San Diego, CA – San Diego based alt-pop songstress and producer Lena Belle is not holding back with an enticing music video for her Valentine’s Day single release “Rainbow.” To Belle, the video directed by septuagenarian surrealist feminist multimedia artist Penny Slinger, depicts freedom of the human spirit, the Hopi prophecy of the rainbow, queer acceptance and pride, and the coming together of humanity. The video is covered with rainbow lights, heart-warming messages, and imagery of Buddha.
The song itself, set for release on Valentine’s Day, on all platforms (some links will only come online with tomorrow’s release) is an homage to the Native American prophecy of the rainbow, that states:
“When the Earth is ravaged and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people will come unto the Earth from many colors, classes, and creeds and who by their actions and deeds shall make the Earth green again. They will be known as the ‘Warriors of the Rainbow’”.
Lena notes, “As I was writing this song, I was getting images of the prophecy of the rainbow, the prophesized Rainbow warriors rising up, planting the seeds for a bright future for humanity and the Earth. And I started seeing little Buddhas in everyone.” She adds, “I believe Buddha is just the enlightened nature in everyone. Buddha is not a specific man but that supreme consciousness we all have within ourselves. I don’t believe we have to wait for anyone to save us. We are our own saviors. I don’t need to be healed. I just need to allow myself to remember who I am.”
The song also prominently features the classic Sanskrit prayer, Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu which translates as “May all beings be happy and free, and may the thoughts, words and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and freedom for all.”

After studying classical music at the Eastman School of Music, Lena Belle returned to her home town of San Diego and decided to devote herself fully to her original music. She started building an organic fanbase by performing at local venues, bars, restaurants, hotels, and more. She then decided to jump into the fray, moving to New York City. There she performed all over Manhattan and Brooklyn at original music shows, jam sessions, poetry events, showcases, gardens, healing events, and elsewhere. She also became known for her stunning renditions of Edith Piaf songs performed with charming musicality in her fluent French.
Beginning in 2015 with her self-penned, co-produced EP “My Own Way”, she has been carving her own path in the music industry. Then after the release of her single, “Nature Knows” in 2019, her listener base grew, and she now has thousands listening to her music in 78 countries across the globe.
She is currently completing her first full length album with her co-producers Tazdeen Rashid (who is well known as one of the world’s top yoga DJs, DJ Taz Rashid), transformational festival favorite Patrick Kiebzak (Momentology), and noted NYC producer and keys player Kurt Thum (Usher, Nick Jonas, Kelsea Ballerini).
