Llora, Llora Corazón is a folk song from northern Peru of the early 20th century, popularized in the 60s by Carmencita Lara. This track is included in Felipe Alberto’s Alma del Ayer album. Alma del Ayer is a collection of traditional Peruvian music recorded and produced independently in Saskatoon, Canada in the studio of Josh J. Palmer. All the songs were recorded with traditional instruments to maintain the authenticity of the criollo and and andean musical genres. Alma del Ayer is a work inspired by love for Peruvian music and the musical legacy of the latin america.

While on Una y Mil Voces I performed Por Esa Ingrata an little known yet truly beautiful and heart wrenching song by Félix Pasache.
Saturday, May 30, 2015 I was honoured to perform as a special guest on Una y Mil Voces hosted by Bartola on Perú’s national television station, TV Perú. It was wonderful to share the stage again with friends such as Jorge Pardo, Jorge Luis Jasso, Alejandro Velasquez, Julie Freundt, and Julio Andrade. That particular two hour edition of Una y Mil Voces was to honour famed Peruvian composer, Félix Pasache. As such I sang one of his most famous songs, Nuesto Secreto translated into French.
Today I present you with the video of La Apañadora, a beautiful tondero by Peruvian composer – Alicia Maguiña. I hope you enjoy it. This project is my labour of love and admiration for the cultural legacy of Peru’s traditional music. I hope that this project helps to foment a great appreciation for this musical genre. You can also listen this cover of La Apañadora on my Muzooka profile.

Today, along with L&C Productions, I went to Becker’s Ranch, a horse ranch near the town of Airdrie. We needed to shoot a few scenes on horseback for the music video we had begun in November. I wore a poncho that one of my beloved aunts had given me several years ago. The rawhide-braided bridle I used on the horse, the jato as it is called, has the silver pieces that were on the bridle of my dad’s godfather, almost a century ago. On camera, Jill Maria Robinson, wore a straw hat from the city of Cajamarca given to me by my nana when I was 4 years old and a shawl from Chachapoyas that belongs to my mother. All this to say that although the filming was done far from many of the people that are dear to me, I was still surrounded by their love.
After days of prep we just finished filming the first music video for the launch of the album – Alma del Ayer. Can’t say which criollo piece it is yet…the secret doesn’t come out until the launch. Special thanks to L&C Style Productions for the cinematography and production.
Also special thanks to the following actors: Stefan Montalbetti, Breanna Palmer, Paula Osorio Ortiz, Myles Shedden, Andrean Kloppenborg, Andrew Plokhii. I also extend thanks to the following restaurants who shared their space for the project: Vin Room and Buon Giorno Ristorante Italiano.
All that is left is to include a few scenes filmed in the city of Chachapoyas to finalize the production of this music video.
July Saturday 19th and Sunday the 20th I participated in Calgary’s Latin festival –Fiestaval— where I played traditional Latin-American music with the support of my bro, Willy Garcia Ascenscio on cajon. Always a pleasure to play for the Calgary crowd.
