We’re excited to announce a collaboration album between recordings artists and arranger Van Dyke Parks and harpist and poet Verónica Valerio.
This record is a Chamber-music Suite of Songs of the Yucatan, featuring the poetry of Verónica Valerio and orchestrated by Van Dyke Parks. Starting with a new arrangement of Agustin Lara’s classic »Veracruz« the album transports us to “a place of pyramids and pre-Collumbian history” following that place and time with three originals by Verónica Valerio called »Cielito Lindo«, »The Flight of the Guacamaya« and »Camino a casa«.
The Album »Only in America« will be released on June 11th via Modern Recordings:
While waiting, get a taste of the great range of productions that Van Dyke Parks was involved in:
