Onnalee- Filmed in Eritrea

This is just the original demo of the song, but I thought it fit better to the video. Filmed at a special Eritrean baptism on Palm Sunday, we were able to join, shoes off, women dressed in their beautiful white cloth… it was an extraordinary experience (and also the album cover photo). In Eritrea half of the people practice Christianity, the other half are Muslim. It’s a beautiful dichotomy.

Onnalee is my grandmother who passed away a few months before. The concept of travel here is not geographical, but more a spiritual departure from this life to the next “destination.” I love her so much!
