“One day I heard a song that made my nerves tremble and my hair stand on end. It was Piero, an Argentinian crooner from the late 60’s.
I asked my mom if she knew of Piero. Mami said, “Don’t you remember? I played that Piero record all day and night when you were little.” I didn’t remember, but my body remembered. I wrote to Piero, we became friends- and it was like a magic door was opened to a whole world of music from the past that felt familiar and urgent, no matter what language you speak. This is how I started collecting songs for ‘Recordar.’ The songs that my body remembered.”
“Recordar (Remember),” from Ani Cordero, is a modern musical platform for highlighting Latin American and Caribbean history.
