The music video for Carmen Hernandez‘s version of ‘Yuyo Verde’ is finally out! This famous tango was composed in 1944 by the great poet and lyricist Homero Expósito and the composer, bandoneonist and orchestra conductor Domingo Federico. Staying true to tango roots, the singer does a beautiful job of expressing the pain and heartbreak within this piece. The video takes us through cobbled streets and shows us a couple of dancers performing a traditional tango. A moving listen and powerful watch, this song is perfect to explore the nostalgia and emotion that Carmen Hernandez can offer.
Carmen Hernandez is a singer dedicated to her art, from her warm voice to her love for Latin American culture, you can count on her ability to move her listeners. She was born in Bogotá and first saw recognition for her talent when she was very young. Her first debut with her brother Luis won them the ‘Talentos Juveniles‘ award sponsored by Radio Caracol, and brought them to radio and tv shows such as Telecirco Colombina. Her talent even moved composer Jorge Camargo Spolidore to invite her to perform with his orchestra, Femenina De Colombia. Since then, she has performed in LA musicals and conquered Paris with her music. Always inspired by her Colombian Creole roots and Argentine tango, Hernandez has made music that comes straight from her soul. ‘Yuyo Verde’ is from her most recent album, entitled ‘Al Evocarte Tango Querido’, out now for your listening pleasure.
