From Iceland — Emilíana Torrini's "Tookah" Music Video

Emilíana Torrini’s “Tookah” Music Video

Published January 20, 2014

Four months after unleashing her latest album ‘Tookah,’ Emilíana Torrini has released a video for the title track, directed by the London-based visual artist group Shynola. In a feature interview with the Grapevine this past August, Emilíana explained the word Tookah’s origin. “It is what the Sufis spin for it is possibly the core of all religions,” she said. “It can be hard to connect with, but then you’re out for a walk and you just feel this gentle gratefulness and happiness. I don’t know. It’s a feeling. I call it Tookah. It’s my birth, my core.” You can read the full interview here.
