Songs for Mary Magdalene
My band Raquel Z. Rivera & Ojos de Sofía released in 2010 the CD Las 7 salves de La Magdalena / 7 Songs of Praise for The Magdalene featuring songs of praise for the mythical Mary Magdalene. I composed most of the lyrics and music, but received key creative input and support from dear friends who had also been captivated by the Magdalene—chief among them was Tanya Torres.
This CD would not have happened without her love, companionship and paintings.
Below, a video of our CD's last track titled "La 7ma salve / The 7th Salve" and featuring concert footage, a behind-the-scenes look at the CD cover art photo shoot, and many of Tanya's gorgeous images.
