AL DIA conversó en Barcelona con Guaco, la famosa banda venezolana, ganadora de un Grammy Latino 2016. Guaco empezó en los años 60 como un conjunto tradicional de gaitas, un ritmo tropical tradicional de Navidad, hasta convertirse en una de las bandas de fusión tropical más conocidas del país latinoamericano.

Melodic Contrasts

Adele vs. Beyoncé. Traditional vs Experimental. Unifier vs. Controversial.

The two famous Pop divas hold most of the nominations for the 2017 Grammy awards, despite their apparently opposite styles.

Adele's success is based on her appealing traditionalism. Her music acts as a unifier, making songs for kids and grandparents, pop obsessives and pop skeptics", reports The Atlantic. 

Beyoncé by contrast has lately been on a politically charged experimental kick, riling up what’s left of the American monoculture via racially conscious performances at the Super Bowl.

At least 33 people were killed in a deadly fire that started during a ‘secret’ concert in the East Oakland warehouse (California), last Friday.

The 10,000 –square-foot building , known locally as the Oakland Ghost Ship, an artists collective, was full with old furniture and religious statues, musical instruments, velvet cushions, hanging lamps and spiritual tchotchkes.

[OP-ED]: Is this “The Wall” Mr. Trump is talking about?

 10/25/2016 - 16:16

Call it “The Impossible Wall.” 

We saw it with our own eyes this past weekend, and it was hard to believe.

“The Wall,” in our mind, is the one we see occasionally on TV, or, more frequently, the one built in the popular imagination by politicians who keep talking about it. But this imaginary wall has nothing to do with the real one you see once you get there and touch it with your own hands.

Camila se separan de la elipse en su inconformista gira mundial

 10/01/2016 - 16:38

El pop rock duo Camila, compuesta de Mario Domm y Pablo Hurtado, cierran su gira mundial del disco “Elypse” con cincuenta conciertos en Los Estados Unidos (y, si, hasta uno en Filadelfia), un récord histórico para ellos. Aunque el grupo ha tenido sus trampas, el éxito de su gira es evidencia de que a veces, saliendo de la elipse o la norma es el mejor riesgo que puede tomar.

Camila detaches themselves from the ellipse in their nonconformist global tour

 10/01/2016 - 16:35

The pop rock duo Camila, comprised of Mario Domm and Pablo Hurtado, close their “Elypse” album global tour with fifty concerts in The United States (and, yes, even one in Philadelphia), a historic record for them. Although the group has had its pitfalls, the success of their tour is evidence that, at times, leaving the ellipse or the norm is the best risk you can take.
