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.

Mia Doi Todd has an incredibly soothing sound; it’s as if any sound that exits her lips becomes a gorgeous lullaby. Her music is folky, soulful, and global, traversing Cuba, Brazil, Mexico, France, and India.

You may recognize Mia from the recent Captain Planet “Paraty” remix we posted, the Red Hot + Rio 2 project, or her “All My City” video we shared back in June.

Today, we share with you a live clip of Mia’s beautiful performance of “Um Girassol da Cor do Seu Cabelo” from Red Hot + Rio 2.

Also, we are pleased to share an exclusive free download from her most recent album, Cosmic Ocean Ship – “Canto de Iemanjá” is an Afro Samba tribute to the great Orisha of the Ocean by Baden Powell and Vinícius de Moraes.
