Video: Mia Doi Todd – “Canto de Iemanja”


“Canto de Iemanja” is easily our favorite track off Mia Doi Todd’s most recent album, Cosmic Ocean Ship. Hopefully you caught our free download for it back in August, and if not, get to it!

Flowy, sparkly swirls in the sun make up the focal point for the tropical track’s video. More precisely, however, Iemanjá is the Orisha (Goddess) of the ocean in Yoruba tradition, and represents divine consciousness, healing, unconditional love, feminine creativity and the essence of motherhood. The rituals taking place in the video depict a look into her saint’s day celebration that occurs every year on February 2nd.
