about

Prolific and multi-talented Jesus Alejandro "El Niño" digs into his Afro Cuban roots, exploring mystifying 18th Century Yoruban Poems and Chants.

In this album “El Niño” also takes us for a visit to his childhood Cuba with the song “Cazuela”, a captivating rendition of his memories of the lively street vendors extolling the quality of their wares on his Cuban streets. Of course, no album of “El Niño” would be complete without a romantic story, and here he offers “No Supe Amar”, a meditative and mature realization of a love lost, performed to the beat of Afro Cuban drums. Jesus finally brings us to the present day Cuba with the heart wrenching “Te Juro Suelo Mio”, an earnest promise to his beloved land that he will return some day.

TE JURO SUELO MIO CON EL ALMA
QUE NUNCA OLVIDARE DE DONDE
SOY
ME INSPIRAN LOS COLORES DE LA PALMA
POR ESO AQUI EN MI CANTO YO TE DOY

Y DICE QUE TE EXTRANA MUCHO HOY

POR ESO AQUI EN MI CANTO YO TE DOY

(LEAD)
LA LINDA POESIA QUE NO ENGANA
Y DICE QUE TE EXTRANA MUCHO HOY
SI ESCUCHO UNA GUITARRA EN EL CAMINO
O EL ECO DE UN TAMBOR AL RESONAR
DESMALLA EL CORAZON EN UN SUSPIRO
PORQUE ANSIA SU SUELO
PISAR
EL VERDE DE TU CAMPO
Y TU PRADERA
LA ARENA DE TU PLAYA TROPICAL
SABER QUE SOY DE TI CUAL LA RUMBA MORENA
QUE RETUMBA EN MI PUEBLO NATAL
QUE RETUMBA EN MI PUEBLO NATAL
YA TU VE, YO QUIERO VIVIR EN MI
TIERRA
YO QUIERO VIVIR EN MI TIERRA
YO QUIERO VIVIR EN MI TIERRA CRIOLLO

YA TU VE, YO QUIERO VIVIR EN MI TIERRA

I PROMISE YOU, MY LAND, WITH MY HEART
THAT I WILL NEVER FORGET WHERE I AM FROM
INSPIRED BY THE COLORS OF THE PALM
THAT IS WHY I OFFER IN THIS SONG
PRETTY POETRY THAT DOES NOT LIE
AND SAYS IT MISSES YOU SO MUCH TODAY

(CORO)
I PROMISE YOU, MY LAND, WITH MY HEART
THAT I WILL NEVER FORGET WHERE I AM FROM
INSPIRED BY THE COLORS OF THE PALM
THAT IS WHY I BRING YOU THIS SONG

(LEAD)
PRETTY POETRY THAT DOES NOT LIE
AND SAYS IT MISSES YOU SO MUCH TODAY
IF I HEAR A GUITAR ON THE WAY
OR THE ECHOING BEAT OF A DRUM
THE HEART FAINTS WITH A SIGH
BECAUSE IT YEARNS TO WALK ON YOUR GROUND
THE GREEN OF YOUR COUNTRYSIDE
AND GRASSLANDS
THE SAND OF YOUR TROPICAL BEACH
TO KNOW THAT I AM YOURS LIKE THE
DARK RUMBA
THAT ECHOES IN MY HOMELAND
THAT ECHOES IN MY HOMELAND
SO YOU SEE, I WANT TO LIVE IN MY COUNTRY
I WANT TO LIVE IN MY COUNTRY
I WANT TO LIVE IN MY COUNTRY..CREOLE

(CHORUS)
SO YOU SEE, I WANT TO LIVE IN MY COUNTRY

(CHORUS)
SO YOU SEE, SO YOU SEE
SO YOU SEE, I WANT TO LIVE IN MY COUNTRY
