Marco Romero continues to present news about his new album that will be released this year. On this occasion, the Peruvian singer-songwriter announced the premiere of “Let the wind take me”, the third installment of his next record production.
The launch includes the premiere of a colorful video clip recorded at the Convent of the Descalzos del Rímac, where, by coincidence, the first Casa Criolla is housed, a meeting point for fans and followers of our criollismo.
With this song, Marco Romero returns to his musical origins. “’Let the wind take me’ maintains the concept of fusing the genres I love: it has electric guitars and drums, part of the rock with which I started; the landó, which is the basis of the song and one of the most important Afro-Peruvian rhythms; and, it has nuances of Latin music, which has also been part of my artistic life since my beginnings”Romero explained about his new creation.
“As an artist, one of my goals is for young people to recognize themselves through Peruvian musicwhatever the genre they want to develop, be it from the coast, mountains or jungle of our country”added the driver of “One and a thousand voices”.
For the national artist, the fact that the video clip of his new song was recorded in the Convento de los Descalzos has been the best decision, because the historical place contributes with the lyrics of the song to transport the public and the protagonists to the origins of criollismo .
“This location takes us back to where it all began. In the convent there is also the Casa del Criollismo… There are wonderful photographs of the first jaranas that we have not experienced, but thanks to these images -among other elements- we can appreciate. Knowing our history drives us to continue cultivating this music”the musician pointed out.
