"I've created an album that reinterprets 11 classic Latin American songs from the 1930s-1970s with the goal of introducing this music and its writers to new audiences. The album features songs by musical folk heroes who used music as a way of inspiring social change, including Victor Jara, Ali Primera, Atahualpa Yupanqui, Chavela Vargas, and Os Mutantes."
