“Last Sunday Mirella suggested that we do a job from scratch. I went to the piano, I started to play something, pulling chords on the guitar, something that helps people get them out of depression, “says Parra.
Mejía, who lives in Kentucky (USA), says that it was Parra who invited him to join the production, which he was in charge of the urban part. “I liked the concept and it had a rhythm that lent itself to a happy rap, so I signed up,” explains the interpreter of Rico Suave, who hopes that the song will remind compatriots that it doesn’t take much to be happy.
For his part, Cesa relates that the collaboration took place spontaneously between the three. “To carry this message of love, hope and positivism I think that today is what we need. Although it is true we are going through a very hard circumstance, very difficult, everyone, each one from his house, from what is happening in his family, we must also have that side of giving something positive to inject that into the environment and invoke that soon the cure for this terrible evil arrives ”, he adds.
Cesa put his andipop touch on the charango while Parra added a ukulele and, along with Mejía, giving it, through his own musical identities, a hopeful sound for the audience at this time. (AND)
