Lissette Alvarez presents her new albumMay 16th, 2012 - 12:37 pm ICT by IANS
Miami, May 16 (IANS/EFE) Lissette Alvarez has presented in the US her 50th album “Soles” (Suns).
“I performed that song many years ago but I never recorded it - it’s a number like an anthem with a mantra that goes ‘though we don’t see it, the sun is always there’,” the Cuban artist told EFE.
The new album is dominated by romantic ballads with “organic arrangements that can last through time - strings, piano, guitar and songs all about love”, Alvarez said.
The singer-songwriter said she was very eager to debut “Soles” because she went several years without recording a disc of her own and this album was in production for 2 1/2 years.
“I’m very excited, I hope all the people who like my music enjoy it and that those who are unacquainted with it also enjoy it so they stay with me,” said the artist, who has 12 gold records to her credit.
In June, the singer will give a concert in San Juan, Puerto Rico, where she will promote “Soles” and in the not-too-distant future she would love to promote the disc around Central and South America in countries like Peru, Venezuela and Argentina.
Besides promoting her disc, Alvarez, who is married to fellow musician Willy Chirino, has plans “for television, concerts and theater. We’re in talks for doing theater and television in different countries”.
