La Dolorosa is a collection of songs inspired by the cult of the Virgin in Latin America. Each song is inspired by prayers, stories of apparitions, and the collective fascination with the image and drama of the crying virgin. It is my hope that this music gives you access into a world where the matriarch dominates spirituality. La Virgen in the Latin American subconscious adopts the legacies of the goddesses that live our indigenous DNA. Pachamama, Coatlicue, Oshún, and others all exist as one maternal energy that gives us the desire for beauty and comforts us in our darkest hours.

Es mi esperanza que esta música le da acceso a un mundo donde la matriarca domina la espiritualidad. La Virgen en el subconsciente latinoamericano adopta los legados de las diosas que habitan nuestro ADN indígena. Pachamama, Coatlicue,Oshún, y otros, todos existen como una energía maternal que nos da el deseo de belleza y nos consuela en nuestras horas más oscuras.
