“LA ALEGRÍA DE MI MARÍA”, second track of Jerónimo Maya´s latest album with Solera Flamenca RECORDS

It has been already two weeks since the first track in Jerónimo´s latest album was released: “PUREZA Y SOLERA”, and we know you are looking forward to listening to the second, as you have told us time and again, through the Internet in general, and YouTube in particular. Well, no more waiting: Here you are, “LA ALEGRÍA DE MI MARÍA”, the second track of Jerónimo Maya´s latest album, produced by Solera Flamenca RECORDS.

These beautiful alegrías are a breath of fresh air, deeply impregnated with this positive energy which inexplicably captures you from the very first moment, making you feel, literally, the magic of music. These alegrías are played with a very special tuning, which reminds us of these sounds from India which have influenced Jerónimo´s career so deeply. In these alegrías we will also find a very personal version of a falseta from “La Barrosa” by Paco de Lucía, as Jerónimo wanted to add it as a tribute to the maestro.

As on the previous occasion, this song is accompanied by Juan Mateo for the knucle-tapping, a real genius of the rhythm, who managed to cover this masterpiece with the “complex simplicity” coat which only a maestro like him could provide.

As we have been announcing for the last few weeks, we have started a brand new project: Solera Flamenca RECORDS (READ NEWS). A project for which we would very much like to have a big premiere, with the production of an album by Jerónimo Maya.

This new album means turning back to the purest essence, back to basics, where we will enjoy the guitar of this genius, with the only percussion of knuckles. An album where the maestro´s musical truth and greatness is exposed, bare, without any accessories or musical arrangements whatsoever.

Each of the nine tunes composing this new album will be recorded in audiovisual format, and will be uploaded onto our web and YouTube channel every two weeks.

Once all the tunes are presented, the physical album (“CD”) will be released in audiovisual format, and these tunes will be presented in Barcelona, on December 2022, within the frame of the “De Cajón” Festival, organized by the firm “THE PROJECT”, a show which will count on the participation of great artists, such as Juan Mateo (percussion and knuckle-tapping), Pepe de Pura (singing and clapping), and the special collaboration of a guest artist: Karime Amaya (dancing).

“PUREZA Y SOLERA” is an unprecedented fresh musical proposal in which we find a highly influential Jerónimo, musically speaking. He is, at the same time, amusing and fun, but also harmonically complex and technically superb, as expected from him.

There is no doubt Jerónimo has reached something else by composing “PUREZA Y SOLERA”: musical maturity, that degree of knowledge, expression and communicative skill which all allow him to directly connect with the heart and soul of his audience.
