Marca MP, Despegando el Vuelo, Vol. 2 (Marca MP)
After surviving a traffic accident that left him with a “shattered femur and no recollection whatsoever of the crash,” singer Pedro Vargas focused on evolving as a composer. “The recovery was lengthy, but I took advantage of the downtime to write a bunch of new tunes and in the process grow as a songwriter,” he said in an official statement. The result is Marca MP’s five-song EP dubbed Despegando el Vuelo, Vol. 2. Penned by Vargas, DEV flaunts the Regional Mexican group’s musical proposal: spirited corridos (“Acá en Guanajuato”) and romantic ballads (“Ya Acabo”) with a fresh interplay between tuba and guitar.
