The fluidity of the water and the strength of femininity form the symbolic roots of Aua Lila, artistic name of the Ecuadorian singer-songwriter, who is preparing for the release of Vacío del alma, the third promotional single of her solo career so far this year.
Her love for music came at an early age in her family. With her father Pablo, on bass and her older sister Carolina, on the piano, Aua Lila formed her first band, in which she enjoyed making covers of some popular rock, pop and jazz songs, while singing and playing the guitar. “George Harrison is my favorite Beatle”, says about the artist and band that has accompanied him as a reference since its inception.
The taste for musical interpretation grew during her time in the classical school band, with which she participated in her first massive events, in which she experienced the emotion that occurs in the connection of the artist with the audience. “At that time I knew that music was the way I wanted to go,” says the artist, who finished her studies in Musical Arts a year and a half ago at the University of the Americas.
For Aua Lila, the history, form and content of traditional Ecuadorian rhythms, especially from the Andes, was a discovery during her university years. The sound bases of rhythms such as albazo, san juanito or corridor and the possibility of merging them with pop and electronic beats served to define the musical concept of his project as a singer-songwriter.
For the artist, the alliance with the producer Renato Arias meant the beginning of a musical production with professional quality. In May of this year, she debuted on the local music scene with the first single titled Semilla. An Andean pop song, in which she shares her vision about the lack of self-love and the path to self-improvement.
The next track on the air was Lucero about an emotional fracture of melancholic environments and the search for hope
Next Friday (October 26, 2018) will be the release of the third single, which exposes the discomforts of toxic relationships, as a way out of the crisis. The theme will be released on digital platforms such as Spotify, Deezer, Apple and Claro Music, among others.
Each song comes accompanied by music videos that are published on the Aua Lila channel on Youtube. For the artist, this first stage of her career has meant a rediscovery of the country’s musical roots, which she seeks to revitalize with the mix of modern sounds. (I)
