Acclaimed in Spain and in Latin America from the moment they launched their first album in 2000, Spanish group El Canto del Loco (ECDL) will now conquer hearts in the United States with their soon to be released album Radio La Colifata presenta: El Canto del Loco.

And from that new musical production, the first single, Un millón de cicatrices, hits radio stations in this country today, January 12.

The members in this rock and pop band, whose origins go back to the mid-1990s, are Dani Martín (vocals), David Otero (guitar, chorus) and Chema Ruiz (bass).

Un millón de cicatrices is one of 20 songs that make up this album (recorded in Argentina), which features brand new versions of El Canto del Loco’s greatest hits. There is also a new song, Quiero aprender de ti, as well as duets with some of the greatest names in Spanish music today, including Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, Natalia Lafourcade and Alejandro Sanz, among others.

Also included: a DVD with some 19 new videos for the songs, accompanied by commentary by the residents of Buenos Aires’ Hospital Neurosiquiátrico José Tiburcio Borda, and a documentary about Radio La Colifata, the hospital’s radio station.

In Spain, Radio La Colifata presenta: El Canto del Loco came out last November, and it has already received platinum status in sales. Now, with a song such as Un millón de cicatrices, the reception in the United States promises to be the same

The DVD for Radio La Colifata presenta: El Canto del Loco marks one of the most important and special moments in the band’s career due to the participation of the members of Radio La Colifata. This collaborative work between El Canto del Loco and La Colifata is what makes the album a unique project. And in the DVD, the people of Radio La Colifata participate in a movie, a documentary and the 19 new videos shot in Argentina by El Canto del Loco.

New Camila Single Released!

Starting in 2006, everything changed for Mexican rock pop group Camila.

Three years have gone by since the members of Camilia came together as a group in the music industry, and the results could have not been better. A first album came out that was a joy for everyone, achieving great success on radio, and being embraced by audiences not only in Mexico but in Latin America and in Spain as well.

Close to a million copies of that album, “TODO CAMBIÓ”, were sold internationally, and several awards and nominations proved that the results were highly rewarding and that a dream had come true.

Today, November 16, one of the most important groups in Latin America’s music scene will be back with a second album.

The song MIENTES, written by Mario Domm and by Mónica Vélez, has been chosen as the album’s first single by this group made up by Mario Domm, Samo and Pablo.

With this song, Camila leaves no doubt that they are back with their very unique style and an even richer sound. Strong lyrics and an intense melody showcase Camila’s talent and style, with which they plan on conquering audiences’ hearts once more.

Camila is currently finishing the new album, scheduled for release on February 9, 2010.

CAMILA ESTRENA SU NUEVO SENCILLO “MIENTES”

Posted in Pop, Rock with tags , on November 12, 2009 by smlpress

El nuevo sencillo de CAMILA
Estreno 16 de Noviembre !!!

Tú, llegaste a mi vida para enseñarme
Tú, supiste encenderme y luego apagarme
Tú, te hiciste indispensable para mí

Y, con los ojos cerrados te seguí
Si yo busqué dolor lo conseguí
No eres la persona que pensé
Que creí
Que pedí

Mientes,
Me haces daño y luego te arrepientes
Ya no tiene caso que lo intentes
No me quedan ganas de sentir…

Marc Anthony was honored with a special award

Alexis & Fido, La Quinta Estación, Da’Zoo and Playa Limbo
stood out from a star-studded night on the Univisión awards show!

Kany García appeared as a presenter showing her new look.

For its sixth consecutive year, the Univisión TV network’s Premios Juventud awards show dazzled and razzled audiences with some of the hottest acts in the Latin music industry today. And no doubt, among the evening’s most memorable performances, were those by Sony artists.

The show had a special moment when Marc Anthony received an award in recognition of his talents as a singer, songwriter, actor and producer. The award for “Icon of the World” was handed to him by Olga Tanon.

Alexis & Fido, Da’Zoo and Playa Limbo captured the hearts of the audience congregated at the University of Miami’s Bank United Center in Coral Gables and had everyone dancing. The show, which aired live on Thursday, July 16, celebrated some of the hottest names in music, film, sports, fashion and pop culture.

– Puerto Rican Urban music stars Alexis & Fido (Raúl Alexis Ortiz and Joel Martínez) got things going with their latest hit Ojos que no ven, an irresistible dance and rap track from their fourth and newest album, Down to Earth.

– Spanish pop sensation La Quinta Estación (vocalist Natalia Jiménez and guitar player Ángel Reyero), and Latin music icon Marc Anthony electrified everyone with their rendition of the song Recuérdame, from La Quinta’s latest CD, Sin Frenos. An impeccably dressed (as usual), sexy and radiant Natalia, and an emotive Marc, in perfect tune with Natalia, showed their true mastery of the stage with every note and move.

– Da’Zoo, a Puerto Rican quartet of rising stars and eclectic sounds – Charly Rodríguez “Charly Zo”, Freddie Lugo “Yo-Fred”, Raúl Quezada “Raggi” and Elizabeth Fuentes “Eli-Joe” – wowed music fans hungry for something different with the song Chitu, which has acquired quite a following thanks to its animated videoclip.

– On the blue carpet, before the show started, Mexican quartet Playa Limbo had the fans dancing with the tune Un gancho al corazón, theme of the soap opera of the same name.

– And Puerto Rican singer and songwriter Kany García presented an award and showed off her fresh new look!
