A place in which, not only their eyes are set on you but also energy, dreams and sensations come together. (Main auditorium)
I often always imagine, even though I am still composing, how it will sound my music when I take it to a direct live concert that is where I like to experience it. I daydream and I make a guess how I will feel, how the public will receive it, and how the spectacle will take place. I believe that nobody escapes the temptation of trying to discover in our mind, as sighted clairvoyant, the so hoped-for future.
Thinking about it, we arrived to the Glaswegian city, in Scotland, where we present our project Beti Bizi in the prestigious Celtic music festival Celtic Connections.
Since 1993, Glasgow welcomes one of the most important worldwide festivities of Celtic music. This year, it began January 13 till the 30of this same month will close its doors, completing 18 days in which 1,500 artists will more of take part in the 300 concerts, events, talks etc… distributed in 14 stages throughout the whole city. Imagine yourselves for a moment the musical, cultural and personal explosion that all this supposes. The same day, there are a lot of concerts disseminated through the city and as a sequel to each day are the night-time jam sessions in the hotel of the festivity, where all artists that have taken part in the different events of the day meet and offer small live performance but in a intimate way, contributing still more that if it is so possible, to an amazing environment there in which one breathes.
The day of our performance arrived and everything worked wonderfully. We played in the main conference hall of the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall and the truth is that the concert was awesome. We all have a good time as never before. The band Leioa Kantika Korala and myself lived unforgettable moments. It was all as shocking as I had imagined it while we recorded Beti Bizi in the studio, as much, that I am looking forward to feel it again and to discover once more, that if it is intense to live it in first person, more is it to share with them and with you…..
