Graphite Publishing puts it beautifully, stating “‘La barca de oro’ is a beloved song in Mexico, both used to say farewell before a voyage and a standard of memorial and funeral services. Written by Abundio Martínez, an indigenous composer of 19th-century Mexico, this work is rooted in the salon dances that were popular during his lifetime. This arrangement, by Mexican conductor Ahmed Anzaldúa, stays authentic to the roots of this song while highlighting the various nuances of the text, looking to connect all audiences to the deep meaning this song holds for many Mexicans… especially those living away from their homeland.”
