about

An upbeat merengue caraqueño with a catchy hook that tells the tale of the flight of a dream bird. Merengue was a very popular and controversial musical style in 1920s Caracas. Insolito Universo transform this early urban style by giving it a retro-futuristic touch, adding harpsichords, synthesisers, electric bass and drums.

lyrics

Pájaro, pájaro bandido,
Pájaro, pájaro escondido.
Rebasando nombres,
Pájaro entendido (bis)

Pa, pa, pa….

Se te oye sin verte,
Al verte tu callas.
Vuelves de la muerte
Desde el grito, el ala.

Qué está diciendo tu pecho?
Qué está callando tu pico?
Entre dos alas.
Pájaro hablándole al olvido.

Pa, pa, pa….

Pájaro, pájaro hablador,
Pájaro, pájaro encendido.
Jugando a la candelita
en el aire temblador.
Un canto pobre te sigue
Mudo y ciego en su candor

Qué está tejiendo tu vuelo?
Qué está cortando pluma?
Entre dos ramas.
Pájaro vendido,
Pájaro rendido al silencio mejor.
Pa, pa, pa…
