An inspired work dedicated to my daughter, Aina Viciana on her 18th anniversary.

Aina had for years been asking me to have a piece of music his and original, dedicated and directed solely to her. And, of course, this can not be forced, it must go straight from the heart and at the right time.

She saw that her mother had many dedicated pieces (Darling, I love you - My love - An angel to earth - My luck - The empress of my heart), and that even his older brother, Aniol, He also has a piece directed at him, or rather to the feeling between fear and excitement in the coming of the first child (Lullaby).

Even so, in 2014 I did a small piece of work for piano dedicated to the two women in my house (The women of my house), but of course, in this work the inspiration is shared between her and her mother, reason why really a piece made and thought about her, did not exist.

Until now.

 

Aina is a work of jazzie, but not improvisational, with a central lyrical section, made with the heart of a proud father towards my little gem. All my love and admiration for her is embodied in this piece for piano and voice.

The play was released in a recorded version just the day we celebrated the feast of its 18 years, a beautiful and unrepeatable surprise. And as an adult, this was my show for her.

For many beautiful years.

With all my love

Diu una llegenda urbana
que molt a prop d’aquí,
pots trobar de matinada
la noia del vestit daurat.
 
Si és així,
no ho dubtis més,
i entrega-li el teu cor.
Te’l tornarà com nou.
 
És bonica i eixerida,
i el seu somriure és gran.
Corre a veure si la trobes,
ella et farà feliç a l’instant.
 
Si és així,
no ho dubtis més,
i entrega-li el teu cor.
Te’l tornarà com nou.
 
S’enfila al damunt de la lluna plena
com si fos un cavall platejat.
La veuràs cavalcant,
defensant tota forma de vida.
 
El seu esperit mai no el veus caigut del tot.
 
Més enllà d’aquella plaça
l’han vist passejant,
potser encara no fa massa
que al cel tot era brillant.
 
Si és així,
no ho dubtis més,
i entrega-li el teu cor.
Te’l tornarà com nou.
 
Diu una llegenda urbana
que molt a prop d’aquí,
pots trobar de matinada
el teu amor.
 
Si és així,
no ho dubtis més,
i entrega-li el teu cor.
Te’l tornarà com nou.
 
Diuen que de tant en tant,
la veuen passejant.
Aina, el seu nom.
 
 
 
 

AINA

It says an urban legend
that very close to here,
you can find it in the morning
the girl in the golden dress.

If so,
do not hesitate anymore,
and give to her your heart.
He will return you as new.

It is beautiful and started out,
and his smile is great.
Run to see if you find it,
she will make you happy instantly.

If so,
do not hesitate anymore,
and give to her your heart.
He will return you as new.

She gets on the full moon
as if it were a silver horse.
You will see her riding,
defending every form of life.

His spirit never sees him completely fallen.

Beyond that place
have seen her walking,
maybe not too long ago
that in the sky everything was bright.

If so,
do not hesitate anymore,
and give to her your heart.
He will return you as new.

It says an urban legend
that very close to here,
you can find it in the morning
your love

If so,
do not hesitate anymore,
and give to her your heart.
He will return you as new.

They say that from time to time,
they see her walking.
Aina, her name.
