Дeva lulls us to sleep with Ágnes Nemes Nagy’s poem in her latest music video

A few days ago, Dorina Takács, aka Дeva, released her latest song Emilyen, and besides the lyrics, the video of the song also caught the attention of many. The song is special because it was written for the 100th anniversary of the birth of Ágnes Nemes Nagy, one of the most significant Hungarian female literary authors, Kossuth Prize-winning poet, and essayist. The children’s poem ‘Kerti tó’ (Garden Lake—the Transl.) is set to the familiar folktronica house rhythms of Дeva, coupled with a psychedelic and hypnotic visual world.


The new song invites us on a journey of meditative yet bittersweet melancholy, where we can immerse ourselves in this psychedelic visual and aural experience for a few minutes. In this surreal space, the cycle of life unfolds before our eyes. “We can walk in a pulsating microcosm with the animations of Szandra Zságer-Mészáros and Kati Katona,” wrote Telekom Electronic Beats in an interview about the clip. “In our lives, change is the only constant, and we ‘float in this universe like tiny grains of dust’, and this is the kind of continuity that the girls tried visualize,” Dorina says of the video’s concept.

This is also the first song where, in addition to her positive energy, she tried to capture a negative feeling and transform it with her music, so that it might be easier for others to process it. However, life is beautiful when it’s colorful, just like Emilyen.

In the near future, Dorina would like to stage an acoustic band in addition to her solo projects, but at the beginning of the year she will be taking a few months off to explore new sounds. In the meantime, she will perform at MOMkult in Budapest, where she will close a truly successful year with the Hari Drama Quintet and other guests.
