ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Algo De Mi (Something Of Me), is dedicated to my father Felipe Pina Ramirez and my mother Jeannette Palacios De Mata.

This album was born of an idea of mine to unite the feelings of my parents with me. I didn't have them together so in a metaphorical way I wanted to join the two people I loved most in this world, musically through this recording. I grew up listening to Boleros. I remember from the age of three years listening to this music. I enjoyed a great feeling for the style and its themes of what life was like; all in a song. With time, my love for Boleros grew but then one day I left my roots to come to Canada. Leaving everything in Venezuela behind, my country and my family was difficult and lonely. After several years, I started to feel the urge to sing and express all that I left behind and to bring into my music my personal experiences. I chose the themes of love, the way I wanted to play them. I bring to the ears of people in my new home the beauty of such composers as Agustin Lara, Álvaro Carrillo, Rafael Hernández, Armando Manzanero, Oswaldo Farrés, César Portillo de la Luz. There are only two songs I chose for different personal reasons that are not of the Bolero style. One by Simón Diaz, Venezuelan composer and singer, "As A Small Drop Of Dew" (Como Pequeña Gotas De Rocio) and "Scent of a Woman" (Aroma De Mujer) by Columbian, Margarita Rosa De Francisco.

The Bolero has made a profound mark, like a footprint in Latin American music. Being in a North American country of varied cultures, I thought I could not abandon my roots and should bring some of this music to my new home. It reflects both our feelings and the romantic atmosphere prevailing in the Latino way of life. I think the Bolero will never die. To the people who live here and to people from other countries, I bring Venezuelan memories and experiences to be felt a little through this music.
