about

I dedicate the first album, "ALMA," which in Spanish means “SOUL,” to the strength, perseverance, courage and commitment of all indigenous people to make this planet a better place. I dedicate this album to the undeniable love that moves us and inspires our every sensation, thought, word and action. I dedicate this work to all the medicines of the Earth. It is an album full of gratitude to all the visible and invisible, material and non-material, spiritual and physical, nurturing and sustaining elements of life. “ALMA” is a collection of original songs inspired by the Andean Healing Tradition of the Americas. It is an invitation to sing the Cantos that live within us as offerings to the Earth and Stars."ALMA" is my first Album and the first production of the Canta Colibrî Project.

Track Name: Agüita
Agüita que corres por mis venas, agüita de la vida
Agüita que corres por las montañitas, encendida
Agüita que todo lo transforma
agüita que da la bendición
Agüita curandera, agüita de luna y de sol
Agüita de la vida, agüita del corazón
Agüita madre abuela, agüita de la tradición
Agüita de los hombres, agüita del por venir
Agüita de las mujeres, casa primera antes de parir
Agüita que corres por mis piernas, agüita de la vida
Agüita que corres por mis montañitas, encendida
Agüita que todo lo transforma
agüita que da la bendición
Agüita curandera, agüita de luna y de sol

Water that runs through my veins…water of life
Water that runs free over the mountains…enlighten
Water that transforms everything
Water that blesses everything it touches
Healing water, water of the sun and moon
Water of life, dear water of the heart
Mother, grandmother water, water of tradition
Water of the men, water to come
Water of the women, home of self before birth
Water that runs over my thighs, water of life
Water that runs through my mountains, on fire
Water that transforms all, water that blesses all
Healing water, water of sun and moon

Track Name: Caballito Multicolor
Por toda la, por toda la, por toda la cordillera
Vengo montando, vengo montando
Vengo montando mi caballito azul
Viene cargado de flores y esperanza
Viene contando las estrellitas de Norte a Sur
Por toda la, por toda la, por toda la cordillera
Vengo montando, vengo montando
Vengo montando mi caballito azul
Lo guían la luna y el sol en sus adentros
Lo guían la piedra, el árbol y el viento
Lo guían las estrellitas de mar
Abriendo surcos para su caminar
Ay caballito de mil colores
Nunca dejes de volar
Ay cordillera de mis amores
Nunca dejes de cantar (danzar) (2x)
Y por las noches mi caballito se pone a soñar
Y escucha historias de sus abuelas - a despertar!
Ay caballito de mil colores
Nunca dejarás de volar
Ay cordillera de mis amores
Nunca dejarás de cantar (danzar) (2x)
Por toda la, por toda la, por toda la cordillera

Throughout all the cordillera
I ride my dear blue horse
It comes full of flowers and hope
Counting stars from North to South
Throughout all the cordillera
I ride my dear blue horse
Guided by the moon and sun within
Guided by the stone, the tree and the wind
Guided by the ocean stars
Which open channels of water for her path
Dear horse of thousand colors
Never stop flying
Dear cordillera of my heart
Never stop singing (dancing) (2x)
And when nighttime comes
My dear horse dreams of the stories
Of her grandmothers and grandfathers
Time to wake up! they sing!
Dear horse of thousand colors
You will never stop flying
Dear cordillera of my heart
You will never stop singing (dancing) (2x)
For all of the cordilleras
