"Minorías” is inspired by the struggle of all immigrants, especially from Central America and Mexico, who leave their homes in search of the 'American Dream,' at any cost. It is a special dedication to Claudia Gomez, a young woman from Guatemala who was murdered by a Border Patrol Ranger in Texas last year on May 23. She left her village on a journey with no return, her intention was to meet her boyfriend in Virginia, to find work to be able to pay for her university and return to her beloved Guatemaya. Instead, the only thing she gained was a shot in the head that ended her life...
"Minorías" is a tribute to all of those families who have suffered, who have been separated from their children and incarcerated, and to the many who lost their lives while in search of a better life and survival.

Muchas adversidades. So many adversities.

Yo no sé porque la vida fue tan cruel, I don’t know why life was so cruel
Porque allí dejo todo su corazón, Cuz there she left her heart
Su amor, su amor, Her love, her love
Mi amor, mi amor. My love, my love.
