With their second album, este mundo, Rupa and the April Fishes portray life’s accidental beauty and human suffering through a entirely unique melting pot of gypsy swing, Colombia cumbia, French chanson and Indian ragas. The CD is packaged in a matte-finish digipak complete with a 32-page booklet including stunning exclusive photos and English translations.
this song is about a change in world order. it takes place along the devil's highway, in the desert of the borderlands. someone is waiting to cross. she is waiting for the moon to light the way to make it easier. the tales of people who have walked this path are harrowing, the heat, the thirst, the fear of losing one's life, the deaths. and the question, is it worth it? this song is about a softer light, a call for a more compassionate world order.
