The music of award-winning composer Gabriela Ortiz is rooted in contemporary Mexican life and traditional song. Ortiz composes like a documentary filmmaker or journalist would. As a result, a work like her opera ‘Únicamente la verdad’ becomes a cinematic tale of narco-trafficking, gruelling migratory journeys and tragic loss.
