alCANTARaMANUEL

“alCANTARaMANUEL” was born from my love of poet Manuel Alcántara’s work; from my consummate connection with the lyricism and intimacy of his poems, and from my desire to reproduce, uniquely and respectfully, the words I believed Manuel would sing if he were to narrate his reflections through song rather than words.

 

From his collection, I chose the poems that moved me the most; and I put all my languages of feeling, all my freedom and my absence of prejudice at the service of his beautiful work, to coax each one into the world of sound in a way that I felt was natural. Each of them was born and raised in different musical climates, just as they should be; because no one wants to talk about love and war while contemplating the same landscape.

 

And so I discovered an Argentine tango hidden in the heartbreaking poem that Alcántara wrote to Manuel Altolaguirre, whom he greatly admired; and in his Paloma de Picasso, a cantiña with all the salty flavour of the sea near his much-loved Málaga.
