ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born in Barranquilla , Colombia , where the streets are used as soccer fields and voracious December winds run by, Lina was talented from an early age. Her older brother, sister, twin brother and she were submerged into the music's hemisphere since before their birth. Her father was a frustrated musician who loved the guitar. He would only play when he thought no one was listening. But Lina was listening.
Breathing the first gasp of Columbia 's government collapse, her mother decided to leave the country and take her and her twin brother with her. With a supermarket bag of belongings, they embraced crowded living rooms and bulb-less bedrooms. They shared what they had. Once when she was thirsty and waiting with her mother outside a supermarket, a man with a yellow tie gave her a can of coke. She saved it and used it as a bank to buy her first guitar. After she said we would encounter many 'yellow-tie' people in this country.
Dreams danced behind her head when she would listen to music. When inspired, Lina would quote Eddie Vedder's 'Oceans' by saying her dreams were fifty percent tangible now.
The can of coke was replaced with a red guitar. Where there was one green pear for dinner there were now more. A flinty rug was replaced with a bed. Her orange notebook and blue pencil helped her write autobiographical stories, flavored with the influence of Pablo Neruda's vivid romanticism and Gabriel Garcia Marquez's honest irony and concrete singular verbal depictions. Her essence remains the same. She writes songs that, like her influences, amplify the hope and zoom in the dreams of many people.
When Lina takes the stage the crowd is mesmerized. They know she is the real deal. Her passion is very inspiring. Her beautiful voice and moves will captivate you. Her words will make you think.
