Composed by Arnau and Luis Bolívar, “De La Mano” (“Holding Hands”) is a joyful, fun and also tender tune, a song that speaks of the most simple as well as the most elaborate ways to show love to that special someone that awakens the deepest of feelings within you. The track produced by Jose Gaviria & Toby Tobon has a reggae base with lyrics inspired by the singer’s own parents and their loving relationship.
