One of the singers of “A la cima”, Ana Tijoux, who is currently on tour in Europe, participated through a video introducing the song to the world. “Sadly, I’m not there. I’m far away but I’m close in a different way through music. I was honored that DJ Bitman invited me to participate in the song, an anthem for the Games, along with our brothers from Movimiento Original. It’s a song we made with a lot of love,” she revealed. 

The big secret was revealed at 1:43 p.m. It starts with the lines “América de Pie… Santiago 2023” (America stands up… Santiago 2023) and continues with lines dedicated to the self-improvement and emotion of the athletes, the Chilean identity and the meeting point offered by the most important multisport event of the continent.

The composer and producer, DJ Bitman, commented: “it’s a milestone in our careers, we’re representing this sporting event with culture, it reflects its spirit and also defends the identity of the artists, we’re very happy.”

Regarding what they wanted to express with the lyrics, one of the singers of Movimiento Original, Stailok, said “it’s to always go to the top with optimism, with a positive message to encourage the athletes who are going to participate in this major competition and for those who are doing it for the first time, to do it with all their hearts, because we can all make it.”

The Santiago 2023 official song “A la cima” it’s already available on Spotify and YouTube.
