Tocando el Sol is the second single from the album Un Mar de Calma by the Venezuelan songwriter Lasca. Lasca is a respected and renowned artist in the Venezuelan music scene, first as bassist for the popular band Malanga and recently as Producer of important albums like Será of La Vida Boheme, winner of Latin Grammy 2013 for Best Rock Album. The music video Tocando el Sol is a tilt-shift of Caracas, an energetic and chaotic city, as many of the capitals of the world, but in this case is shown as a playground, like a miniature movement, giving to the city a naive and dreamlike aspect accompanying of soft music.

Upon completion of high school, he moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina, where he studied Filmmaking at the Institute of Cinematographic Arts of Avellaneda.
