We interviewed Leiden, Cuban-Mexican singer-songwriter. He gave us his answers and songs.
Thes The business wheels are places with a hostile public. Filled with critics assessing the artist's live performances with skepticism. They look for something they can take to their spaces. They judge. We judge. What it does not do is an easy scenario.
In such a scenario, we met Leiden. A Cuban-Mexican singer-songwriter who took the stage of Circulart (2015) in Medellín and left us astonished.
Armed with a feathered headdress, an immense smile and a suitcase full of songs he made one of theshowcasesMost beautiful I've seen.
Heartfelt, authentic songs.
Each a trip.
Each discharge of energy, of peace, of longing. Accurate composer Fantastic interpreter. Between applause, percussion hits and an exquisite vibrato hypnotized us.
Since then he has released two more albums. "La vuelta al sol" (2016) with live versions of his first songs ("Turbio el Corazón", "Anhelé" and "When he dreamed" among others) and "The dead also leave flowers" (2017) with indispensable songs like "Lovers" . His songs explore from the bolero to the densest end of alternative pop.
Woe to us !, we sigh while we listen to his songs and we hope he will give us many more.
