Coral Gables, Florida – September 16, 2021 – Award-winning broadcaster and podcaster Allan Tépper is pleased to announce the release of his first bilingual educational song project in collaboration with popular Spaniard star singer María Esnoz. Titled “Let it be called Castilian — Debe llamarse castellano”, the song makes a parody of a now debunked coverup on the most widespread of all official Spanish languages, all of which have their own unique names.
As of now, the song is exclusively available on Allan Tépper’s online radio shows and podcasts CapicúaFM and BeyondPodcasting. On September 22, 2021, the song is slated to be made available for free via CC (Creative Commons) Attribution-NoDerivatives 4.0 International (CC BY-ND 4.0). Media outlets interested to play the track in radio, podcasts, or TV shows may request the uncompressed WAV file and/or the audiogram version of the song using this linked form.
“Let it be called Castilian — Debe llamarse castellano” has been written and produced by Allan Tépper. The song also features the mesmerizing voice of María Esnoz. Both the singers hold a background in language and/or linguistics which brings a special edge to the song altogether. While Allan is a famous language activist, María Esnoz boasts a degree in linguistics from the esteemed Autonomous University of Madrid (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid).

“We are excited to announce that we have recently released our much-awaited bilingual educational song project, ‘Let it be called Castilian — Debe llamarse castellano’, this month. It is currently available on my radio shows and podcasts and will be available for other media outlets shortly. We have designed the song to be bilingual to widen its reach among non-Castilian speaking people. After Castilian, English is the most spoken language in the world and we believe the English version will be able to take our song to the masses and let people know many interesting facts about the Castilian language”, stated Allan.
“It was amazing to work with María Esnoz. I have always been a fan of her voice and I am deeply grateful to have her on the production team for ‘Let it be called Castilian — Debe llamarse castellano’.”
Interestingly, the production of the song took place in three different locations. Allan wrote the lyrics and recorded his sections in Coral Gables/Miami, Florida, while María recorded her performance in Madrid, Spain. Allan is also the editor of the song; after editing, sound engineer Chris Curran performed the final mix and mastering for the track in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
“It was great to work with Chris Curran as well. He comes with a wealth of experience in the field of mixing and mastering music and I am hoping to work on more projects with him in future.”
