about

A song grounded in the afro-venezuelan rhythm of San Millán. It features a guest appearance by Venezuelan master percussionist, Orlando Poleo on clarín drum and its lyrics are taken from a poem written by Eugenio Montejo and his admiration for the landscape that surrounds the banks of any mighty river of Venezuela.

lyrics

Estas voces que digo
han rodado por siglos puliéndose en sus aguas,
fuera del tiempo.
Son ecos de los muertos que me nombran
y me recorren como peces.

Yo soy mi río, mi claro río que pasa
a tumbos en las piedras.
Me circundan las horas y las ondas,
no sé adónde me arrastran,
desconozco mi fin y mi comienzo,
voy cruzando mi cuerpo como el arco de un puente.

Las nubes me siguen por los campos
con cálidos reflejos.
Entre los árboles derivo, entre los hombres;
sólo traje a la tierra este rumor
para cruzar el mundo,
lo he sentido crecer al fondo de mis venas.

Yo soy mi río, mi claro río que pasa
y me lleva sin tregua.
Sé que existe un navío
que cruza a mis espaldas;
palpo sus velas en mi sueño;
sigo la estela que deja en su camino,
pero no sé que busca entre mi cauce
ni quién va a bordo
ni cuándo llegaremos.
