Led by vivacious Mexican-American front-woman Cordelia Vizcaino, tribal fusion band Cordelia & The Buffalo has partnered with Noisey Mexico for the premiere of their “7th Sea” video. Directed by Stewart Yost and The Picture Council, the clip captures the song’s spirit of joyful wanderlust through its striking use of color and symbolism. “Each color represents the different stages and sensations one has to go through to let go of the past and make way for a greater purpose,” Vizcaino explains. “It’s like being in a long distance relationship with your past and future. The White shadows portray the past that still craves to manifest itself. The Orange phase represents the present yearning for a future that feels far from reach. Finally, the Green phase is the prosperous “grass-is-greener-on-the-other-side” future that we all work to attain, and the full identity of my tribal Mexican heritage that inspires my work everyday. This is meant to motivate people to bloom from their own Green phase into who they want to become.” https://youtu.be/7jnweIKMCuI
Taken from the band’s self-titled debut EP, the song “7th Sea” served as the official anthem for the 2015 Copa America international soccer tournament, and has been featured prominiently in campaigns for Havas Worldwide’s VERSY app and the Mexican Tourism board.
Managed by Nils Gums of The Complex Group(Karmin, The Elev3n), the band is recording new music for their next official release. Earlier this year, they performed as part of Wix Music’s SXSW 2016 showcase, after touring China and Korea as part of Dulwich College International’s exchange program. The band has played numerous international music events including Monterrey City Festival and Osheaga Festival, with more dates to come later this year.
