I took a solo trip to Perú back in 2016 that changed my life.
I met my teacher and friend Beto Martínez in a small town called Urubamba

in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. He welcomed me to his studio and taught me

this simple and irresistible song about a little flower that is full of life and dreams.

Flor de amapola, amapolita
Dame tus sueños, dame tu vida

Dame tu vida amapolita

Little poppy seed flower

Give me your life, give me your dreams

Little Poppy seed flower

Give me your dreams, little poppy seed flower
