Today, Mexican-Dominican Latin soul songstress Ambar Lucid returns with the visual for “Un Animal (Divina Existencia)”.
The video for the already entrancing track takes viewers on a journey to a mystic forest where magic and music intertwine. Exploring the constraints of the mind and the concept of breaking through the bounds of societal and individual expectations, the video highlights the act of both thinking and getting out of the ‘box’ we are often placed.

Showcasing her eclectic sound and dynamic lyricism, Ambar continues to defy norms and solidify herself at the forefront of the new wave of Indie Latinx artists in America, with no plans to slow down. Drawing inspiration from Ambar’s own passion for astrology and tarot card reading, Get Lost In The Music EP incorporates Hispanic staples and effortlessly slips between Spanish and English when it suits her mood or composition. With her music and visuals, Ambar effectively draws an image of her culture and upbringing.
