Safe Place – Kiana V, Directed by Saint
An 88Rising and Paradise Rising project, Safe Place is Kiana V’s message that she’s becoming her own artist. The music video was created during the height of the pandemic in the US, “We went into production for Safe Place in November 2019 and…we kind of didn’t know when or how we will release it. So, this whole opportunity with Paradise Rising was a lifesaver for all of us.”
Sasagipin Kita – Darren Espanto, Directed by Jiggy Gregorio
Another song released during the pandemic, Sasagipin Kita dives into people’s troubled feelings during that time. The ballad’s melancholic tone and touching lyrics becomes a powerful song complete with a band to tie it all together. An extended version of the music video was released that portrayed three individuals’ true life experiences in their journey of hardship to finding strength and hope.
