    MORTAL! René never ceases to amaze me.

    I enjoyed the journey of getting to know where his roots and ancestors where from based on his DNA. It is something that I personally would like to do someday.

    And the fact that while doing the journey made music with the influence of every country he visited, just wow.

    Residente talks about how we are all sons and daughters of the world and how music unite us all. A DNA test is the conductor thread between Rene and his musical journey.  Definitely an audiovisual that is charged up with sincerity, talent, deep meaning and true beauty.

    tal vez me hubiese gustado más si rené no hablase así de la música pop actual. a mí tampoco me fascina del todo, pero no siempre quiero escuchar música folk. a veces, prefiero la música pop que tanto "nos daña", simplemente es pegadiza y me hace sentir mejor. igual, toda la historia detrás de sus canciones me hicieron llorar </3
