LISTEN — Café Tacvba Featured On NPR

June 26th, 2017

Every month, NPR Music hits up 10 hosts, music directors and writers from public radio stations across the country for the new songs that just won’t let them go. It’s always exciting to watch the picks pour in — both to hear the range of music represented and to learn why those songs have been on everyone’s minds.

Café Tacvba, ‘El Mundo En Que Nací
from Jei Beibi

“El Mundo En Que Nací” is a lullaby from a father to a child, but it’s also a love song. It’s about a father holding his child in his arms for the first time — a singular, enduring moment in which he experiences a love that is uniquely real and a responsibility that is uniquely awesome. It’s about entering a brave new world and discovering a reason to continue. From the first few exquisite moments of the song to the to the strings and harpsichord accents that bring it to a close, the chord progression is both familiar and powerful, the song’s story and music effortlessly united. Clearly inspired by Pachelbel’s Canon in D, the song has a beauty and simplicity that create an easy peace. This is the most stunning piece of music I’ve heard in 2017.
