Black Pumas Share ‘Colors (Juneteenth Session)’ Video
Black Pumas released the “Colors (Juneteenth Session)” video filmed at their studio in Texas. The band shared the performance in honor of Juneteenth, the holiday celebrating the day slavery ended in Texas.
“Colors” was originally released by Black Pumas on their self-titled debut studio album in 2019. The group consists of Eric Burton and Adrian Quesada, who are joined by keyboardist JaRon Marshall and backing vocalists AJ Haynes and Tamisha Waden from their touring band for the “Juneteenth Session” performance of “Colors.”
Read a statement by the band about the video:
We wanted to share this video to further highlight the Texas Holiday known as Juneteenth or Emancipation Day. June 19th or Juneteenth marks the day in 1865 when slaves in Texas were notified about the signing of The Emancipation Proclamation in 1862, marking the end of slavery two and half years prior. Throughout the years, the celebration spread to neighboring states and the holiday is now observed in 48 states.
