Dónde Está el Amor? – iaki Vallejo (ft. Thando)
An anthem of urgent love
The latest release from Iaki urges us to love the planet.
Iaki’s multifaceted creative expression hits a high note with the release of her latest single “Donde está el amor” (“Where is the love?”), a latin pop/soul anthem that talks to humanity’s waning love for family and for the planet, and to the urgency to rekindle it. In Iaki’s own words, the song talks about “the missing love for our families, our children and our earth.”
A veteran of international and cross-cultural collaboration, Iaki has worked with master drummer David Jones and producer and rapper Alexis Play. This time, she has teamed up with Thando, Melbourne’s “First Lady of Soul and R&B”, with whom she co-wrote and recorded the song via the intermittent lockdowns of 2020 and 2021.
The song’s video was produced, directed and edited by Iaki herself, in yet another creative venture for an artist who is already prolific in music, visual arts and printmaking. The concept features female hands at work, highlighting the role of women as “crafters of life”.
