»Yoruba Odyssey« is the first visual output of Jessica Comis’ sound project ONDA.

The title track of her soon-to-be released EP positions itself between dreams and reality, artifice and nature, quiet contemplation and relentless searching. Inspired by tales of explorers and pirates, this odyssey illustrates the relevance of fiction and myth in relation to the insecurity of the present moment, the sound acts as a conjuring, luring us away from the drudgery of the mundane and deeper into lush landscapes of the metaphysical

The video piece is part of the collaborative fashion platform »IMAFUTURE.EE« (label by Kreeta Aidla) which will be launched in Fall 2021. The platform is the outcome of Maris Nisu’s diploma research on fashion communication – rooted in exploration, reflexivity, and discussion among female creatives.
