Rituel – Nirvana Dance Video Directed By Bruno Fontana (Avant-première)


The video tells a love story inside the Indian community in Paris. After a poetic fight during which he receives support from Rama, the mythical king, Tashi manages to touch the heart of the beautiful Mia.

A few words from the director: “When I first listened to Nirvana Dance, I was immediately captivated by the Indian, spiritual atmosphere of the song. It felt obvious to relate a love story impregnated with Indian references. That’s why I imagined this modern romance, on a background of Hindu legends and passion for cricket.”

A few words from the band: “The vocals of the song are a verse in Sanskrit from the Bhagavad Gita (the central part of the epic Mahabharata, which was traditionally sung). It tells the triumph of spirituality over materialism, in a battle fought within each of us. Everyone is encouraged to follow his own heart, before any other considerations.”
