Vamos por el Magdalenaa

"Vamos por el Magdalena" is a song that refers to life represented by a river. The river, like life, changes as its course progresses; it has "droughts and abundance." The river inspires the journey and invites to dream.


The Album Que venga la vida also includes songs inspired by great musicians such as Totó la Momposina who was the inspiration for Así lo canto yo (This is how I sing it).

When we finished the recording process for the album Que venga la vida we gathered with friends to celebrate! This was our opening song… Tal vez (Maybe): “Each day brings something to believe and disbelieve, sweetness and bitterness are inseparable, thus, life shall be lived as it comes.”

I’ve always liked the sound from the band Vietato, it is confident and musically beautiful. Their lyrics create images that when you hear them you can almost touch them.
Dulce Boca (Your sweet mouth) is another collaboration included in this album written by and recorded with Diego Amorocho from the band Vietato. Dulce Boca is simply a sensual song. “Give me a little more from your sweet mouth.”

Lejos está el final (The end is far)
This song reaffirms the meaning of trust. “Your hands and mine go by, your steps go with mine…through my eyes you'll realize the end is far" While we were celebrating the release of our album Que Venga la Vida we had a concert night for our closest friends. Here is the video of that special moment.

The recording process for this album, Que venga la vida (Let life come) lasted for almost a year at the Polen Records studios in Bogotá - Colombia, where Mónica began experimenting with Mauricio Pantoja’s guitars, Diego Amorocho’s engineering and Felipe Álvarez´s production. Once they determined the musical structure for the guitars and the voices, they began recording with each of the session musicians. Having worked with upright bass player Diego Valdés for many years his contribution became very natural and clear.
