This is a re-imagination. I remember finding this song, I don't know how, in Peru (it's typical of some of the more dime-a-dozen Peruvian Cumbia tracks you might hear on a bus or outside of a restaurant).

But it grew on me...it seemed to say something so simple and have this dark and expansive magic that I couldn't lose. When I got to working on the album, it said everything I needed to...I just wanted it to feel different.


Yo me enamoré de ti
Sin saber que me amabas

Que lindo son tus ojos
Que dulces son tus labios


I fell in love with you
Without ever knowing you already loved me

How beautiful are your eyes
How sweet are your lips
