"Music my passion"
THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS / 2015
“This song makes me cry” The Last of the Mohicans, composed by Trevor Jones and Randy Edelman for the film of the same name, is the signature tune of Alexandro Querevalú. As the heading indicates, this masterpiece not only makes the performer cry but also millions of people all over the world! The sentiments expressed in Alexandro´s interpretation of the music has a uniting effect on the hearts of people of all races, nations, religions and cultures.
Alexandro Querevalú is a brilliant performer, one of the best of his kind, and the one whose popularity has spread more than that of any other performer by means of social networks worldwide to the United States, Europe, Asia, the Arab countries and Australia. This is due to the unique way that he plays these indigenous instruments of both North and South America. The versatility, the eloquence, the sadness and the happiness which he expresses in his musical interpretations are felt deep within the soul, which is why he himself says “this song makes me cry”.
I can hear the cries of a million souls in your voice my brother fly on”
