The Magic of 2017!

3 Feb 2017

This new year has started with sensational performances in Switzerland, Germany and Sonora (Mexico)! I wanted to share this magic with you! First, I leave you with an article from the press about the performance in Alamos, Sonora, along with several pictures and videos of my experiences last month.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Human rights, feminine commitment and much soul!

Brenda Marie transmits energy with her movements and with the way to connect with her musicians. She does so with the spectators.

 

Soul is her proposal. A native of Puerto Rico, Marie visits the Festival it's thirty-third edition, and delivers her talent in El Callejón del Templo, a nocturnal and traditional scene.

 

Eloquent, passionate, Brenda proposes: "We are going to generate heat in this alley", this is the first thing that the public hears, amongst the smoke and the violet lights that highlight the silhouette and blonde hair of the Puerto Rican.

 

The performance begins, as she commented at a press conference, with covers by influential artists such as "I heard it through the grapevine" by Marvin Gaye, "Respect" by Aretha Franklin, "Rehab" by Amy Winehouse and "Mercy" by Duffy.

 

The vocalist's message tonight is simple: "Respect everyone equally".

 

"When I first heard" Respect "from Aretha Franklin, I thought" who does not want to sing that? "Also as women we have so many emotions that we want to express. I feel that music meant a lot for human rights and for rights of women, specifically that song that demanded a little respect; that's why I like this music, because it's very honest," she explained.

 

The night continues, the music flows and the audience responds positively to Brenda's insistence to get closer to the stage and dance to the rhythm of soul.

 

The repertoire includes unreleased tracks from the singer as "Two lonely souls" and "Something hot", which inject more spark and originality to the concert, since it is seen that the audience likes what they listen.

 

In the final stretch of the concert, the artist intercepts "Chain of fools" by Aretha Franklin, "Mercedes Benz" and "Piece of my heart" by Janis Joplin, women with whom she identifies.

 

In the preamble to the closing, Brenda Marie states: "If I'm going to do a cover, I want it to be where I really can express myself, where I feel I have left my clothes, suddenly I've found things from Janis Joplin, Tina Turner, That are like they fit; music either fits or it doesn't! I try to make it natural for me, that I feel comfortable singing it and that my voice lends itself to that kind of sounds. "

 

And as a final point, Marie says goodbye with this sentence: "Long live freedom, live human rights and live the respect."

 

And so, she says goodbye to the public of the Magic Town of Alamos, whom he leaves with a broad smile.

ESPAñOL:

Derechos humanos, compromiso femenino y mucho soul

 

Brenda Marie transmite energía con sus movimientos y con la manera de conectarse con sus músicos. También lo hace con los espectadores.

 

El soul es su propuesta. Oriunda de Puerto Rico, Marie visita y entrega su talento en El Callejón del Templo, escenario nocturno y tradicional por antonomasia.

 

Elocuente, entregada, Brenda propone: “Vamos a generar calor en este callejón”, es lo primero que el público alamense escucha, entre humo y luces color violeta se resaltan la silueta y la rubia cabellera de la puertorriqueña.

 

La presentación comienza, como ella comentó en rueda de prensa, con covers de artistas influyentes como “I heard it through the grapevine” de Marvin Gaye, “Respect” de Aretha Franklin, “Rehab” de Amy Winehouse y “Mercy” de Duffy.

 

El mensaje de la vocalista esta noche es sencillo: respetar a todos por igual.

 

“La primera vez que escuché “Respect” de Aretha Franklin pensé “¿quién no quiere cantar eso?”, y aparte como mujer que tenemos tantas emociones que queremos expresar, siento que esa música significó mucho para los derechos humanos y para los derechos de la mujer, en especifico esa canción que pedía un poquito de respeto, por eso me gusta esta música, porque es muy honesta”, explicó.

 

La noche continúa, la música fluye y el público responde positivamente a la insistencia de Brenda para que se acerquen más al escenario y bailen al ritmo del soul.

 

El repertorio incluye temas inéditos de la cantante como “Two lonely souls” y “Something hot”, que inyectan más chispa y originalidad al concierto, ya que se ve que a los asistentes les gusta lo que escuchan.En la recta final del concierto, la artista interpeta “Chain of fools” de Aretha Franklin, “Mercedes Benz” y “Piece of my heart” de Janis Joplin, mujeres con las que se identifica.

 

En el preámbulo del cierre, Brenda Marie expone: “Si voy a hacer un cover, quiero que sea donde yo realmente me pueda expresar, donde yo siento que me queda la ropa, de repente he encontrado cosas de Janis Joplin, de Tina Turner, que son como que te quedan, la música te queda o no te queda, yo trato de que sea algo natural para mí, que yo me sienta cómoda cantándolo y que mi voz se preste para ese tipo de sonidos”.

 

Y a manera de punto final, Marie se despida con esta sentencia: “Que viva la libertad, que vivan los derechos humanos y que viva el respeto”.Y así, se despide del público del Pueblo Mágico de Álamos, a quienes deja con una amplia sonrisa.
