Sorongo (Official Video)

Susana Baca

‘Sorongo’ is taken from the album Palabras Urgentes, released on 8th October 2021.

“It is a document of our life and its energy is birthed by the union of rhythm and soul. It finds a way to be both a song of the Caribbean and a song of the universe. It is, above all, unique. Within ‘Sorongo’, one can find intuition, strength, feeling and enunciation. I spent many nights trying to find the right way of singing ‘Sorongo’. in the end it is only with the presence of the musicians that accompanied me that it found vitality. I am sure that ‘Sorongo’ is faith found at the crossroad between feelings and rhythm.” — Susana Baca
