Cool Track: Captures – “Son​á​mbula”

Ecuadorian singer Huaira has created a buzz and a tuned in fanbase across Latin America through just a small number of releases and unforgettable features with the likes of Nicola Cruz’s (“Prender Del Alma”), Los Espiritus, Rodrigo Gallardo, Fernando Milagros and more. Now, she is coming together with the talented Berlin based producer Captures for a series of special singles on Wonderwheel. The first, “Sonámbula”, a “realismo mágico” song, sonically creates a mystical vibe through it’s dark bassline, unearthly synths & sound effects that swirl in the darkness of the track, while Huaira’s vocals range from interspersed words to near-chantlike verses and lilting phrases. Lyrically, the track talks about the space of the waking dream. It speaks of our choice to be present in this illusion or dormant while we walk through each passing day…the storytelling of the dream, the eternal lover within ourselves and the many mirrors we encounter in our relationship to others.


Mírame a los ojos se que no me
Amo decifrarte como es que me entiendes
Sudo por las noches
Sueño con serpientes
Grito y no se escucha
Canto entre los dientes

A los ojos
Sudo por las noches
entre los dientes

Suelto expectativas
Y ellas me esquivan
Duermen las quebradas
Yo siembro en sus gradas
Mojo en tus orillas
Mis labios de arcilla
Respiro bajo el agua
cuando tú me cantas

Tus manos me alimentan
cuando sueño despierta
hablamos en idiomas
que abren una puerta
cruzó al otro lado
me encuentro con tu abrazo
el aire que atraviesa
respira sin promesas


Sleep walker

Look into my eyes,
I know I don’t you lie
I love decipher how you understand me
I sweat at night
I dream of snakes
I scream and can’t be heard
I sing between my teeth

To the eyes
I sweat at night
between the teeth

I loose expectations and they avoid me
the ravines sleep
I sow in its stands
wet on your shores
my clay lips
I breathe underwater when you sing to me your hands feed me when i dream awake we speak in languages that open a door crossed to the other side I find your hug the air that passes through breathe without promises.
