Colombian stars Bomba Estéreo have released the official music video for their single “Tierra.” The video stars Liliana Saumet and Lukas Avendaño, a nonbinary Zapotec indigenous performance artist. “Tierra” was filmed in Oaxaca and directed by Fana Adjani.
“This song and video are an homage to the ancient relationship between humans and the territory we inhabit,” explains Bomba’s founder Simon Mejia. “The earth should belong to everyone, as we belong to her, independent of race, identity or nationality.”
“The ‘Tierra’ video is a project that generates a collective embrace, a series of actions that promote dialogue from the plurality of voices and existence,” shares the director Fana. “It is there, where we find a detonator of hope and action, ecofeminism, the defense of territory, caring for the seed, the ‘muxeidad.’ In the diversity and interculturality is where community is woven and that is where Latin America can be free.”
The song “Tierra” is from Bomba’s recent album ‘Deja.’ “This album has a very special aura,” Simon explains. “It was a community effort, a lot of hands, a lot of hearts giving their energy and talent. This album belongs to the planet, not Bomba. It’s dedicated to everyone that participated. Our band, our team and Daniel Bustos, who commanded all the recording in this beautiful process. May he rest in peace.”
