Jamila Woods announces her first album in four years, The water made us, featuring the single “Tiny Garden” featuring duendita. “Tiny Garden is a song about the way my heart works, the slow and steady way that I love,” she said in a statement. In my early days as a director, I wanted to create a visual representation of how I often feel in relationships, like I have huge feelings that I end up expressing in small, specific ways. The video unfolds through two landscapes, the reality of a shared apartment at the end of winter and an imaginary “heart space” where everything is green and lush. I worked with my friend and frequent collaborator Po Chop on the choreography, so that movement became the key to merging these two worlds – everywhere I dance, something is watering, something is growing.
