"Two and a half years have passed since I arrived to New York from Argentina. Through this time, I have had the opportunity of meeting and playing with many heroes of mine, and also found inspiration in great people I met along the way. A lot happened very fast and like everyone, thanks to the quarantine I got the chance to stay still for a moment, reflect, and to write and work on this music.
It was also during quarantine that my bond with Arturo and Fernando got to a new level, both personally and musically. It is a great pleasure and a blessing to make music with people so close to me, and that share a same feeling.
Similarly, a week before we even learnt about lockdown, I moved together with my partner Siewli to our current apartment in Brooklyn. Her warmth and support are not only a key to the realization of this album, but a huge part of the compositions and sounds in it.
Also, I want to express my deep gratitude to Guillermo Klein. All of the compositions were based on concepts he shared with me in a series of virtual encounters we had through the lockdown. I treasure all the advices he gave me and I know they will be part of my process forever.
Finally, I give thanks to my family; specially to my parents for their love, my brother for his advice, and my grandma for her prayers.
I hope you enjoy this music, it is my way to share this love I mentioned. There is a lot more to come."
