Old songs, vital and unfinished, that resist the passage of time

With the intrusion of the pandemic and the changes it has brought to our lives, it seems incredible that some of those home conversations, in the midst of confinement, have ended up associating two good friends like Arico and Páramo.

Thus, from friendship and with the idea of rescuing -respectively- one of those old songs that is pending, vital and unfinished but that resists the passage of time in the shadows, intact… is how this project was born. A double single in which each one of them gives an account of that embryonic song and shares it with us, twinned in ‘Kwashiokor/Fuerteventura’.

Due to their respective compositional triggers (the former projected towards the political environment, the latter in introspective recollection), both songs are diametrically opposed from their constitution and as far as their general theme is concerned but, at the same time, both also respond to a simple exercise of an outside-inside split that connects them, explains them and complements them during our listening. One after the other and the other way round, regardless of the order. The crudest part of the pandemic has passed, but the breath and the words of the other during those months, under four walls, have been left in our personal history and memory, just as this music has been rescued and saved forever.
