¡Otra miércoles, otra canción! (I saved the comments for below the video this week, for those of you who want to plough right in and read — or not — about it later.)
Okay, for those of you who already do speak/understand at least some Spanish, perhaps I should have warned you: tear-jerker!. (For those who don’t, “La vida después de ti” translates to “Life after you”. Yeah, it’s definitely a dry-your-eyes-afterwards kind of song.)
However, musically, the song is so beautiful that I had to share it anyway. The lyrics are beautiful, too — just beautiful in a very sad way. Also, it has been helping me learn some pronunciation, since I’m so addicted to it that I listen to it 3-4 times per day.
My first encounter with Sra. Cantú was several months ago, before I first shared her hit, “Suerte” with you. Indeed, when I first stumbled across “La Vida…”, it was in searching for more Paty Cantú tunes. It was quite by accident that I learned that she had first recorded this number with partner Mario Sandoval as a part of the duo Lu back in 2006.
Paty also performs the song live and solo and does a marvellous job. Still, I always enjoy hearing heterogeneous voices blended to bring rich harmonies and pleasing textural combinations, as I’m sure I’ve mentioned before. If, however, you’d like to experience Paty’s concert performance, it can be found at https://youtu.be/fpnCq1m2m5k.
As always, I welcome your thoughts on this music, or comments on any other topic discussed here. And I apologize for not posting more about my training experiences. I have been in review mode for a while now and haven’t had that much exciting progress to share, I’m afraid. (Trust me — I’m quite disappointed in me, too!)
¡Bueno, hasta luego, amigas!
