Volver Volver

The holidays are behind us and I'm looking forward to a trip to Mexico City this coming weekend.

Last week I attended a fantastic concert at the Teatro Angela Peralta here in San Miguel de Allende. Just finished a video featuring the live recording from this performance of the song Volver Volver. It features the passionate voice of Alberto Solis, soulful Gil Gutierrez on guitar and haunting trumpet of Lorenzo Topano. This incredible love song is paired with some of my original illustrations as well as photography I've shot in San Miguel. Thanks to my childhood friend and gifted photographer Edgar Ladron de Guevara for contributing the amazing cantina photographs he took in Mexico City.

This ranchera song written in 1976 by songwriter Fernando Maldonado was made popular by Vicente Fernandez. It tells the story of a heartbroken man who accepts the blame in his relationship with the woman he loves and begs her to return.
