A musical offering of hope, Esta Distancia, the newest album released by the all-female two-time Grammy award-winning Mariachi Divas de Cindy Shea, explores the themes of distance, loss, and sadness, as well as, hope, faith, and resilience. Through music, this album highlights the complexities of shared human experience in the face of COVID19 and the resulting worldwide pandemic. Living through the shared experience of sickness, death, and quarantines – the arts, in particular music, have helped us cope, survive, and in some cases, thrive in the face of adversity. Each song in this album examines the theme of “distance” in its various manifestations. Featuring an eclectic array of expert arrangements by Alberto Jimenez Maeda and Cindy Shea, this album showcases the mastery of multiple genres and styles of which Mariachi Divas excels. This 11-track album contains a diversity of musical offerings, including reimagined interpretations of hit songs such as “Kilometros,” “Contigo en la distancia” and “Recuérdame” from Disney Pixar’s award-winning film Coco, as well as, an appearance by guest artist Daniel Ho on ukulele for “Somewhere Over the Rainbow/ What a Wonderful World.” In addition to these beloved classics is an original heartfelt composition by Cindy Shea, Edgar Cortázar, Elyan Zamora, Oscar Villa “Esta Distancia.” This melancholy, yet hopeful and poetic song, describes the agony of being separated from the one you love. Through elegant and lush arranging that is the hallmark of Mariachi Divas, Esta Distancia, is an album of full emotion that makes the distance between one another in this time fade.
 
 

 

Verse 1
DE PRONTO EL TIEMPO SE HA QUEDADO ESTACIONADO
Y EN UN MOMENTO LA DISTANCIA NOS ENVUELVE EN SOLEDAD
PORQUÉ NO PUEDO DARTE UN BESO APASIONADO?
SI ACARICIARTE SIEMPRE HA SIDO MI MAYOR NECESIDAD?


Verse 2
CUANDO SERÁ QUE PUEDA VOLVER A ABRAZARTE?
Y SUJETARTE DE LA MANO ENTRE LA GENTE AL CAMINAR?
ME ESTÁ MATANDO ESTA MANERA DE EXTRAÑARTE
Y SOLO PIENSO EN EL
INSTANTE DE VOLVERNOS A ENCONTRAR...


Chorus
ESTA DISTANCIA
QUE POCO A POCO NOS ASFIXIA EL ALMA
ME DUELE MÁS NO PIERDO LA ESPERANZA DE VOLVER  A ESTAR CONTIGO

UNA VEZ MÁS 
ESTA DISTANCIAQUE INEVITABLEMENTE NOS ATRAPAES LA SEÑAL QUE YO NECESITABA PARA DARME CUENTA DE QUE TU ERES MI FELICIDAD


Verse 3
CUANTO DARÍA POR REFLEJARME EN TU MIRADA
Y CONTAGIARME CON TU RISA ENTRELAZADOS OTRA VEZ
PASAR LAS HORAS SIN DECIR UNA PALABRA
QUIERO ESCAPARME DE ESTE ENCIERRO Y ESTRECHARNOS COMO AYER


Chorus
ESTA DISTANCIA
QUE POCO A POCO NOS ASFIXIA EL ALMA
ME DUELE MÁS NO PIERDO LA ESPERANZA DE VOLVER  A ESTAR CONTIGO UNA VEZ MÁS ESTA DISTANCIA QUE INEVITABLEMENTE NOS ATRAPA ES LA SEÑAL QUE YO NECESITABA PARA DARME CUENTA DE QUE TU ERES MI FELICIDAD

BRIDGE
QUIERA DIOS QUE ACABE NUESTRO SUFRIMIENTO...
QUE TU Y YO VOLVAMOS A EMPRENDER EL VUELO...

Esta Distancia
