Sofia Kourtesis Enlists Manu Chao for New Song “Estación Esperanza”: Listen

Sofia Kourtesis has shared a new song, her first original track since last year’s EP Fresia Magdalena. It’s called “Estación Esperanza,” and the French-Spanish singer Manu Chao joins her. The track is released via Ninja Tune. Check out “Estación Esperanza” below.

In a press release, Kourtesis said:

“Estación Esperanza” is all about hope. I’m hopeful my mother will get better, I’m hopeful the world will begin to heal, I’m hopeful this song will bring you light on dark days. I first wrote this song after listening to Manu Chao. To me Manu Chao has always represented hope, his lyrics were like a bible to me growing up. This song is for him, my mother and all those activists working hard to make this world better…. Never lose hope!

Kourtesis, a Berlin-based Peruvian producer, issued Fresia Magdalena last March, following 2020’s Sarita Colonia and an earlier self-titled EP. She has since shared a Tourist remix of “La Perla” and an update of “Juntos” by the UK producer Lawrence Guy.
