"I make music to live together, to embrace, to dance, to converse." [Interview with Leiden]

Leiden Interview

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.

"I think that there, in other places, there are many songs to be written and discovered." [Interview with Lucio Feuillet]

Lucio Feuillet Interview

We speak with Lucio Feuillet, the most contemporary of the musicians of southern Colombia. He gave us his answers, honest, heartfelt, like the music he makes.

In the 2017 Lucio Feuillet changed the rules of the production of Latin / alternative genre albums.

He released "Provinciano", a video-album, an album recorded live in block, a cohesive album from beginning to end in the era of singles releases.

Reviewed as one of the best albums of the year (and the one I personally heard the most during the past year), "Provinciano" changed the rules. He put the stick too high. He created one more problem for independent musicians - as if they did not have enough - in the best sense. How can a more impactful album be made?

The album counts with the participation of its live musicians and singer-songwriter Marta Gómez, the FatsO group, Javier Andrés Mesa (Guafa Trio), Javier Ojeda (Burning Caravan) and Jairo Paz. Recorded on the stage of Mapa Teatro, the atmosphere envelops and gives an intimate solemnity to each song.

It's a huge leap from "Indicio" (2013) his previous album; his current proposal, increasingly refined, highlights his sounds of southern Colombia. The Galeras volcano is always present in its sound, the "Rs" that sound like "CHs" and the Andean music tradition confronting contemporary pop.

It was a great pleasure for us to talk to Lucio and we hope you are fortunate enough to have purchased tickets for the official release of the album. on Friday 2 of March in theTeatro Estudio, of the Teatro Mayor Julio Mario Santo Domingo (Avenida 170 Street No. 67-51 - San José de Bavaria, Bogotá) - For sale in First Row.

In one sentence, how would you describe the music you make.

South, alternative, song and Latin America! It is a music that speaks a little of what I am, what I see and what I want to look for.

What impact does it have to be born next to a volcano?

It is a constant inspiration. We can feel the power of nature daily, the fragility of life and the strong sensitivity for our environment. Also, the volcano teaches us a lot about the value of the word "respect".

The most important thing is to have a speech behind, to move you and identify you [Interview to Adriana Convers @FatPandora]


We interviewed Adriana Convers (@FatPandora), one of the most important fashion bloggers in Colombia. We talk about almost everything important in life, of power jackets, of having feet in the ground, of empanadas and of influencer marketing.

Adriana Convers, under her pseudonym @Fatpandora, is one of the most effective names in the circles of bloggers fashion, influencers and fashion journalism in Colombia. Your name appears associated with the lists of curvy bloggers to know (El País),plus-size latinas know to understand that weight is not everything (Buzzfeed)and Colombians with more style in Instagram (Publimetro).

He found his edge with a banner he carries with pride: challenging the fashion industry to talk about style with big sizes (and makes it clear that "size L is not plus-size "). And not just talk about the marketplus-size, give it content; break the logic that mannequins are the only form of beauty and refute the idea that weight and style are not compatible. Understand that offering a bigger size does not mean designing for that user. As what he sought to do Megan Trainor with the music… but more consistent. Fat Pandora publishes its blog from 2012 and has built its digital environment in multiple platforms, mainly in Instagram.
