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.

Final Details for the Music Video We Began Shooting Last Month

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.

We did most of today’s shoot at The Beach a truly remarkable recording studio in Calgary.  We did a few other scenes around the Eau Claire area.  Special thanks to my friends Willy Garcia Ascencio and Raúl Leguía Camino for their collaboration in some of the scenes. Also special thanks to the lovely Miss Jill Maria Robinson for acting alongside me.
