[Spanish] Carla Morrison – No Viniste (Natalia Lafourcade Cover)


I just discovered the soft and soothing voice of upcoming Mexican singier/songwriter Carla Morrison on one of my favorite spanish-focused (but not limited) music blog Club Fonograma.

They describe Carla Morrison as a “young talented lady from Tecate Baja California, a fresh face with a remarkable and comforting voice who’s quietly making her way into the realm of Mexican pop. She’s the owner of a heart-trenching vocal instrument, which she radiantly displays through beautiful intimate songs.”

The song below is a beautiful cover of friend and popular Mexican pop-rock singer, Natalia Lafourcade.

OMFG l33t GUITAR SKILLZ! err.. I mean.. Meet Rodrigo Y Gabriela

I know guys, I am late… If Mexican musical duo Rodrigo y Gabriela is new to you, join the club! As a late Music Ninja bloomer, I was unfortunate to not have discovered them earlier. Yes I am ashamed but its better late than never. Their extremly fast rhythmic classical guitars has become a new addiction to me.

Rodrigo y Gabriela will be releasing a new album “11:11” next month (September 7, 2009) It will guest star Strunz & Farah on the song “Master Maqui” and guest star Alex Skolnick on the song “Atman.”

New Spanish Category debuts with the Amazing Zoé

I am happy to announce that I will be opening up a new Spanish category on The Music Ninja (on the big red menubar you see up there ^^). I am discovering and rediscovering Spanish bands that due to my lack of initiative to listen to Spanish music in the past, was not aware of them. With that said, I present you an already popular alternative/psychedelic group from Mexico that goes by the name of Zoé. Although not very well known in the US, Zoé has been dominating in Latin America since the late 90s.

Their forth LP titled “Reptilectric” was released November of last year and opened at number one in the Mexican charts. They are mostly considered an alternative rock band that with their fearless pursuit of experimentation with their music, makes them come across as experimental and psychedelic. No two songs are alike and yet each song is executed with such bliss, incorporating a spectrum of music elements that reflect their ingenuity just as much as give light to why these guys are making so much noise in the Spanish genre. I loved their entire album from their heartfelt, mellow melodic song “Luna”, to their songs with heavier Spanish guitar influences like “Poli” to their single with a very trippy video “Reptilectric”. I am a little embarrassed that I just now came across these guy but its better late than never.
