Shot on location in Bermuda at the Cathedral by Method Media for The Department of Culture, “Gold (Bermudian)” celebrates the 2021 Tokyo Olympic gold medal won by Flora Duffy in the Triathlon making Bermuda the tiniest nation to ever bring home gold. This makes the second medal for the small but mighty nation marking Clarence Hill as the bronze medal winner in the 1976 games for boxing. Katura Horton Perinchief is the first female human of a darker hue to make it to the Olympics for diving with Jessica Lewis as a multi medal and gold medal winner of the Paralympics. All three hail from the British Independent Territory. This song is a celebration of Bermuda and its resilience!
