Where to buy the disc:



The luck made us meet Borja in Sueca in 2013. He will accompany me on guitar in a recital. I didn’t know him and from the beginning I discovered a person with a beautiful look, a great guitarist, an artist with a great creativity. From that moment on we were seeing that our chemistry on stage was growing and we were building up a repertoire of songs that were well received by an enthusiastic and complicit audience. For a couple of years we have often commented, each time more and more strongly: we have to record this show on a disc.

In early 2020, the idea was to give recitals at the Teatre Micalet in Valencia. But in the beginning of spring the coronavirus appeared in a brutal way and, in spite of the comings and goings of the pandemic, with all that means the uncertainty of being able to celebrate or not the recitals and the negative consequences that there would be if there were again home closures, territorial closures, etc., finally we could have the dates to be able to sing in the Teatre Micalet of Valencia for a few days in a row. And little by little, also, the idea of recording a live album in that theater.

This fact would have a very important meaning for me, because I had sung a lot there. The first recital was in 1970 and then I also received an award in 2011. And going a little further, I must say that since I started to step on stages, from the Valencian Community they have never stopped asking me to go and sing. This country that always makes me feel at home whenever I go there! So that album is deeply dedicated to him.

I am very grateful to the Teatre Micalet for maintaining the proposal to go to sing despite these times of such a serious epidemic we are going through. Micalet has given us and the public that has come every day, the opportunity to confirm that CULTURE IS SAFE.

I would like to talk to you about Antonio Sánchez, who has provided his percussions and above all his magic to accompany the songs and recitals that are part of this repertoire. He has been by my side in many recitals and albums. He is an endearing and indispensable companion, a great musician with exquisite sensitivity.

From time to time, Yanire, Borja’s partner, and Sam, his little daughter, came to see us at rehearsals, at the Miguelete, at the studio… Then, joy and spring came in with their blue eyes. Thank you!

Borja, Antonio and I have put a lot of madness and passion into this album.

We hope you like it!
