Pianist, composer and arranger Carolina Calvache on her new album: "Vida Profunda is an ode to poetry and to life.
The chosen poems and my original lyrics are the best vehicles for me to open my heart to the world because they relate to events that happened in my life or to people close to me. The title song comes from the poem Canción de la Vida Profunda (Song of the Profound Life) by Colombian writer Porfirio Barba Jacob. The second title "El Pájaro Yo" (The Me Bird) has the same name as the original poem by Chilean writer Pablo Neruda. The text of the song "Hope" is extracted from the poem "Lift every voice and sing" by African-American poet James Weldon Johnson.
The song "Childhood Retreat" is based on the poem with the same name written by American poet Robert Duncan. "El Rastro" is extracted from the short story "El Rastro de tu sangre en la nieve" (The trail of your blood in the snow) by Colombian writer Gabriel Garcia Márquez. The song "Let Me Come With You" is extracted by the poem "Moonlight Sonata" by Greek poet Yiannis Ritsos. The original songs "No te vi crecer", "Te conocí de nuevo", "Stella", "Sin un Despido", are some of my stories and my first attempt to write lyrics." // The album features the voices of Ruben Blades, Claudia Acuña, Sara Serpa, Marta Gomez, Aubrey Johnson, Haydee Milanes, Sara Serpa, Lara Bello, Luba Mason, Sofia Ribeiro.
