Ananse Y La Luna rebirths as Elephant Underwater with new music video

The forest has been our friend here in the Sierra Sur of Oaxaca during the coronavirus lockdown. Anisha Aiyappa AKA Ananse Y La Luna can now add another “Also Known As” to that title – ELEPHANT UNDERWATER – as she floats her life and music to deeper levels. She has been busy making videos in caves and playing music in forests and has launched a new blog, Soundcloud channel and YouTube channel!

From her album Tengo Que Cantar comes a brand new free single and music video shot here in the mountains and edited by Adrian Landeros, a filmmaker we are lucky to have as a neighbour.

Check it out, THIS. WILL. TAKE. YOU. PLACES! Contains nudity.
