Berlin-based electronic music producer Parra for Cuva has carved a unique position as an artist, who brought a truly original sound to electronic music by mixing emotional dance floor experimentations with acoustic and ethnic soundscapes. Over the last few years he’s become a staple of chilled out electronic playlists and club nights alike.
Now he brings us the music video for his latest release “Manila Palm” lifted from his latest LP Juno. The music video, directed by the Brazilian-Japanese, Rodrigo Inada provides the images to a mysterious Berlin-tale. Depictions of quotidian urban youth activities – clubs, chatter, and dancing – are juxtaposed with a speeding birds-eye-view of the city.
The video is part of a longer narrative created by Inada which spans several of the album’s tracks and follows a young girl who sets out in search of her fleeting eagle. The eagle acts as a portal to diverse scenes of the cityscape, spanning the mundane to the characteristically Berliner. The girl’s search of her bird symbolises the various longings, and cravings people coming to Berlin hope to fulfil. “Manila Palm” is an ode to a city, whose unique energy is made-up of people’s searches and desires.
