“Yesh’ Te” and a Live Rising at St. Vitus

breadwoman_yesh_te_still_002

In the video for “Yesh’ Te,” directed by Ramez Silvan, Breadwoman traces footsteps through her old Los Angeles home over three decades since her arrival. Slowly acclimating to the sprawling cityscape of modern-day LA, Breadwoman stands and sits, statuesque and unaffected by the wears of time, throughout public spaces as passerby stare in awe at her ancient grace. Watch it now:
