about

A composition inspired by the Venezuelan waltz and the works of Conny Mendez, a Venezuelan eccentric from the 20th century, who composed and sung traditional music in Caracas, in addition to being a caricaturist & actress, and revered by some as a metaphysical new-Age guru. The piece is based on an ascending melodic line, as an elevation towards other forms of consciousness, and the title is inspired by a famous Venezuelan new-age phrase "Llama violeta, transmutadora!"

lyrics

El vértigo en ruina
No esperaba la hora del mambo.
Contamos un, dos, tres
Y solté la jauría.
El vértigo en ruina
Se cayó de una mata de mango,
De una casa para armar
Y sembrarla de día.
Amanecí de bala,
El vértigo sin ala (bis)
Cómo fue?... Cómo fue? …
Fue el amarillo del maíz,
Fue la perla del diente y de la frente,
Fue eso y fue todo, fue eso y fue nada.
El vértigo en ruina,
No esperaba la hora del mambo.
El mundo es una esponja y su revés:
Dando, robando, dando
El mundo es una esponja y su revés:
Dando, tú ves!
