Ecuadorian singer-songwriter Sara Ontaneda is always traveling between New York and Guayaquil. Her hometown remains a core element of her career, while the Capital of the World is her ticket to internationalization. In bars and artistic centers of that city, Sara sings her songs in English and Spanish from her album ‘Entre espacios y colores.’
This is his first long-play, with nine themes that speak of her migratory experience, love relationships and distance. “Aprovechar is the first single from this album. For me, it is a message of unity for the world, because there is always news of attacks or the non-acceptance of Latinos, and it´s so sad that we are all so divided. It’s a hopeful theme to take advantage of what we have,” explained the 26-year-old artist.
“I live in two worlds. I have friends who tell me that I am very American or vice versa. I feel that I always fit 50% on both sides. What like on the American side is punctuality.”
The album marks a more mature stage for the artist, who moves away from the folk of her first work and fuses pop, R & B, and Latin melodies. The electric guitar guides the rhythm of this album. (I)
