Álvaro Lafuente grew up in Barcelona, the same city where he has finished a song inspired by the nocturnal and rogue magic that invades its streets. The ghosts that conquer the nights of the Raval or El Paralelo mingle to vanish in their shadows with the first light of dawn. This is ‘Romancera’.
The song, produced by Raül Refree, is a chronicle of a fetish city, a term invented by Guitarricadelafuente himself to describe the enchantment of its streets and the gypsies of the rumba.
“It was very inspiring for me and many of the songs I wrote for my first album were born here. Romancera’ is for me an ode to the city I have known over the years and a kind of story of a place that is covered in mystery and magic at night,” says Álvaro.
The song comes to culminate the musician’s international success after being nominated for a Latin Grammy and having conquered the United States and Latin America. Now, he announces a new concert at Poble Espanyol on 19 July. If you haven’t seen him live yet… What are you waiting for?
