Exhibit B: El Guincho’s video for “Bombay,” from his album Pop Negro, 2010.

Remember those elements you were supposed looking for? Here the vignettes are more syncopated and less sensical, which, of course, makes more sense in terms of an aesthetic statement. After a while, even the melodies runneth together.  El Guincho is the gold standard for absurdism and this is his most memorable moment, but alas, Russia is apparently still a remote land. Nice homage.
