This Audio book is based on a published book of the same title by Editorial Norma in Mexico. “Rene y el pigmeo en la selva” is the title in Spanish, the language the book was published originally and also narrated in this CD. It means “Rene and the pygmy in the jungle”. Rene is the name of a kid, an ordinary kid, neither the tallest, nor the shortest, neither skinny nor fatty, but when the occasion arises, he becomes as intrepid as any brave young character of any adventure story.
The audio book is narrated by the author, Emma Romeu, with music, sound design and engineering by Alejandro N Rodriguez, a Cuban born sound engineer with more than 20 years of an international career in everything related with sound. He is now an Associate Professor at the Berklee College of Music, in Boston, teaching at the Music Production and Engineering Department.

The author wonderfully narrates the story, all characters with their own characteristic voice and personality, and, don’t forget, their own music theme. There is a lot of work behind this project. Long hours reading, adjusting the voice tone to perfectly match the character, listening, reading again, and then lots and lots of more hours editing and transforming some voices, composing, arranging, recording and mixing the music originally created for the main characters and actions in this story, then mixing the whole audio book, a 74-minutes-long amazing sound landscape which will nourish the imagination of kids, young adults and adults alike.

His father, Nilo Rodriguez was a recognized music composer, educator and advocator of music and culture, his mother, Elvira Fuentes, the most famous name in Solfeggio teaching in Cuba, his sister, Ariana, a pianist playing all, I mean all types of music.
