Amsterdam-based artist Zanillya portrays her inner battles through stunning choreography in new video “Sacrifices.” As the daughter of disco icon Bobby Farrell (Boney M), Zanillya grew up learning about the realities of the music industry – both the beauty and ugliness of it. The video starts off Zanillya surrounded by the golden and platinum records as the gal starts reflecting on her dreams and hurdles while keeping her inner strength in check. Watch below:
“I’m an independent artist so I had to get over my fears, take a risk and invest in myself. I sat with different directors but I didn’t really feel that someone else could portray my vision. So last minute I made the difficult decision to direct it myself. It was the most amazing and hard thing I have ever done, but because of it I feel so much more empowered. Even though the video didn’t come out completely how I envisioned, I learned sooo much. I think that is the beauty of believing and investing in yourself. You will fall and make mistakes but they will be yours. You can choose to grow and learn from them, or to give up and never reach your own potential.”
The track is from her upcoming debut EP Choose Life, which she’ll be sharing more details soon.
