“No Veo Nada” was written using a piece of Zezé Fassmor’s poetry. Zezé became blind at 25, 10 years ago, due to a rare disease (sympathetic ophthalmia) resulting from a penetrating eye injury. Despite all of the obstacles that he has confronted he has moved forward, creating his own poetry and promoting other artists and musicians. Living in between reality and the dream world, he finds peace through acceptance, diving deep into his being, and his desire to live and love. Symbolically through this song, I am the “dulce voz,” the sweet voice, helping him to “see the horizon”.
I have launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for buying equipment needed for a home studio so Zezé can start a podcast to further his artistic productions and the promotional efforts he makes for other independent artists and musicians.
