How we met:

Carlos Vives’ “La Tierra del Olvido” was a perfect song to bring around Colombia. When we met Carlos in Bogota, we already had recorded and filmed musicians on the song. When we showed Carlos the video of his own song played by more than 30 musicians around Colombia, he couldn’t believe it. The day after, we met Carlos again at his restaurant in Bogota and recorded him, singing with musicians recorded in Palenque, Cartagena and Bogota on a song that he had written more than 15 years ago.
