Berklee alumni Luis Gamarra and Edmar Colón perform their original composition "La Paz." As stated by Edmar, this is a song that depicts our current social dilemmas and questions what is the meaning of peace. Luis and I wanted the lyrics to tell the story and ask the pressing question, 'What Is Peace?' while the music presented a framework that evokes hope and solace to the listener.

Songs for World Peace is a global initiative by musicians from all over the world to promote peace through the power of music. Their goal is to release songs from every country in the world by Sep 21, 2021. Luis Gamarra produced this song to be a part of the initiative. Listen to the 60 songs from 60+ countries that were released on Sep 21, 2020. Learn more information and get involved. https://songsforworldpeace.org/

Letra Español

La Paz

“¿Qué es La Paz mundial?”
De niño, pregunté
Era el día de “La Paz”
Quería entender porque.

Mi abuelo contestó,
sonriente afirmó:
“Por todos los tratados
Para convivir en paz.”

¿Cuál Paz? me pregunto hoy,
Si el odio nos contagia diáriamente,
Cuando vamos a aprender que hay mucho por hacer?

Y, ¿Qué es paz?
La Paz Mundial...
Si todavía hay guerra,

Y cuando se duerme con hambre.
Y, ¿Qué es paz?
La Paz Mundial...
Si todavía mi color,
No me deja respirar.

-- Interludio --

El mundo de color
Es como lo veía yo
Un día desperté,
La magia se perdió.

“¿Qué es La Paz mundial?”
Si no se ama en Libertad,
Si hay niños sin comer,
Y odio por doquier.

¿Cuál Paz? Me pregunto hoy,
Si el odio nos contagia diáriamente,
Cuando vamos a aprender que hay mucho por hacer?

Y, ¿Qué es paz?
La Paz Mundial...
Si todavía hay guerra,
Y cuando se duerme con hambre.

Y, ¿Qué es paz?
La Paz Mundial...
Si todavía mi color,
No me deja respirar.

-- Interludio --

Y, ¿Qué es la paz?
La Paz Mundial...
Si todavía hay guerra,
Y cuando se duerme con hambre.

Y, ¿Qué es paz?
La Paz Mundial...
Si todavía mi color,
No me deja respirar.

Si todavía mi color,
Si todavía mi orientación,
No me deja respirar…

¿Qué es la Paz Mundial…?
