"La Rana" by Agustín Pereyra Lucena Quartet
1980 | Argentinian composer and guitarist


Go deeper.
Throughout La Rana we hear not only Agustín’s fabled guitar playing, but his talent as a vocalist. He also provided the heartening illustration for the cover art, which perfectly fits the cordial, inviting tone of the music. Inspired in equal measure by South American rhythms and Norwegian glaciers, mountains and waterfalls, La Rana is filled with the warmth, humility and sincerity of a man seizing a joyful moment in life through music.

Perhaps it was mere coincidence, but like the frog the album is named after, Agustín always seemed to find himself near a body of water. From Buenos Aires to Rio, to the Mediterranean coast and Oslo, La Rana could be seen as a reflection of Agustín’s natural pull towards the deep blue.
