Madrid/ She is 25 years old and has made history by winning two Latin Grammy with a single song, “Malamente”, the confirmation the flamenco hurricane that is Rosalia not only wins everything, but it is here to stay.
With these awards, Rosalia becomes the Spanish woman with more Latin Grammy for a one single. Niña Pastori has three different albums plus one for a project in collaboration with other artists, and Rosario and La Mala Rodriguez have two each, but also in different editions.
Studying the deepest flamenco since she was 13 years old, Rosalia Vila (San Esteban de Sasroviras, Barcelona) has revolutionized not only this genre but the entire Spanish music scene with a style that mixes traditional roots with an irreverent modernity.
She began collaborating with different artists, such as Juan Gomez ‘Chicuelo’, Rocio Marquez, C.Tangana or La Fura dels Baus before releasing her first album, “Los Ángeles” in February 2017.
A debut of traditional flamenco songs in which Rosalia investigated the recovery of sound files from very old pieces despite the fact that she already had many composed songs. But she wanted to “reinterpret the tradition”.
So, although she started with the guitar, she introduced her taste for other genres, resulting in an experimental flamenco, controversial for the most purist, and with which she proved to be part of a new generation that is not afraid of mixing.
A style criticized by many -that was also totally accepted at the time Camaron- that was conquering little by little flamenco lovers but also the youngest, who have fallen to music but also to the aesthetic of Rosalia.
Because the voice full of nuances of the singer joins a careful and groundbreaking image, especially if it is associated with something as traditional as flamenco.
Closer to the street fashion of urban rhythms, RosalIa has created a tough and powerful image with each of the videos that accompanied the themes of her albums and with each of her performances, such as the one she recently made in the delivery of the EMA MTV awards in Bilbao.
Dressed in the extravagant designs by Palomo Spain or Maria Escote, two of the most international names of the new crop of Spanish designers, the singer cares both her aesthetics and that of the dancers who accompany her in each performance.
She did it with her first album and she has continued doing it with her second and even more successful work, “El mal querer”, with which she has made a huge qualitative leap.
Previously, she had already released “Brillo”, a song in which he collaborated with Colombian reggaeton singer J.Balvin, a first foray into the international music scene that will continue with an announced collaboration with Pharrell Williams.
EL MAL QUERER
But while, RosalIa enjoys the explosion and the recognitions caused by the recent “El mal querer”, a work of which she launched in advance three “singles” that were immediately among the successes of the moment, with some very careful videos made by the producer Catalan Canada, who has worked with international artists such as Keane, Scissor Sister or Lykke Li.
A work with which the Catalan singer recovers the idea of conceptual disc with an integral project, that accompanies each subject of videoclips much more taken care of than it is habitual in the Spanish musical panorama and that they have impacted as much as the songs.
Especially the first song and her first video, “Malamente”, the only one that due to the dates limits of the Latin Grammy could enter the nominations and that was made no less than with five of which finally took two.
And if “Malamente” confirmed that Rosalia is the singer of the moment, “Pienso en tu mirá” raised her to the status of feminist icon when considered an allegation against sexist violence.
“The way I make music and the way I present myself as a woman in this industry, I believe that it is committed to the image of a woman with power and strength. Always, “the singer told EFE yesterday, upon arrival in Las Vegas to participate in the Latin Grammy gala.
She added: “This is how I feel comfortable and I think the women who inspire me are like that.” (November 16, 2018, EFE/Practica Español)
