Click here for a link to my transcription and translation: VIVIR by DJ AFRO (feat Carlos Fraga)
Searching the dollar bin at Cactus Records in Houston, I found this gem by Venezuelan DJ Afro, founder of renowned acid-jazz-funk group Los Amigos Invisibles.
Listening to the first nine tracks is akin to walking down a long stretch of Caribbean water, passing by bar after bar after bar, each with its own unique and harmonious sound that ultimately comes together to form one hell of a soundtrack on your passage toward a setting sun, perhaps.
Track ten, “Vivir,” with a feature by motiviational TV personality, Carlos Fraga, provides the blanket upon which to lay your weary from dancing and drinking. A hell of a track, “Vivir.”
So I tried my hand as a transcription and translation for those of you who want to follow along. Hope you enjoy it. Let me know what you thought of the song in the comment section below.
