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.
another poet! i know i am not alone in saying my first lover was Pablo Neruda. his fire and appetite for life are so palpable in his art, i often wanted to call him on the phone for advice when i felt lost. realizing i could not reach him, i wrote this song to dance with him. the first verse is his. the second is my answer. a milonga that branches into other forms, this is a song of celebrating the power of living life close to the juicy core.
