Italian dark folk solo artist Lili Refrain has unveiled a brand new music video for the song »Ahi Tapu« from her latest studio album, »Mana«, out on April 21st, 2022 via Subsound Records.

Directed, filmed and edited by Carlo Settembrini.

Lili Refrain comments: “It’s with great joy and emotion that I introduce you »Ahi Tapu«!!!!!!

This video would not exist without the precious contribution of the Teatro Cantiere which not only hosted us in its camp protecting our Fire from the summer inquisition, but also they revealed us all the wonder of Piana Crixia, an extraordinary place in Italy, between Liguria and Piemonte so rich in history, with amazing natural parks and sublime breathtaking badlands where »Ahi Tapu« was filmed.

I had the infinite honor and the boundless pleasure of collaborating not only with excellent professionals but also with Dear Friends, who created a really big Ritual with me!

Eternally grateful to the masterful Carlo Settembrini for confirming once again the unsurpassed director and photographer that he is. He followed and guided us, leaving us free to improvise and play, and you can see the result for yourself!

»Ahi Tapu« is the word that defines the transformation rituals related to Fire, the primordial element that has always accompanied living beings in their metamorphosis.

Vesta del Fuoco could not miss it! I performed with him for a very intense Tuscan period linking my sounds to his fiery art, it was really essential to have his guide and have him by our side and that of his flaming element!
I sincerely thank the splendid and incomparable Sasori Komomo for having created my definitive and beautiful logo that you can see in this video and that from now on you will find many others time around then!

This song is part of my new album »Mana« wonderfully recorded by Stefano Morabito at 16th Cellar Studio in Rome and out with Subsound Records in 2022.”
