All the songs on this album are styles or traditional songs from Venezuela.
Dedicated to all the good people from Venezuela who fight for freedom. The idea of making this album came to me after being a protester/fighter in 2017 during the bloody protests in Caracas, after seeing so many people getting arrested, killed, emigrating to other countries (in exile) and the people who are living there struggling in the results of the dictator and tyrant regime. All the energy to make a change and impotence are reflected in these arrangements.

I saw Yvette and the wonderful Covet at ArctTangent 2019, their performance was magical and the band had such a great synergy of talented musicians. I got this album pretty soon after and it has had many consistent listens in three months, never gets dull. It's like dream music so much of the time, and indeed is a nice set of tunes to nod off to.
