Synopsis: A Colombian-American couple seeks to benefit animal sanctuaries abroad while developing opportunities for artists in their home city of Philadelphia.

Presenting Somos Artesina, a short profile about the Philadelphia-based creative product brand ArtesinA.

Yuli and Andrés launched their dream of a handcrafted product brand with a mission to benefit animal sanctuaries in South America, and in so doing discovered a vibrant community of creatives in the City of Brotherly Love.

Producer Sean Ongley let them tell their story and visited their garden party benefit event where they provided free market space for artisan vendors.

Just as the double meaning of the title denotes that we all have artistry within us (somos means “we are” in Spanish), the style of music known as Cumbia is a beautifully open style of music that integrates musical traditions from all over the world.

Sean produced the original theme music for the show and this adjoining music video, entirely produced with b-roll from the Somos Artesina.

These videos were produced solely by Sean Ongley.
