“La canción” is the humorous and refreshing story of Rafa, a young man from The Bronx with a passion for music. 

One night, Rafa dreams of a song he has never heard before and when he awakens he inexplicably knows the lyrics to the song. Captivated by the song and with the desire to adapt it to urban music, Rafa embarks on a quest to find its author, but in his search unexpectedly discovers the truth about his origins.  

In this new musical, Rafa tells his story through an amalgam of musical genres from Rap to tropical tunes like Salsa, Merengue and Bachata.

Original Songs by VICO C.
Written by Cándido Tirado
