Otra Vez is a dance remake of Julian Vena's "Otra Vez", the acoustic version written early in his music career. A fan favourite, Otra Vez is a song about a girl who seems to be creating angst and uncertainty in a relationship. The lyrics of this piece paint a good picture of what was being felt at the time. You can literally see the city street lights, and feel the complexity between two lovers.
This remake uses the original Spanish guitar that was used to record the original song, making its way back into the studio years later. The only way to truly capture the original sound was to use the exact same guitar. Luckily, this beautiful instrument was passed down from our Grandfather to our Mother, who was kind enough to let us use it for our own likings, yet again. Thanks Mom.
This is a tribute to my little brother, Julian, and how it all began for him. After writing Otra Vez, he would go on to develop an incredible talent for music, and write dozens of amazing songs with his band Debello. Debello was a Chicago Latin music experience that was unlike anything else around.
