about

For this album (my sixth as a leader) I wanted to present my music in a different setting than my long-time working band House Of Illusion has provided. My friend and producer Guillermo Klein and I had the idea of stripping things down to just the essentials, to let the songs really speak for themselves. Most of the tracks are just me and a piano and my wonderful bassist and drummer with Guillermo filling things out here and there as needed. Luis Bacqué did an incredible job capturing our dynamic in the studio. This also is the first release from my own label Aklovap Records. I'm really pleased with the results and I hope that you will share these moments with me.

Track Name: Malala
We are side by side
Hello, can you hear me?
From the other side of the ground

We are wise and sad
But you say your God isn’t mine
In the flowerful valley

Light and shadow
Impatient world, are you ready?
I’ve got to find a path taking me somewhere to be free

No fears nor triggers
A place on earth, are you there?
Is that a shattering sound
Or just a southern wind roaring
In your dreams
That you would never awaken

Like a hidden hope
My hands are catching raindrops
In the diminishing silence

I am standing here alone
In the sand and smoke
Reminiscing of you

Sky and meadow
Falling down right on me
I must have lost my wings flying out of here to be free

No sense nor reason
Just escalated wrecking
The sentiment drawn from the rising curved line
In your dreams
That you would never awaken
Track Name: Late Parade
Like unwinding tangled threads
She gets up, starts another ordinary day
Staring at the sunbeams
They seem far and near

The long journey of all these years
Her map is good for nothing but her legs can tell
How wonderful it was
How true they were
She’ll catch the late parade in rain

Invisible creatures take away
Unbearable sadness day to day

Between the scattered clouds
She finds her melodies of mysterious love
She’s dancing cheek to cheek
He seems so proud and glad
She’ll catch the late parade in rain

Invisible creatures take away
Unbearable sadness but don’t know why
The only place where she is welcome now
Suddenly in silence and the color fades away
Track Name: Wave, Wave Goodbye
I’m waiting for the train
Under grey-blue skies
I thought our days would never die
Hope you and I will meet again
Glad that I know you’re the one I found

This long road, a line of sight
Leaving our days behind
You know I’ll be your light
Wave, wave goodbye

Tell me something I need to know
Show me how to get through

I’m looking for myself
In the same old town
I thought our days would never die
Just realized that in this world
The farthest place may be my own heart
Track Name: Night Talks
Walking home all alone
Through the darkness all around me
It whispers a few words to my heart
Softly in the still of the night

Starry skies, such a perfect time
Every reason for this moment
But it stares at me seeing through my lies
Softly in the still of the night

Each day
Travelling to the moon
All I wanted was to grow up to be decent
The years passed me by
And now my body’s sinking slowly

Awash in pale beauty
Much brighter tonight, I’d rather die
Softly in the still of the night
Track Name: Moon Above
She was standing by the bay
The neon light shown her pretty face
In countless boats with little masts
She saw herself, sailing though the past

She worked like a dog night after night
To find a way to live okay day by day
We are part of history
We are all unknown shining stars

The moon above
Calls her name

She won’t play the game anymore
Just follow the sounds coming through the door
It’s time to leave once again
Time to sail one last time

The moon above
Calls her name
Track Name: Winter Song
言葉も見つからないほど
打ちひしがれ
北へ、北へ
旅を続ける

昨日までの
癒えない想いは なぜ
形を変えて 今
愛を問いかける

霧に混じり、足早に
聞こえるのは winter song
遠い日の winter song

見慣れたこの坂道を
駆け下りてゆく
西へ、西へ
オレンジの空

明日からは
もう逸れないように 君を
この腕に抱いて ただ
愛を追いかけて

夕焼けに 身を任せ
口ずさむのは winter song
遠い日の winter song
Track Name: Av. Corrientes 1368
Onaka ga suita en una casita
Empanada y asado tambien bueno
Pero esta noche
Mi Corazon es para Fugazetta con queso

Sergio, Ramiro y señor Richard Nant,
Liliana, Matias, Martin y Guillo
Vamos tienen un partido!

La ciudad no es tan grande
Sabemos nuestro camino muy bien
Todos mis amigos
Vamos a viajar en Subte con los perros

Gabriella, Luisa, Vero y Kimbo
Pequeno baterista Charlie con Matto
La gruesa the thick pie crust

La ciudad es mi amor
La musica suena en la Recoleta
Dejo mis lágrimas
Para nuestra vida en el Rio de La Plata

Pepe, Tito, Nasty y hermano chino
Masa Kamaguchi y Ernesto Jodos
Que copado! Pizza Güerrin!
Track Name: La Tarde De Pepe
Did he yawn in the sun?
Lazy day dreaming away
Did he have too much fun?
Running all over the place
Now the day’s almost done
But he really doesn’t mind at all
No, he really doesn’t mind at all

Is he simple or wise?
Waiting for me on the bed
There’s a light in his eyes
Visions alive in his head
When he fell from the sky
Did he think it was part of his dream?
Did he even dream it all?

How I long to be watching him run free again

All I need to know was inside his soul within

When he fell from the sky
Did he think it was part of his dream?
Did he even dream it all?

Did he yawn in the sun?
Lazy day dreaming away
Did he have too much fun?
Running all over the place
Now the day’s almost done
Do you really have to go?
Come with me get lost in time
In the endless afternoon
Pepe’s endless afternoon
