La risa, la pena, el carino, el amor,la fe, la concencia,el alma, mi alma,tu alma es ella.”
 
The smiles, the guilt, the warmth, the love, the faith, the consciousness, the soul, my soul, your soul…It’s all her.”

Ven, acércate. En tu destino no habrá lugar. Que no encontré.
 
Come, get closer. In your destiny there isn’t a place. That I wouldn’t find.
 

3.    Y Yo Tambien – Indigo

Ya mis palabras ni se entienden. Se han vuelto aire sin sonar, Diran que estoy un poco ido, Que no estoy aqui en realidad. Pero, soy el inicio diferente, Soy mi proposito al cantar.
 
Now my words aren’t even understood. They have turned into wind without a sound. They’ll say I’m a little gone, that I’m not really here. But I’m a different start. I’m singing my purpose.
 

4.   Jayá – Macha Colón Y Los Okapi

Y mi amardura contra el desamor vuelve a crecer.
 
And my stance against indifference.  Keeps on growing.
 

5.    El Sello – Ardnaxela (Featured Artist in painting above)

Y con una tras otro intentas borrar tu sello de soledad, tu sello del infeliz, que no puede dormir, no puedes dormir. Que pasa, que pasa que no puedes dormir?
 
And one after another you intend to erase your seal of loneliness, your seal of unhappiness, that you can’t sleep. What happened, what’s happening that you can’t sleep?”

6.    La Mañana Blanca – Fofe Y Los Fetiches

Y lo se, cada cual esta viviendo una tormenta. Nos seguimos queriendo, sin saber / nos extrañamos tanto, como ves.
 
And I know that everyone is living a storm. Yet we still love each other without knowing. We miss each other so much you see.

7.    Crackman – Campo Formio

Mostly instrumental Rock.

¿Y cómo será el final? ¿Cómo será el final?
 
How will the end be?

8.    La Vida Va – Pedo Capó

Even though he’s not technically an “indie artist” today, Capó was the first singer/songwriter I saw live in the island and is an amazing talent.

Se roban los bancos, Los parcos, Se cruzas los mares, Los hijos se alejan, Los viejos se quejan, Y se atoran los autos, Maldigo el tarado que no me da paso, Los políticos mienten, Secuestran tranquilo, Las flacas engordan, Rebaja la gorda, Los libros se comen debajo del polvo, La iglesia duerme, Los corazones sordosLa vida va. Vamos a ver. Pero pa’lante y con fe. Como el rio llega al mar. La vida va y se va. Y no hay manera papa.
 
They rob the banks, They cross the oceans, The kids rebel, The older people complain, And the cars break down, They curse the idiot that does not let you pass, The politicians lie, They sequester in secret, The skinny girls get fat, The fat girls get skinny,The books are eaten beneath the dirt, The church sleeps, The hearts are deaf, Life goes…Let’s see But we move ahead with faith, As the river reaches the ocean,Life goes, and goes, and goes…
And there’s no other way friend.

9.    Oigo Voces – Mima

Song starts at 3:28.

Pero voz. Eso sí. Porque yo te escucho a ti. Cantando. La canción que ahora canto aquí.
 
But voice, yes, because I heard you. Singing. The song that I now sing here.
