“Esa es una verdad que en mí siempre vivirá.”

“Ese Camino” by Julieta Venegas | I don’t often write about Spanish-language songs. I don’t really get to listen to a lot of Spanish radio lately (this being an exception from years ago, and this is in English!) so I don’t get to hear a lot of Spanish songs, whether it’s from Europe or from Latin America. Or, in this case, California. Rainy and I were listening to The Latin Alternative and she recognized this song from some video she saw somewhere. “So it must be a few years old,” I thought. Wrong. “Ese Camino” is the lead from Julieta Venegas’ latest record, Algo Sucede, released just a month ago. A multi-instrumentalist, Julieta began her career in the late 90s, after years growing up in Tijuana, and has released seven records. And even won a Grammy – not just a Latin Grammy, of which she has many, but a Grammy, in 2007, for her record Limón y Sal. Shows how little we know that isn’t English. Not that we’re good at redressing the balance, or something. [NB]
