Artist: Ana Laan
Genre: Pop/Bossa Nova
The artist of the week comes from Spain, and is in our opinion, one of the most promising voices en the Ibeoramerican music scene. She has collaborated with important artists such as Jorge Drexler and Sergio Dalma, and has already recorded an album without much success (commercially of course). But her most recent album Chocolate and Roses, has gathered attention after been featured in iTunes single of the week, which meant that people could actually download her song Paradise for free.
Ana proposes a multicultural album in several languages, but mostly English and Spanish. Whether it is a melody, bolero, or a bossa nova, she achieves nothing less than excellence. The highlight of the album is perhaps Me echaras de menos; it really captures the essence of bilingual cultures with without becoming noisy or silly. She takes us on a truly charming voyage throughout Sweden, Spain, France and the U.S.
A truly remarkable artist that we are glad to have known thanks for the heads up Lavate las Orejas!Key Tracks: Paradise, Me Echara de Menos, Chocolate and Roses
