A single epic narrative unfolds across two songs by Colombian artist Vibarco in this powerful two-part music video. In the double-feature of “Londres” and “Cabron,” Vibarco portrays a streetwise hustler barely scraping by in New York City. Every day is a struggle, and as his relationship with his girlfriend begins to fray as well, he is wracked by insecurity. In order to find purpose and meaning again, he must face a manifestation of his childhood self, who was viciously bullied for his (perceived) lack of masculinity. Lost and alone, Vibarco finds a way to redeem himself in the most unlikely of places: A vicious underground fight club. Led by visions of his younger self, he trains hard and steps into this pit of toxic masculinity…clad in bold, flamboyant garb that turns everyone against him. He faces a brutal and relentless opponent and is nearly beaten unconscious. But with the help of his younger self, he rallies and turns the tables — but stops himself from kicking the man while he is down. Bloodied but triumphant, he wanders into the midnight streets with a newfound sense of peace.
Note: This is a double-feature music video. Two music videos for two songs telling a singular story.
