Sound Storytelling - Week 3

MOVIMIENTO | One song - 3 Versions:

| One Video-clip | One TED Talk | One Concert |

I am inspire by my favorite Latin singer/songwriter Jorge Drexler, and one his latest song MOVIMIENTO (movement) in which he expresses his point of view about immigration, with poetic precision and beauty, as is the way of his narrative style.

In my research I found the original version (Official Video-clip) of this song, which it is dedicate to Lorena Ramirez, a long-distance runner from the Rarámuri indigenous community in mexico, and who won an ultra-marathon running in sandals.

A second version of this song was performed by Drexler a cappella during a TED -talk were he explained the story of the song.

A third version is my own recording during his concert last Saturday, February 10th at the Beacon Theater in New York. I created a sound track combining this three different versions, dividing it by verses, cutting, coping, and restructuring it. As a result each verse is played four times before going to the next one.
