rebelEmer­ging Sydney MC Zeadala invites us to ques­tion sys­tem­ic struc­tures with a polit­ic­al new single ‘Your Hands’ fea­tur­ing Mack Fyah.

Pro­duced by Fermi, ’Your Hands’ came about as Zeadala noticed the Aus­trali­an dis­ap­point­ment and dis­trust of almost every nation­al insti­tu­tion was at an all time high and she real­ised some­thing needed to change.

On the single, Zeadala said, “The lack of dis­cus­sion and cit­izen out­rage around this is reflect­ive of our dis­trust and dis­ap­point­ment. We don’t expect any bet­ter. What can we do? Our flaky insti­tu­tions encour­age dis­pir­ited cit­izens and our polit­ic­al debates lose their energy, coher­ence and we end up with bad pub­lic policies. But we can make a change. Civil soci­ety, our major­ity, indi­vidu­als, have the abil­ity to cre­ate change,”

On a per­son­al level, Zeadala invites us to instead ques­tion sys­tem­ic struc­tures that makes one feel inferi­or, or less than. And for us to move from crip­pling self doubt and reframe it towards self belief, self love and a trust in one’s own inher­ent power.

This unique col­lab­or­a­tion between Zeadala, Mack Fyah and Fermi reminds us to pick up that pen, write that let­ter, poem, song, to write our inten­tions, our wishes, to make that pray­er. Pos­it­ive change begins in the palm of our hands.

Zeadala has nev­er been one to shy away from embra­cing her ‘dif­fer­ent­ness’ and address­ing the many social justice and polit­ic­al issues present in our soci­ety as she con­tin­ues to work with com­munit­ies and con­nect to her audi­ences through her raw and haunt­ingly hon­est music.
