Jungle Drum

Freshness and authenticity are two things that can describe this great artist Emiliana Torrini. She became massively known with the album Fisherman’s Woman (released in 2005) but the truth is that you all have heard her music before, through her collaborations with artists such as Thievery Corporation, Slovo and P.Oakenfold.

For this video the director James Price envisaged a fantastic jungle made entirely of paper through which Emiliana and her band would journey. Every single tree, flower and leaf was hand crafted by the art department, creating a spectactular result of a magical, multicoloured jungle.
Credits to Price James: direction. Bryony Birkbeck, Anna Lomax: art direction.

Her vivid smile, the way she prenounces and articulates words and her songs’ storytelling (check out Unemployed In Summertime or Gun) combine the figure of truly unique artist.
