Mas Alla (free) 03:16
MAS ALLA Mas Alla, Mas alla Busca y me encontraras No hay descanso pero se Que todo esta en su lugar En la cárcel de sin sin Vestido de oficial Mas Alla, Mas alla Busca y me encontraras En la casa del Saudí El castillo el sultán Mas Alla, Mas alla Busca y me encontraras Rumbo a la vieja ciudad Vendiendo soledad Mas Alla, Mas alla Busca y me encontraras BEYOND Beyond Beyond Look for me & you will find There's no rest, but I know Everything in its place In the Sin Sin prison In a warden uniform Beyond beyond Look for me & you will find In a Saudi home In the Sultan's castle Beyond beyond Look for me & you will find On the way to the Old city selling loneliness Beyond beyond Look for me & you will find

LA OVEJA NEGRA Somos su hermano menor Y se lleva todo lo que quiera Sus flechas penetra el rigor En el vientre duras manos negras frutas delicias del sol producidas con inconsecuencias marcha el macho feroz aun así le encendimos la mecha Ay clamor Son los hechos de la oveja negra Ay clamor Dios perdona a los que nos condena Deja sus huellas veloz cuando caza culturas ajenas Soberbio de corazon que no sabe cuidar lo que aprecia Obsequia su gran desamor Y lo viste como la gran lengua comercia sus sueños en voz clara y alta que la vida mengua Ay clamor Son los hechos de la oveja negra Ay clamor Dios perdona a los que nos condena THE BLACK SHEEP We are the younger siblings and he takes whatever he likes His arrows penetrate the strictness in the belly with hardened black hands Delicious fruits from the sun produced with insignificance The Ferocious one marches on And we still light up his wick Oh the outcry, it’s the actions of the black sheep Oh the outcry, God forgives those who condemn us He leaves swift footprints when he hunts foreign cultures arrogant down to the bone that wastes what he appreciates He serves his great disaffection and disguises it in the language He barters his dreams in a voice Loud and clear that life wanes Oh the outcry, it’s the actions of the black sheep Oh the outcry, God forgives those who condemn us

No Cae Mal 04:52
NO CAE MAL Cruzando La Montaña, rumbo en pie. Me di cuenta de lo frágil, que es la piel Brillan luces las del valle ocupando a sus habitantes, deleitando Y sonríen, sonríen Otros lloran por su suerte, que no cambia esperando que la muerte no les traiga sueños blancos que suscitan miles ceños en el camino de los rostros sin dueños Y sonríen, sonríen No cae mal de vez en cuando no cae mal que rían tanto Los años coleccionan mil recuerdos mientras que el polvo ahoga los deseos los ojos hechizados van durmiendo con la risa de los viejos bohemios Y sonríen, sonríen No cae mal de vez en cuando no cae mal que rían tanto IT DOESN'T HURT Crossing through the mountains path on foot I noticed just how fragile the skin is The lights shine bright from the valley, occupied by its inhabitants, they’re delighted and they smile, smile Others cry for their luck, that does not change Hoping that death does not bring with it White dreams that conjures up a thousand frowns In the road of the ownerless faces It doesn't hurt, every once in awhile It doesn’t hurt to laugh out loud The years collect a thousand memories While the dust covers all desires Dreamy eyes begin to sink into sleep With the laughter of the old Bohemians and they smile, smile It doesn't hurt, every once in awhile It doesn’t hurt to laugh out loud

El Llano 04:05
EL LLANO Vienen desde el llano, de otro siglo y de otro sol Lentos en su canto, origen culto y sin guion Ahí vienen las cuatro voces dueñas de los elementos Trayendo poquito a poco secretos del universo Llano- tierra de mi amor Llano- aire libre soy Llano- como el agua voy Llano- fuego de pasion Cuentan los testigos que es un iris sin color Recia las entrañas de los turbio y sabios Ahí vienen las cuatro voces dueñas de los elementos Trayendo poquito a poco secretos del universo Llano- tierra de mi amor Llano- aire libre soy Llano- como el agua voy Llano- fuego de pasion THE PLAINS They come from the plains, from another century, and another sun measured in their pace, secret origins, and without a script Here come the four voices, masters of the elements Bringing one by one the secrets of the universe Plains - land of my love Plains - free as air i am Plains - like water i roam Plains - Fire of passion Witnesses tell, that they’re a rainbow without its colors They harden the entrails of the wise and confused Here come the four voices, masters of the elements Bringing one by one the secrets of the universe Plains - land of my love Plains - free as air i am Plains - like water i roam Plains - Fire of passion

Gaitan 04:43
Gaitan Gritan todos del dolor Sangre corren en avenida Séptima Todos gritan ya de sed Furia exprime lo que le queda de fe Hoy cayo un héroe A las leyes concientes Fueron tres balas antes de almorzar Hijos de patria dice el general Ya no se espanten es hora de armar y entrar al siglo de la oscuridad Gaitan They all scream in pain Blood flows on 7th Ave They all scream from thirst Fury squeezes all that’s left of their faith Today a hero fell To the abiding laws It was three bullets before lunch Sons of country says the general Don’t be scared it’s time to take arms And enter the century of darkness

