Shinobi Ninja | Image courtesy of puregrainaudio.comBrooklyn-based band Shinobi Ninja’s music video ‘What If Times’ features colourful imagery, upbeat vocals and an inspiring message.

Filmed from beginning to end on a cellphone, the video features children, in an effort to instil confidence in youth right from their prime.

In symbolic connection with the message of the song to love yourself and others, the band’s female lead Baby G is shown wearing a t-shirt that reads “Love Yourself”.

The 6-member band, who draw inspiration from various music genres – rock, hip-hop, funk, reggae, EDM and much more – was formed in 2008 and released their fourth album ‘Bless Up’ in March 2017.

With the ability to convey thought-provoking messages without compromising artistic talents, Shinobi Ninja is refreshingly reflecting who they are in their work without any gimmicks.
