Pasos al Viento is Paula's first EP, featuring four tracks, ech one of them from different artists.
"Pasos al Viento represents the willing to leave a little bit of my soul everywhere I go. And now that I'm moving so far away from home, I want to share my favorite tunes with you so you can stay with a little bit of me".
This EP was born with the idea of leaving the people I love the most with a part of my soul, just before I left for Valencia in 2017. Everything was happening so fast, and this compilation of tracks wasn't the exception at the moment. I had no idea the implications that recording an EP had, how complicated was it and how much time it needed to grow and to make it work. But I just jumped into it. I started by making the art with a really close friend, Chiara Passalacqua, who spent with me sleepless nights trying to bring this idea to life in little time. All the art of the EP was hand drawn, which makes is even special and unique for this CD.
To have Pasos al Viento with me and with you right now is a sign of hard work between me and an amazing team, that did an amazing job all with little time. I need to thank tremendously to Chiara Passalacqua (art); Imagine Records (Victor Yaya), Bruno Rosazza, Miguel Nakagawa (studio recording, mastering and mixing); Diego Mamani and Rodrigo Ñiquen (guitar), Marcelo Zenón, Rodrigo Vargas and César Gabriel Riveros (percussion) and to Gonzalo, Pedro, Naiara and my family.
Without any of these people this wouldn't had happened.
"Every time that someone starts a journey, a part of one's soul stay and the other one leaves. this is the part of my soul that will stay with you, while the other one goes pursuing its dream".
