"Manu is my personal exploration of identity as a first generation Cuban / Colombian American and classical violinist. But while my primary aim was to thread the needle between those distinct musical worlds, as I was writing it became clear I was also enveloping other musical idioms such as electronic music and jazz. So when putting together this remix record, I thought it would be interesting to call upon friends and artists whom could speak to the myriad influences of the original album. The result is a collection of tracks that chart a unique journey which, in an alternate world, parallels that of Manu."