Los Niños Del Desierto Con miedo y la cara fria, sale el sol y el nuevo dia Trae con si la posibilidad De dejar la pesadilla atras, de alcanzar un sueño al despertar Y con la frente en alto andar Jugo, pan, y ave marias, madres suben con sus crias A la troka sin mirar atras Las palabras quedan ya de mas, El horizonte brinda su calzar Y el desierto a caminar Y no hay refugio del intenso sol, hay tres botellas de agua y tortas de jamon La mochila casi ya vacia, La comida de mi madre y el rosario que me dio Por que estoy listo pa cruzar, por que estoy listo pa cruzar Por que estoy listo pa cruzar - mi nueva vida comenzar Pasan horas, pasan dias, pasan hambre y noches frias pasan pero no pueden cruzar Las palabras quedan ya de mas El desierto viene a reclamar su tarifa que es mortal Y no hay refugio del instenso sol, Labios cortados, secos, sabor a dolor Que alguien encuentre escrita esta cancion, Pa que le cuenten a mis padres por el rumbo que fui yo Y ahora estoy listo pa soñar, porque estoy listo pa soñar Por que estoy listo pa soñar - en lo pudo y no sera Children Of The Desert With fear on a cold face, the sun comes out and with the new day It brings with it the possibility Of leaving the nightmares behind, to reach a dream while awake and to walk with my head held high Juice, bread and Holy Marys, mothers climb up with their young To the truck and never look behind Words are overdone, the horizon offers its sole and towards the desert we walk And there is no resting from the intense sun There are 3 water bottles, and ham sandwiches The book bag almost empty, my mother’s food and the rosary she gave me And I’m ready to cross, yes i’m ready to cross Because i’m ready to cross, and my new life to start. Passing hours, passing days, passing hunger and cold nights, Passing but they cannot cross Words are overdone The desert comes to claim its mortal entry fee And there is no resting from the intense sun Cut up lips, dry with a taste of pain Hope that someone finds this written song So they can tell my folks through what paths I have been And now i’m ready to dream, and I’m ready to dream Because i’m ready to dream, about what could have been but was not.

EN LA CASA DE LA ABUELA Entre un puerto viejo y la calle lerda Casita de caña con matas y tierra Vive una abuelita con su aliso amado que le da la sombra a un corazón cansado Desde madrugada sale a rienda suelta Quiere regresar antes de la merienda Con un solo foco de cuarenta vatios Alumbra el alma de su vecindario En la casa de la abuela Estan reunidos, en su nido, oh oh Siempre con la puerta abierta Estan reunidos, en su nido, oh oh Cuando todos marchan y sola ella queda Con la frente en fiebre y la espalda crespa En la cama alegre revive las horas Mientras su chozita se le deteriora En la casa de la abuela Estan reunidos, en su nido, oh oh Siempre con la puerta abierta Estan reunidos, en su nido, oh oh AT GRANDMA’S HOUSE Between an old port and a slow street In a house of cane with dirt and plants There lives a grandma with her beloved Sycamore That gives shade to a worn-out heart She lets loose at the crack of dawn She wants to be back before lunch With a single 40 watt bulb She lights up the soul of her neighborhood At Grandma’s House They’re gathered in her nest - oh oh oh Always with the door wide open They’re gathered in her nest - oh oh oh When everyone marches out and she’s all alone With a feverish forehead and a creaky back From her bed, jubilantly she relives the hours While her little house deteriorates

El Llanto De Un Fusilado Buenos días pobre hombre acaso no pudo dormir? Es la fecha, ya es la hora Tienes algo que decir? Invitados que atestiguan para bien o para mal como luz a la polilla no resistiran del pan Ojo y diente hoy se cobran y se van Mis hermanos les imploro - yo he contado la verdad Mis hermanos hoy les lloro - tengan poco de piedad Y si en sus ojos traerán Justicia que alienta la paz Ojo y diente hoy se cobran y se van. Ay jurado cuanto cobran? por el voto popular no los ciegos ni los nobles nadie cree ya en la verdad Mis hermanos les imploro - yo he contado la verdad Mis hermanos hoy les lloro - tengan poco de piedad Y si en sus ojos traerán, justicia que alivia la paz Ojo y diente hoy se cobran y se van. Ojo y diente hoy se cobran y se van. The Cries of a Condemned Man Good morning, you poor devil Could you not sleep well last night Today's the day, it's the hour Do you have anything to say? All the guests bear witness For better or for worse Like moths to a lightbulb They cannot resist the bread Eye and tooth, today they're due and they're gone My brothers, I implore you - I have told you the truth My brothers, I cry before you - have a little pity And if in your eyes you will find, the justice that calms the peace Eye and tooth, today they're due and they're gone Oh Jury! How much do you charge? For the popular stance Neither the blind nor the wise Still believe in the truth Eye and tooth, today they're due and they're gone My brothers, I implore you - I have told you the truth My brothers, I cry before you - have a little pity And if in your eyes you will find, the justice that calms the peace Eye and tooth, today they're due and they're gone Eye and tooth, today they're due and they're gone

about

The album continues the journey of Cuñao, from the solo project of Julio Montero, an Ecuadorian raised in New York City, to the six-piece group that they have become, an acoustic project influenced by the stillness of the desert surrounding Los Angeles, as well as the nueva canción movement but one also willing to feature cumbia rhythms, textures from Africa and the heft of rock.
