“El Duelo” always new, always powerful

4 06 2009

Even after so long, “El Duelo” always amazes me.  Every time.  The lyrics always reach deep inside my soul to heal, to stir, to hurt… suavemente.

“Algo Esta Cambiando”

23 07 2008

This song is very appropriate right now.  Julieta has a way of expressing important emotions in simple ways.  Algo esta Cambiando.

Mana 2007 Concert Review – New York

21 03 2007


Mana is my favorite studio and live band. As such, I hold them to a higher standard than other bands. Their performance was a bit lacking in some aspects. I had fun because I had great company and well… also because Mana is Mana. Mana is like Pizza, even when it’s bad it’s good. So here it goes… I tell it like I see it.


The length of the concert left a lot to be desired as well. In other years, the show started promptly at 8:00pm and it finished at 11:00pm. 3 hours!!! This year, the ticket said 7:00pm but the show did not start until 8:30pm. Late! And it ended early, at 10:45pm. 2 hours and 15 minutes only!!! They could have performed five or six songs in these 45 minutes. What happened to “Corazon Espinado”, “Te Llevare Al Cielo”, and “Sabanas Frias”?

The beginning shows a short clip of Mexican immigrants jumping over the Read the rest of this entry »

Esmée Denters – Crazy Place

25 01 2007

This is the lastest song recorded by Esmée Denters.  It’s called “Crazy Place”.  The song has a little bit of a social message, especially because the video shows pictures of children in third world countries.  The girl has a good heart.

She writes her own lyrics and I presume that she composes the melody as well. But I wonder who arranges the music for her.  It’s pretty simple: a simple R&B beat, and a guitar spelling out chords.  Not bad.

Te lo Agradezco Pero No – Alejandro Sanz y Shakira

20 01 2007

Aqui les va unas de las mejores canciones de los ultimos an~os. Por supuesto es un dueto de Alejandro y Shakira. La cancion es simple en todo aspecto: unas congas llevando el ritmo, una guitarrita marcando los acordes, la letra que casi es prosa, pero la melodia lleva gran sentimiento que da un sabor a vino rojo en el corazon… bueno aqui va.


Acércate, que a lo mejor
