Forklift Danceworks

Yesterday I had a dream-like experience at the Bartholomew Pool called “My Park, My Pool, My City“, here in Austin, Tx. I’ve heard about the outstanding/unusual pieces by Forklift Danceworks but unfortunately, I’ve never seen it in action until yesterday. MIND BLOWN!

They choreograph, integrate, and create an experience that gave me chills, and made me shear a tear or two; the way they expose the everyday art, the common hero, it’s so simple and gorgeous!

Music by our local genius, Graham Reynolds, choreography by Allison Orr & Krissie Marty, performances by the staff at Austin’s Parks & Recreation (PARD)/ Aquatics Program and the community.

Let this fun piece connect you to your community, inner child and humanity in general, your soul would truly appreciate it!

There are a few tickets left here, make sure you get them!

JuanGa <3

I didn’t say anything when JuanGa passed away; there was enough people talking about it either way (Even Obama tweeted!)… But, when I heard the idea about doing a tribute in his honor, I thought that was the perfect way for me to contribute and express what we as Mexicans and music lovers feel about it/his passing 😦 So, this September the 30th we’re doing a Tribute to JuanGa and I just wanted to invite you guys to enjoy one of the best Mexican gifts to the world, Juan Gabriel’s music (or as I call him for reference, the Mexican Elton John haha).

Sept 30th 9PM at El Sol y la Luna, Austin Tx. Here is the event on FB in case you want more info 😉 Happy last week of September :O

Todo esta bien… “Everything is OK”

austin tx, entrepeneur, latin america, music, reviews, texas

My good friend Mauro Muñoz recently released his new single“Todo Está Bien” (Everything is OK) I heard it, loved it and of course I had to write about it. Personally, this song is certainly relevant and uplifting right now. In his words, “Todo esta bien” is a song about how you cannot control your surroundings, only the way they affect you plus, deciding that if you think something is going wrong or bad, you have the power to transform it into something good or “OK”. Right on the spot, don’t you think?! This collaboration is one of many that he has done with Alan Saucedo (this one adding Cecy Leos as well). The single is the first one of an album to come and you can find it at Spotify, Google Play, Apple Music, iTunes, Deezer, etc.

Let me give you a back story about this amazing composer; Mauro is from my hometown Monterrey, he has been living in Mexico City for over 4 years now, and this change has been great on his work (and his fans since he’s working more than ever!). He has been on the industry as a composer for many years, if you’re into Latin music, odds are you’ve listened to his work before in every genre possible, some examples of who’s used his songs are: Emilio Navaira, Bobby Pulido, Tatiana, Lemongrass, Sasha Benny y Erik, Tren A Marte, La Firma, Samo, among others.

I heard on an interview that he was almost forced into performing some of his compositions because there were songs so personal that he wouldn’t be comfortable delivering or hearing them from someone else; I have to say if you put attention, you can understand this because of how intimate and deep they are. He can be poetic both with his lyrics and music layering, which makes it sooo good for us the listeners.

Whenever he’s working on his own project he’ll work on everything from start to end; writing, playing  every instrument, etc. Genres are not important for Mauro Muñoz, he’s in it to win it no matter the shape or form a song gets in the process. Growing up he had all kinds of musical influences from his parents, from Led Zeppelin to Joaquin Sabina, & everything in between.

Hope you have some time to listen to his project, here are his social media links for you to start enjoying and preparing for his next tour in Texas, we’re already working on it! 😉 TwitterInstagram, Facebook & Soundcloud

Have a lovely rest of your week!!!
