San Juan.- Puerto Rican singer Kany García presents her new album, “Mesa Para Dos” on Saturday in a live virtual concert, an alternative in times of pandemic that she announces accompanied by spectacular scenery and that will feature guests such as Tommy Torres and Pedro Capó, among others .
The singer-songwriter said this Friday in an interview with Efe that, despite being a virtual concert – live -, those who connect at 21:00 local time in Puerto Rico (01:00 GMT) through www.livepassplay.com will not be disappointed , since she and her team have put all their efforts into this project, which, for the moment, is the alternative until the live performance returns.
“People will notice the effort, because the scenery is spectacular. No austerity, the concert will surprise, “said the singer, who will perform tomorrow at the Coca Cola Music Hall in San Juan, accessible through Live Pass Play.
Regarding the concert venue, still not released live, he said that it is a venue for between 7,000 and 8,000 spectators who this time will have to follow their idol, Kany García, from their homes.
A challenge to organize a concert of this nature
García said that, without a doubt, it is a challenge to organize an event of this category in a virtual way, but that it responds to a thoughtful decision given the circumstances that we have to live with a pandemic by COVID-19, which is now hitting with special virulence to the American continent.
Regarding the reluctance that her followers may have to pay for a virtual concert, the singer explained that prices, according to the country, have been set very affordable for anyone’s pocket, since they will range between 7 and 10 dollars.
“In addition, the concert can be followed by several people at home,” said the artist about the challenge of changing the mindset of people, unaccustomed to paying for what comes through the internet.
“This concert is a step forward,” he emphasized, after pointing out that it exceeds previous models of presentations without montages and only with guitar.
The interpreter stressed that this concert will also serve to launch the dynamics of the team that surrounds it, made up of musicians, producers and assistants, a human group that has also been affected by the inactivity of COVID-19.
The artist will perform 16 songs during the concert in about an hour and a half, which, as she acknowledged, has been difficult for her to choose since the concert will be seen all over the world, so the tastes are not the same, nor have the themes been the same way.
“There is a different view of the repertoire as it is a global concert,” said the singer-songwriter, who claimed to feel the weight of a performance of this nature in which it is not aimed at the public of a specific country, which, for example, will do more The space between song and song that artists take advantage of to interact with their followers is complicated.
PEDRO CAPÓ, TOMMY TORRES AND CARLOS VIVES ACCOMPANY HER
The singer announced that the concert will have the participation – virtual, recorded – of Puerto Ricans Pedro Capó and Tommy Torres, in addition to Colombians Carlos Vives and Camilo, and Brazilian Gusttavo Lima.
These singers joined García in his new album “Mesa Para Dos”, which was released on May 28 during the confinement in Puerto Rico and much of the world because of COVID-19.
“Mesa Para Dos” debuted at number 1 on the Billboard Current Latin Pop Albums chart one day after its release, since then it remains in the top ten.
In addition, it reached the number 1 position in iTunes in several countries in Latin America.
The single “Lo Que En Ti Veo” surpassed more than 3 million views on YouTube and debuted on the Latin Airplay list in the Top 40.
Garcia said she is honored by the success of her latest job, born at a difficult time for everyone that has been valued by her followers around the world.
Those difficulties assure that they have affected him, like everyone else, and make him feel “somewhat desperate” because of the situation of confinement, which returns, again, to Miami, where he usually resides.
Tomorrow, although in a virtual way, the singer returns to her audience and, although she admits feeling “strange” due to the lack of live followers, she ensures that everything is ready for everyone to have a good time in these uncertain times.
