Kristof Buntinx, the Brussels designer with a passion for music, recently decided that he would release a brand new song every three weeks. At the end of April he gave us the very danceable 'You're in the army now', and now he is releasing the wonderful 'Maria, Maria'.
Music and lyrics call up the image of a desolate Mexican landscape. At night, in a deserted village, a lonely poor beggar is sitting against a half collapsed wall of a dilapidated house. In despair he is staring into thin air. Suddenly a bright star in the sky catches his eye. Its light brings hope into the dark night and reminds the man of the holy Mother Mary.
The latin inspired 'Maria Maria' evokes a quiet southern atmosphere. The lyrics of the song fit this time of year wonderfully, since for Catholics, May is Mary month. Although, for the singer, Maria in the song also symbolizes a loving and protective mother figure, who is always willing to comfort her child in her arms. Even if everybody lets you down, you will still have your mom to fall back on.
In May we celebrate Mother's Day. This beautiful song by Buntinx is a lovely gift and a tender tribute to unconditional motherly love.
