Toronto based emcee/producer, XOLISA returns with the 2nd video release off of her self-produced debut album, “And Gaps Do Lead To Bridges”, entitled, “Here”.

Filmed, directed and edited by the emcee herself in both Toronto (Canada) and Melbourne (Australia), “Here” stands as yet another layer revealed in the, “And Gaps Do Lead To Bridges” story.

The emcee consciously chooses to keep the focus of the videos imagery less on her physical image, and more on the symbolism she creates using structures, buildings and objects to emphasize her lyricism through a series of abstract images carefully shot, intentionally placed and rapidly delivered in the video’s “fast-cutting” style of editing.

This single holds so many layers of truths in acknowledging where I am now as an individual, acknowledging where we are now as an entire human race – all the while acknowledging where we, Black men and women, are now in the midst of it all in our own evolution of unlearning and rebuilding. It was important for me to show each of those layers, through the symbolism of this music video. Xolisa
