iLe Drops ‘Donde Nadie Más Respira’ Ahead of the Election

“Take action to confront those in power and face the issues so that we can make real progress,” folk artist says. “It’s time to overthrow these twisted systems”

Ahead of the U.S. presidential election and the gubernatorial election in Puerto Rico, Ileana “iLe” Cabra Joglar has dropped “Donde Nadie Más Respira.”

The title translates to “Where No One Else Breathes.” Directed by Cesar Berrios, the video features the Puerto Rican folk artist running through trees and arriving at a beach. She elevates into the air, her sneakers lifting off the sand. “They opened up our tissue/And made the village bleed,” she sings in Spanish. “They slaughtered the words/To kill our thought.”

According to iLe, the song is about confronting abuses of power to make a meaningful change. “With this song, I hope to encourage people to get involved,” she said. “Take action to confront those in power and face the issues so that we can make real progress. It’s time to overthrow these twisted systems.”

“Donde Nadie Más Respira” follows the single “En Cantos,” a duet released with Mexican alt-pop star Natalia Lafourcade. Last year, she released her second album Almaduraand collaborated with Bad Bunny and Residente on the Puerto Rican protest song “Afilando Los Cuchillos.”
