration, saw Kahlo as a woman who had triumphed over adversity. An emotional Sandé discovers how her true heroine overcame tragedy, heartbreak and physical injury to help influence her surrealist self portraits to become one of the worlds best-known artists, a trait that the Scottish singer emulates in her own art music. Emeli Sande in search of Frida Kahlo was the 4th episode in the 6 part series Perspectives on ITV.
