This song is from the seventies. It was the time when Sixto recorded two CDs working with the biggest producers of the music industry. However, he never became famous in the US so he decided to stop singing. He had only few fans and nobody knew who he really was. Indeed, people never cared about him. Sixto didn’t have the choice and decided to go back to work to earn money and survive.
One day, a girl moved to South Africa and brought Sixto’s CD in her luggage. It was a crucial moment. His music succeeded in Africa but never went beyond.
A documentary was shot last year and some people recognized him at first sight. Sixto wanted to perform on stage to thank people for the kindness they had shown towards him.
I really like listening to this song because it makes me feel more optimistic and think about the future: It also gives me the desire to travel and discover new places. I think that we can easily compare the tone of his voice to Bob Dylan’s. The lyrics are very simple and the rhythm is monotonous.
He ponders crucial questions about the true meaning of life. I am pretty sure that everybody can identify with this song and apply it to their cherished family and friends.
I consider this song is very modest and simple. It doesn’t last very long. Sixto has a talent to pause at the best moments.
Finally, it’s a song that all generations can appreciate. This song has the merit to gather people and to bring joy.
