TUNE Gizmo Varillas - Gotta Getaway
Gotta Getaway is the first single from Gizmo Varillas' debut album 'El Dorado'.
The name comes from Latin American mythology. "El Dorado (The Golden One) is a mythical tribal chief of the Muisca native people of Colombia, who, as an initiation rite, covered himself with gold dust and dived into Lake Guatavita. The legends surrounding El Dorado changed over time, as it went from being a city, to a kingdom, and then finally an empire. (City of Gold)
Within Muisca society, Gold represents the energy contained in the trinity of Chiminigagua, which constitutes the creative power of everything that exists. Golden objects were made and then thrown into the sacred lake as offerings to the gods to encourage them to balance the equilibrium of the cosmos and ensure a stable relationship with their environment.
Artwork by the very talented Murnau Den Linden. This will also be the first release from Muisca Records.
