“Madre" is dedicated to my Mother.
It's a portrait of motherhood from a son who desperately loves his mom. Mothers – the creators of life, portals into this world from the last – Mike Tyus
"In a child's eyes, a mother is a goddess. She can be glorious or terrible, benevolent or filled with wrath, but she commands love either way. I am convinced that this is the greatest power in the universe."
