Puerto Rican singer songwriter Jose Saavedra Iguina brings a new collection of songs with the album Ver Cada Ver (To See Every Sight). The album, recorded in San Juan, Puerto Rico and Tucson, Arizona, brings together stories, musicians, and old friends. It presents a collection of songs that reflects on empathy, struggle in times of war, repression, and our ability to feel solidarity not only towards others but towards ourselves.
Ver Cada Ver tries to capture and reflect upon themes ranging from U.S. intervention in Puerto Rico, the U.S.-Mexico border conflict, as well as the simple beauty of weaving words together.
The album, produced by the singer and long-time friend and songwriter Walter Morciglio, features Pepo on guitar and vocals as well as members of La Desgracia Music Ensemble, Elise DuBord on violin, Michael Hummer on drums, and Becca Bleich on viola.
The album also features a number of very special guests, from Calexico's Joey Burns on cello to Puerto Rican singer-songwriters Walter Morciglio, Fernando Ferrer, and Shana Torres.
Ver Cada Ver is, as its title suggests, a call to reflection, questioning, action, and solidarity among all humankind.
