We discovered a duo, Silvia & Karmen while taking in the sights and sounds of The Cumbre Tajin Music Festival in Veracruz, Mexico. Even though we don’t speak Spanish, Sarah and I decided to cover one of their tunes and revamp it a bit. “Antes de Rendirte” is a originally a very upbeat and poppy tune; we changed the key (major to minor), slowed it down, used a Bossa Nova beat, but kept the Spanish.
So here it is, all recorded on our iPhones!
