There are certain artists that inspire this blog in one way or another, Spanish favorites Carlos & Genis have played a big part on how we envision music and its much needed balance with visuals at the time of presenting it to others. Hidrogenesse covers Remedios Amaya, with a song that participated in the Eurovision contest more almost 30 years ago. “Quien maneja mi barca” is like that beautiful song I once heard at church as a child, and it got stocked in my head regardless of how my beliefs have matured. This is part of project Rewind 2, a fun place where bands around the world pay tribute to an important song from the past, “a flight to the sounds of yesterday.”
