ARTIST INTERVIEW: MARISOL LA BRAVA & A FLOR DE PIEL


Interview


1. Hey, Marisol & A Flor de Piel, super nice to have the chance to chat with you. First and foremost what got you into music?


Thank you for having us. What got us to start a family band was the need to make ends meet. We started the band back in 2007 during the great recession. We were about to lose our home so we thought now was as good a time as any to start a family business. The other problem was that any new job we took on took away from family time, Bravita our youngest bandmate was only 1, and so we decided to work together because family time was very important to us.


3. I feel a lot of nostalgia for the 2000’s. What’s your favorite 00’s artist?


Marisol La Brava's favorite 00 artist is JLO, Renatonatiuh's favorite 00 artist is Cafe Tacuba. La Bravitas favorite 00 artist is Alicia Keys.


4. Can you write what was your best performance in your career? How do you remember it?


Best performance in our career was when we performed for the "Sor Juana" concert series in April of 2020. It was right at the beginning of the COVID lockdown and we were asked to stream the performance. It was scary and new for us. We had heard of streaming but up until that point we had only done live shows. We quickly taught ourselves how to stream concert quality shows. So it was amazing and exhilarating to perform but also a little sad because it was not live.


5. Who came first? The chicken or the Egg?


Marisol La Brava: Ha! The mama chicken of course!

Renatonatiuh: the egg (breakfast is before lunch or dinner)

La Bravita: Gudetama


6. What would you do if you had a time machine?


Marisol La Brava: I'd go back and tell my young self to keep writing music and singing in spite of family telling you you're not the singer of the family.

Renatonatiuh: I’d go back and go to Juan Gabriel’s concert at Bellas Artes.



7. What memorable responses have you had to your work?


Marisol La Brava: I love to speak to audience members after a show. I recall a young lady tearing up once when she saw me and said my songs inspired her. I said thank you and gave her a hug.


8. Do you think that technology is improving lives?


Marisol La Brava: I Definitely feel technology is improving our lives. I love that we have access to musicians around the world. We have collaborated with musicians/producers around the world and it's so exciting to hear their point of view.


9. Do you have a mentor or coach?


Marisol La Brava: I do not. I would love a mentor in the music industry. As a mother, educator and more mature woman in the music industry Its difficult to find women that are in similar situations as I am to at least share in experiences. It would be very lonely were it not for working with my family.


10. Do you agree with the Pigeon?

I agree to not let the Pigeon drive the bus.


Review

"Soledad Y El Mar" stands out as an exotic single inspired by and originating from the wonderfully beautiful Latin America that I had the personal pleasure of touring last year. The melodic synths smell of flowers and enchant with exquisite spirals and the female vocal performance is so sensitive and genuine that it warms my heart with its passionate lyrics about memories lost at sea and a loneliness as deep as the seabed. Not only am I enchanted by the sea as I listen to this song on the beach as I write, but I'm also enchanted by these phenomenally exquisite performances full of soul and tranquility.


The Pigeon added the new single to his Emotional Gems playlist on Spotify. You can check out the released music below. If you like what you hear, make sure to follow along so you can stay on top of future releases!
