After living in the US for 12 years undocumented, Raka Dun was able to visit his homeland of Panama to shoot this video in December 2013 and complete the story he wanted to tell via his El Negrito Dun Dun project.  The video shows the beauty of some of the most neglected places of the world as El Negrito Dun Dun sings & raps about missing his mother all those years while living in the US. “Girl of my heart, I dedicate this song to you, Come back soon to my heart, Girl of my heart” is what the song’s hook says.

In the new video, “Chica De Mi Corazón” picks up from where the previous, “Sueño Americano” left off.  They are a 2-part video series  that tell one singular and complex story within the world’s broken immigration system.  They are the videos celebrate these stories, struggle, hardship of mothers around the world who risk it all for their families.  The story of what can happen when people are forced from their homelands because of poverty and the dangerous world that awaits.  A Problem that is not only found in US, but in many area and counties around the world.  

In the video, we see Raka Dun’s character in jail awaiting execution we see in “Sueño,” with a nostalgia for the innocence and place he once called home, singing out to the woman who gave him life, who is so far away now. “Chica de mi corazón, Te dedico esta canción, Regresa pronto a mi corazón, Chica de mi Corazón.”
