Argentinian singer-songwriter Juana Molina released her new music video for her song “Sin Guía, No.” Directed by Argentine filmmaker/artist Dr Sepian, the video was shot in Tierra de Fuego, at the southernmost tip of the South American continent. It’s inspired by the Hain initiation ceremonies which used to be performed by the Shelknam people, who were among the original inhabitants of Patagonia. Young men on the verge of puberty were sent out alone in the forest, and had to perform a series of tasks (such as hunting, or fighting demons of the forest) before being considered as grown men and allowed to come back to the fold of the tribe.
“Sin Guía, No” can be found off Molina’s latest album, Wed 21, released in October 2013 via Brussels-based label Crammed Discs. The label has also reissued Molina’s back catalog that includes her four previous albums: Segundo (originally released in 2000), Tres Cosas (2002), Son (2006) and Un Día (2008). All of Molina’s albums are now available through all main digital stores worldwide, as well as on Crammed’s online store.
