The Spanish singer Rosalía offered this Monday the first of her two concerts at Webster Hall in New York, where she arrives after participating in the Billboard Awards in Las Vegas and graduating from the Coachella music festival.
Amid exhilarating shouts and applause, Rosalía, who has become a phenomenon since her debut in 2017, was greeted by New Yorkers who crowded the newly opened entertainment hall in the East Village in Manhattan, after being remodeled, with capacity for 1,400 people.
“Pienso en tu mirá” was the first theme of the concert, which last one hour, during which the audience accompanied him singing each of his songs, that didn’t cease to surprise the artist.
Her followers raised their hands to the rhythm of the music, moved their bodies and captured the image of the interpreter with their mobiles.
The audience began to arrive two hours before their presentation and at the time of getting on stage, it was difficult to walk among the crowd, who stood patiently waiting for the singer, winner of two Latin Grammys last year.
Interpretation of “Barefoot in the Park”
After her performance of “Barefoot in the Park” the Catalan looked at her audience, she threw kisses as she put her hand on her heart, and assured them: “I am so surprised… Happy to be here with you”, getting in response a thunderous applause from his fans, mostly Latin public.
Rosalía, who wore an intense blue leather trouser and a printed blouse and white platform slippers, did not disappoint: she sang and danced in a great spectacle in which she was accompanied by six dancers, all dressed in white.
She showed why in such a short time has become a favorite of the public, who tonight went crazy with her fusion of flamenco, pop and urban music, as with her sensual movements in the most “aflamencados” rhythms.
Tour of the USA
The Catalan woman of 25-year-old has hung the “sold” poster to all her concerts in this short tour in the U.S., Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York, to present her new album “El mal querer”, which came out in the 2018. In New York it was a matter of hours, forcing a second function.
“Antes de morirme”, which she sang a cappella, “Te estoy amando locamente”, “Di mi nombre”, “Brillo” or “Bagdad”l, for which she placed a red veil covering her face, were other themes that sounded tonight in the hall, in which it was also heard the “olé”, “guapa” or “te amo Rosalía”.
“Mucho, mucho amor” said also the artist to her captive audience and her best accomplice during the night, in which the singer was passion and pure energy.
End of the concert with “Malamente”
“Malamente” was the song chosen to conclude her presentation, but the public did not move from his site. They wanted more from Rosalía. “Another one, another one!”, the people shouted in unison, forcing a smiling and grateful singer to return to the stage, this time, to interpret “Volver” a cappella, the tango that made famous Carlos Gardel.
Total euphoria, if it was possible at this stage of the show in which New Yorkers surrendered to the singer, who will finish this tour in Canada.
“The show was all I expected of her,” said Victoria Leandra to EFE, who didn’t stop screaming and singing all night long and who said she follows Rosalía “from the beginning” of her career.
The young admirer said that she follows Rosalía “because she’s different, she has rhythms of flamenco with the modern and is what nobody is doing”. (2019 April 30, EFE/Practica Español)
