01 Jul “LA LUZ DE AURORA”, the fourth track of Jerónimo Maya´s latest album with Solera Flamenca RECORDS
“LA LUZ DE AURORA” is a beautiful fandango from Huelva which the artist wanted to dedicate to his mother, Aurora Maya. In this composition, where complexity is disguised as simplicity, we find quite a straightforward melody, capable of entering our very consciousness and making us spend all day humming this song.
A fandango full of nuances, with a wide harmonic variety, recovering the lost essence, and masterfully combining falsettas with the typical rhythm of this genre. As a result, it takes all of us to the very core of this beautiful Andalusian city, hometown of fandango
As on previous occasions, 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.
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.
