“Hacia Lo Ignoto” was inspired by the poem of the same name by Cuban poet Dulce María Borrero. The poem likens the poet's heart to a dying bird watching white doves (symbols of dreams and freedom) pass through the sky. The heart yearns to follow the doves and experience their serene journey but remains trapped, unable to escape the confines of the poet's chest. This composition seeks to capture the yearning reflected in the poet's verses. It is dedicated to Iliana Matos.
