“I was very depressed and one day, as well as playing, my son Francisco called me to the studio (which they have in their own house) and told me: let’s see, mom, you who play the cajon, sit down and join me. Then he told me why don’t you play and sing something and that’s when I started singing a cappella. That’s where the idea of ​​making this album was born. Later, we were adding other songs until suddenly we made this wonderful repertoire, with very heartfelt songs, in which the voice, the guitar and a cajon could shine.

Eva Ayllón remembers that the first song they recorded for “Stay at home” It was “Arroz con concolón”, “each of the musicians from their homes, with the tools that we had at hand because we couldn’t get together. Then came ‘Último wish’, a song in which I play the cajon, which excited me a lot. Everyone has to know that I am a frustrated percussionist, Gigio Parodi keeps helping me with some things. I’ve stopped playing it for a bit because my hands hurt, but my intention is to keep doing it”.

The Peruvian artist, who in 2019 was distinguished with a Grammy for Musical Excellence for her prolific career, shares the shortlist for this new nomination with Susana Baca. “It is the first time that I share a nomination with Susana. The important thing is that we are compatriots, so the merits of both are credit to Peru. I consider that this single nomination is already a triumph.
