MARKETA IRGLOVA RELEASES FIRST VIDEO --THE LEADING BIRD— ON SPIN.COM

http://www.spin.com/articles/marketa-irglova-the-leading-bird-video-swell-season/

“Clouds descend on grass grown wild,
Tall and grand, lush in hand.
They bend in air as men in prayer.
I’m weaving through, trying to get to you.”

According to Marketa, "This video was made by our friends in the Refur Creative Production Company, Hörður Sveinsson, Helgi Jóhannsson and Atli Viðar. It was filmed in Iceland and features the beautiful Maria Alejandra Jara De Marco, a wonderful dancer from Paraguay. In this video for a song titled The Leading Bird, co-written by Aida Shahghasemi and me, Maria Alejandra portrays the journey of personal transformation."
