Diego Vergara's second album, with collaborations by Fakuta, Dadalú, Marcela Parra, Marvin Marlyn, among others, is a mantle of honesty which we can all wrap ourselves with. The long nights of confinement and curfew stir the interiors of an artist who is not afraid to record the processes he experienced during the last two years and transform them into songs.

The result of insomnia in the midst of the pandemic, a product of the anxiety and anguish of confinement. Diego Vergara presents his second full-length album under Sentinela del Norte, an album that organically follows "Parte del Paisaje" (2019), as per narration and form. Today we are introduced to 11 new songs in which the artist collaborated with Marcela Parra, Cami Cuesta and Pandilla Tercer Ojo, Fakuta, Dadalú, with scratches by Flakodiablo, Dj Roc P, and production guests such as Caiman's and Marvin Marlyn.

A long process, building songs with guests through emails, long days without being able to leave home, and sporadic visits to the studio when the health scenario allowed it. "During the composition of "Parte del Paisaje" I was dealing with many personal problems, hence the lyrics were more depressing. In "Un Año Sin Dormir" (A year without sleeping) I tried to approach subjects with a little more maturity in terms of lyrics, from a less victimizing and more analytical perspective", says the artist about his album born of uncertainties and sound explorations.

In addition to the main genre that is hip hop, in "Un Año Sin Dormir", Diego does not hesitate to flirt with electronic pop, shape dembow, and expose an intimate rap. "I tried to include several different types and forms of music to get out of the traditional hip hop framework. I also tried to use indirect inclusive language, writing more complex sentences where there were few gender marks. I am interested in anyone being able to identify with the lyrics, regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation," he explains.

A simil in sound to the ideas that invade him when he can't sleep, which in turn is a chronicle of the emotional healing process that he went through during the pandemic. A methodology of knowing how to recognize concerns, rediscovering personal value, missing who took you to that place of self-esteem, and then realizing that you can continue without that person, "because all falsehoods fall apart when you are locked up in your house and with a curfew".

With samples of films that accompanied Sentinela del Norte during the health crisis, and a list of several guests as it is usually done in the genre, but delivering heterogeneity in lyrics and voices, the album is a luxury of aesthetic resources with a honesty mantle that clothes smoothly. The work makes space for the sense of belonging; memories of sleepy and overwhelming years that can feel distant, although they are still diminishing, like those repetitive early mornings that we live between 2020 and 2021.
