about

Setenta y ocho años este año, Totó es ahora una figura legendaria conocida y amada en todo el mundo por los millones de corazones que ha tocado con su voz conmovedora, carisma inspirador y naturaleza amable y divertida. Más que eso, ella también es madre de tres hijos y abuela de nueve nietos, una mujer sabia que ha experimentado dificultades y alegría a lo largo de su larga carrera.

Este álbum es parte de una colección retrospectiva que celebra el viaje musical de Totó, una serie que está acompañada de historias de aventuras y experiencias notables. Las canciones en este disco provienen del álbum Tambolero, que cuenta la historia de su relación con Inglaterra, y Oye Manita, que explora su tiempo en Francia. Este álbum también presenta una pista inédita, grabada en 2017.

Lado A del próximo álbum OYE MANITA - incluye LA VERDOLAGA
Lado B del álbum TAMBOLERO - incluye la canción clásica EL PESCADOR

La nueva canción es un instrumental VIENTO SUELTO, una pieza de gaita y tambor que Totó baila en el escenario.
La canción LA VERDOLAGA fue sampleada por Jay-Z el año pasado en el álbum 4:44 para la canción We Family.
