Mia Doi Todd – The Making of Floresta

Los Angeles singer-songwriter Mia Doi Todd left California to record her new album Floresta at São Paulo’s Estúdio El Rocha studios. This is a short making-of video, introducing some of the musicians involved in the recording, such as multi-instrumentalist Maurício Takara, guitarist Fabiano do Nascimento, percussionist Rogério Martins, and bass player Meno del Picchia. The album features 10 songs written by some of Mia’s favourite Brazilian songwriters and will be out on her City Zen label in mid-September.

Here comes a new video from Mia Doi Todd, Los Angeles-based “future folk” singer and collaborator of such cats as Prefuse 73, Build An Ark, Flying Lotus or Dntel.

The video was directed by the one and only Michel Gondry, the genius behind Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep or Block Party. Not to mention his countless videos for Björk, Massive Attack or Daft Punk.
