Set in the delicate landscape of South West India, Lavinia Noel's video for Just Us's Cloud Busting shadows a young girl who dreams of nothing else than learning her native form of martial arts - Kalaripayattu.

It sets out to empower women/young girls and demonstrate that through courage, determination and spirit - anything is possible.

LAVINIA NOEL: 

"When I heard the track, I wanted to create something uplifting and powerful, exploring different elements of Indian culture - specifically in the south of India. I researched into the martial art Kalaripayattu which is predominantly taught in the South of India and after speaking to a few different people out in India, I learned that not many females participate in the martial art which I felt was very influential when I wrote the idea."
