With Six Grammy Award nominations and a number one dance single under her belt, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Debi Nova is already a massive star in her native Costa Rica. Now she is ready to make her mark on the rest of the world. In March 2010, Decca Records will release Nova’s debut album Luna Nueva. The video for the first single “Drummer Boy” was filmed in the beautiful Vasquez Rocks State Park in California. The video is visually stimulating capturing this exciting artist’s magnetism, charisma, and presence. Nova is featured dancing the freestyle, energetic murga a street/carnival dance from Uruguay and Argentina, including the borracho, or drunk dance, often done to express the joy of life. Director Thomas Kloss brings to life this vibrant, passionate and playful, hip-hop-inspired song, with gorgeous landscapes, and the natural environment as Debis backdrop. Kloss has contributed directing and/or photography credits on an impressive array of music videos from superstars including The Pussycat Dolls, Justin Timberlake, Marilyn Manson and Jennifer Lopez to name a few.
MTV just added the video into rotation on the network. The Costa Rican beauty will also be a featured artist on the MTV Tr3s Descubre & Download platform beginning February 15th.
Stay tuned for Debi’s hybrid (Spanish/Engilsh) debut album, Luna Nueva, due out this spring.
