Pal Norte

Calle 13 y Orishas did a song together, although oddly enough only Calle 13 appears in the videos. It is about going North . . Calle 13 are Puerto Rican, which is a part of the United States so they do have the advantage of being American citizens. Orishas are Cubanos, currently living in different European cities . . . but the song to me is powerful.

It is cliche, but holds a lot of true emotion and sentiment for immigrantes.

Whatch it HERE

It also makes me think of how interesting it the way people refer to El Norte.

Me fui por alla – I went there (over there)
Se fue al mas alla – Mas alla is heaven . . . this might just be me, but I think it is interesting
