Performance on Una y Mil Voces – Nuestro Secreto in French

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.

Watch Felipe Alberto’s New Music Video for “La Apañadora”

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.

Album Finalized: Merry Christmas

For the past two days I’ve been running on little sleep to finalize the details for the upcoming album Alma del Ayer. With the help of my graphic and web designer, Carrie Gates we got everything in on time. Just in the nick of time, during midnight mass (shame on me for checking my phone in church), I received the email notifying me that all the music and artwork had been successfully uploaded onto the CD Baby site for pressing. Merry Christmas!!

Radio Interview – Red 106.7 FM Destino

Special thanks to Alex Macias, radio host of Destino-Calgary on Red 106.7 FM, for inviting me to discuss my upcoming album, Alma del Ayer, launching in a few months.  It was great to talk about criollo and Andean music on the show.
