About "La Otra" On April 30th, Sofía Rei releases her new single La Otra, a preview of her upcoming album Umbral. The song is based on a poem by the great Chilean writer Gabriela Mistral. Gabriela was the first Latin American to win a Nobel Prize in Literature. Sofía found her poem “La Otra” (the Other Woman) on a trip to her hometown, the Elqui Valley in Chile. Over booming drum beats and chirping flute embellishments, “La Otra” is an exciting tribute to Mistral with instrumentation based in Colombian dance music.
