23-year-old artist Candace Camacho, professionally known as duendita, creates the type of music that you might find yourself listening to during a period of immense self-discovery. Her music is so spiritually infused it’s difficult to describe the idiosyncratic flare that she injects into her artistry. Last year she released her debut project, direct line to My Creator, to much critical applause – a beautifully crafted 10-track EP that speaks to the heart, soul, and mind through blending everyday experiences surrounding her identity, spirituality, and ancestral past. Now the artist has returned with a divinely crafted visual for “Magdalena,” which aptly dives into these various thematic underlays.

The new music video utilizes the hymn-like track in a distinctive manner, providing a video that follows two cousins during an average day in their Queens neighborhood, followed by a mysterious being that the artist states is a characterization of both grief and faith. Inspired by Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away, and a variety of other anime that depicts “beautiful fictions of death and transcendence,” the new visual for Camacho’s euphorically-melancholic cut offers a gratifying look at what it means to be human.

You can check out the music video for duendita’s “Magdalena” above.

In case you missed it, Tierra Whack just dropped her latest single “Wasteland.”
