From moms to fighting cholitas

Milky Chance’s latest video “Firebird” depicts the power, boldness, and heroism of Bolivian women. We see women from all walks of life, from moms to fighting cholitas, who are leaving their own socio-political footprint. Directed by Anthony Molina, the video was filmed in the city of El Alto:

“We were inspired and totally hooked by the power and charisma that these women of Bolivia carry out every day” explained Clemens Rehbein. “They’re making a socio-political statement by just doing their own thing and that‘s something we admire and wanted to be seen.”

“Firebird” is from the German duo’s sophomore record Blossom, which was released back in March 17, 2017. The duo is on tour now:
