Panasuyo: Tierra Querida

Venezuelan singer, songwriter and producer Aureliano Mendez, better known to his fans as Panasuyo, represents a new wave of young musicians mixing traditional Venezuelan sounds with rock, pop, reggae and electronica. "Pana suyo" means "Your mate" in Venezuelan Spanish. Tierra Querida is taken from his debut album "Monte y Culebra" (literally, "Scrubland and Snakes"), a term some Venezuelans use quite dismissively to describe anywhere outside the big cities.
