This tracks is the best example of global music as it includes colabs from
varied styles of musicians from around the world. It started with an idea of a
Lando guitar riff, which was complemented by the traditional Lando cajon playing of Mangue. Then we invited, Felix Casaverde - RIP (one of the most influential afroperuvian guitar
players and composer, worked with Chabuca Granda) to our studio
and played him the demo of the track. He went nto the recording room and one hour later he came out and told us: now I understand what Novalima is all about, it´s just coming in the studio and experimenting. The horn section was recorded in Australia by our

la noche crece bajo el mar
cuando la luna deja de brillar
la vida mueve, solo dejarse llevar
ya no siento cuando vuelvo para atrás (ya no siento)
