about

Recorded at Moon Canyon Sound in Mt. Washington, Los Angeles, this collection of songs results from Omar Velasco's exploration of songwriting in Spanish, his native tongue. This music is influenced by Afro-cuban, Latin American and Brazilian rhythms- and by such artists as Milton Nascimento, Silvio Rodriguez, and Mercedes Sosa.

Track Name: Va (Fuerza Natural)
Es un arroyo sin final
Una serpiente en espiral
Es una rosa al marchitar
Una semilla al germinar
Es el verso que lleva adentro
Cada hombre al respirar
Es el latido, es el aliento
Una fuerza natural

Va por el viento y el mar
Va sobre el bien y el mal
Llevas el don en el corazón
Va y que va y que va

Es el silencio y el sonido
El sufrimiento y el alivio
Es la penumbra muda y ciega
El alba núbil que se entrega
Al rito del conocimiento
Necesidad que lleva adentro
El ser humano al existir
Su razón de vivir

Va por el viento y el mar
Va sobre el bien y el mar
Llevas el don en el corazón
Va y que va y que va...
