The mobile device maker Nokia is known for connecting people. For film and music lovers, Nokia Music is presenting its documentary series that mixes real music scenes with a personal touch of perspectives from the fans of eclectic musicians.
With new smartphones emerging, the brand has come out with its newest addition, Nokia Music. Nokia Music, which is available on the various Lumia smartphones, allows users to tune into trending music all over the U.S. without subscription or registration.
Four independent filmmakers—Abteen Bagheri, Emily Kai Bok, Bob Harlow and Tyrone Lebon—captured a multitude of music scenes in six different cities across America. The documentary series tells a story of music’s transformation and the perspectives of music fanatics.
Each director captured footage from different cities ranging from Kia Bok’s footage from New York City’s alternative hip-hop culture to Bagheri’s footage from the underground music scene in New Orleans. Depending on the music culture, the series portrays the varying evolutions, alterations and obstacles in the six different cities.
Gary Clark, Jr.’s critically acclaimed song “Bright Lights” from his album Blak and Blu is featured in all promos and closing credits of the documentary series. An Austin native, Clark is known for his blues, rock, soulful and dream-like music. His album Blak and Blu has reached a peak as number 1 on the Billboard Chart of Blues Albums.
Nokia Music and Sundance Channel have partnered up to show the documentary series. The films begin airing on Sundance Channel in January.
