ABOUT THE DISC
The album ‘She’a tribute to Latin American female composers nominated by the Latin Recording Academy in the category of Best Instrumental Album, constitutes a musical journey through seven countries in which both artists, Glenda del E and Daniela Padrón, perform in classical violin and piano format , 11 works composed by Latin women.
“This nomination is largely a tribute to and by them, the disco muses. And I think that it is also a great window that opens to the different functions that women carry out in the entertainment and music industry, whether as composers, sound engineers, producers, etc. This nomination is a recognition of many who have already been distinguished, and others who have remained anonymous,” said the young graduate of the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, the city where she arrived after moving from Cuba to Canada with her parents.
TO WANT IS TO BE ABLE
“The disc ‘She’, as a creative process, has reaffirmed to me that when you want you can, since the proposal came at a time when Daniela, the producers, the engineers and I were very tight on time due to work reasons. However, we managed to ensure that each musical piece, by taking them to the instrumental version, did not lose its essence, since, with the exception of ‘New Havana’ [tema compuesto por Glenda del E]all the others were very popular songs.”
Opening doors and inspiring thousands of Hispanic girls and young women to achieve their dreams and goals in the industry, Glenda del E encourages the public to continue supporting projects that exalt women in the music industry, just as she does as a pianist of Alejandro Sanz, whom he recently accompanied on his tours: ‘La Gira’ and ‘Sanz en Vivo’.
“Feeling the adrenaline of the public again is something indescribable after so many months of uncertainty. The pandemic was undoubtedly a life lesson and further proof that difficulties are the only ones that have the power to make us grow in skills, and prepare us as ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny. They are not signs to stop us, but teachings to continue”, said the pianist who also has a powerful message for Cuban youth.
“What we want for our personal, professional, and spiritual well-being should be the driving force behind any goal we set for ourselves. I want to tell my countrymen that everything is possible with discipline, dedication, focus and will. I feel 100% Cuban and although I went out to study from a very young age, I am always connected with my roots and with everything that happens in my country, which unfortunately has suffered from shortcomings and vicissitudes for many years, but which are getting worse and worse. My greatest wish is that Cubans on the island can also achieve their dreams and goals in an inclusive Cuba”, she concluded.
