Solidaridad is a Latin-American style setting of a Mexican poem by Amado Nervo. The short poem directs the singer to sing, jump, run, shine and fly with references to larks, waterfalls and eagles. The title refers to our “solidarity” with nature. The rhythmic and dance-like melody is given further energy and drive with a flashy accompaniment. The brief Spanish text can be quickly mastered.
