Canciones De Cuna - Lullabies


Listen to me
Listen to yourself
Growing up among rivers of tears
Talking about the sun
Waking up tomorrow
Warm in those arms
Let me be your earthly path
And sing you the values of working
Listen to yourself
Listen to yourself
Give love some time
The rain knows when water is needed
In days of solitude
You'll never be alone
Listen to yourself
Listen to yourself
Day by day
Listen to yourself in these words
Listen to yourself
Listen to yourself
Listen to yourself...

Argentinian Benefit CD by Casa de la Cultura de la Calle.
Release Date: 7 February 2011

The House of Culture is an NGO founded and directed by the actor and producer, GASTÓN PAULS. The association has for aim to create a creative space for children and adolescents at risk. More than 400 children from homes Children's Institutes, schools and kids on the street participating in our workshops. We are rooted to the link, artistic and therapeutic. We note that since the art work opens up tremendous possibilities for transformation. Culture, education, creative, diverse artistic expressions are the starting point from which the Casa de la Cultura de la Calle works to promote the boys and girls the ability to dream and transform.

The objective of this project is that the kids find in music a place for expression and production. All lyrics on this CD were written by children of 7-21 years. We worked with over 150 kids so that from each workshop (theater, music, visual arts and visual arts) the kids write, text, songs, ideas, stories related to dreams, to which they ever sang, to what they would like to sing to their children. To the musicians who participated in this project we suggested that, with these letters compose and perform a song thinking about how they sing the lyrics to their children. Something simple, small, a lullaby. The result is the creation of a CD, which will be sold to benefit the Association.

Participated in this project: Ricardo Mollo, Luis Alberto Spinetta, Fito Páez, Pedro Aznar, Germán Daffunchio, Fernando Cabrera, Hilda Lizarazu, Gonzalo Aloras, Lisandro Aristimuño, Litto Nebbia, Damien Rice, Ulises Butrón, LUKA BLOOM, Vítor Ramil, Kevin Johansen, Miguel Cantilo y Hugo Fattoruso.

The executive production of the CD was in charge of NICOLÁS PAULS, musician and actor.
