The idea of a Christmas theme, sprinkled with lively cadence and hope, hovered in the minds of four patio musicians. A casual conversation between two of them sparked an unexpected combination of strings, percussion and harmonious voices.
“I thought of the little star as a symbol of the hard-working and optimistic Puerto Rican. He takes the brunt of it like everyone else, but in the end he grows up and becomes hope. He says he is present in the good and not so good times as he goes through the year, but when December arrives he seeks to distract himself and celebrate good things.”explained the singer-songwriter and composer of the song Juan Gabriel Ramosthrough written statements.
The music producer also perceived in the singer Windy Diaz the perfect essence to accompany you in the interpretation of the “Little Star”.
“For me, the little star represents those people who have had to go make their dreams in another country and long to find themselves back in a better Puerto Rico. They are the ones who represent us, even if they are outside their home, shining with their own light. “Each one of us is a little star”said the young woman, whose individual and collaborative artistic work is available on all digital platforms. “Estrellita” serves as a prelude to the respective productions of Juan Gabriel and Windy.
The voices were joined by the prominent Cuatrista Jose Eduardo Santana and the popular percussionist Daniel Diaz. As noted, the four musicians, who make up a handful of products from Puerto Rican universities, took a break from their agendas to collaborate on “Estrellita.”
Santana, who recently released his production “Cuarto Menguante,” brought his incomparable skill on the strings and his ability as a co-producer. On the other hand, Diaz, who is a member of Rene Perez’s band, “Residente”, contributed with his unmatched freshness and talent on the conga and tambourines.
