What is the soundtrack to your life?
It depends on my mood and situation. If I need to concentrate/focus/or relax movie soundtracks are perfect for me (Hans Zimmer: Gladiator & Interstellar soundtracks among my favorite). On the other hand, if I’m happy and in party mode: Salsa, Vallenato, Champeta (Local Colombian rhythms) are ideal. (Carlos Vives, Joe Arroyo, Fania AllStar among my favorite artists).
What is the most annoying song in the world?
Baby Shark – Pink Fong
What’s more important to you, music or lyrics? Why?
Music is more important to me. Regardless of the Language, I often hear songs that I enjoy from different cultures and countries. Also, I even know cases of people far from Latin America that learn Spanish only because they love the music and rhythm.
If you had the chance to interview an artist, who would it be?
My great grandfather who was an opera tenor in Spain – Miguel Fleta. He was the first Calaf in Puccini’s Turandot at La Scala (Nesun Dorma – one of my favorite songs of all time). It’s sad that there is no recording of Miguel Fleta’s performance (the last holy grail in opera).
Last concert you went to?
Soundtrack: Legend of Zelda soundtrack compilation. Party Mode: Carlos Vives
