Juan Wauters shares the second single ‘A Volar’, from his upcoming record La Onda de Juan Pablo. The beautiful and buoyant song about “dreaming wildly” was written in Mexico City and features multiple musicians that Juan met in Garibaldi, a popular square in Mexico City where musicians for hire gather.
Mexico City was one of the many stops he made along a journey throughout South and Central America over the past few years. Juan explains he found a neighbourhood that took him and his family in. “I became very attached to many people there. The people who I hung out with the most were a family that lived next door. They and I would spend a lot of time together and nurtured a beautiful relationship.”
In the accompanying video, director Matthew Volz genuinely captures Juan’s relationships via day-to-day life with his new found family. La Onda de Juan Pablo (The World of Juan Pablo) is sung entirely in Spanish and recorded with local musicians along his travels.
