Kali Uchis is circling back to her earlier EP Por Vida for her latest visual. Taking viewers to Pereira, Colombia for her new video, Uchis gives us a glimpse at the region her bloodline originates from. The video for “Ridin Round” was filmed by Cumbia Films’ Felipe Holguin and Kali Uchis herself. Breaking down today’s release to Noisey, Uchis had the following to say:
“‘Ridin Round’ is about accepting your past and everything you are, even the not so good parts…I wanted to highlight where I’m from (in Colombia), my culture, and real people. There are no actors, the family in the video is my family. We filmed the parade on the street I used to live on when I was little. The production team, Cumbia Films, was an all-Colombian team based out of Cartagena. It was a lot of fun to make this with my family and involve everyone, I never felt so happy making a video.”
