VALENCIA MUSIC…‘SOLE GIMÉNEZ’ PRESENTS ‘MUJERES DE MÚSICA’ ON OCTOBER 16th IN VALENCIA

##Sole Giménez presents ‘Women of Music’ in the cycle ‘A la llum de la lluna’ in Valencia.

Sole Giménez began in the world of music as a child and, at the age of eleven, she joined a female choir where she stood out as a soloist. In 1983, when she was studying Fine Arts in Valencia, she started the adventure of ‘Presuntos Implicados’ with her brother Juan Luis. Sole was the voice and composer of some of the great successes of the group until 2006, when she began her solo career definitively after having edited the album Ojalá two years earlier. Her discography includes the works La felicidad (2008), Dos gardenias (2009), Pequeñas cosas (2010), El cielo de París (2012), Cómo hemos cambiado (2014) and Los hombres sensibles (2017).

The musical circuit ‘A la llum de la lluna’ that is celebrated in the old monastery of Sant Miquel dels Reis de València, will be presenting a concert on the 16th of October at 10:00 pm with the presence of Sole Giménez. On this occasion, the singer will present the project ‘Mujeres de música’, which is about compositions written and popularized by women of the last century.

The festival is an initiative of the Conselleria d’Educació, Cultura i Esport de la Generalitat Valenciana to encourage live music in safe environments. In addition, the Festival values the 16th century building, of which the southern cloister is an example, in order to offer cultural events in the open air. On the other hand, it is important to highlight the security measures implemented to comply with all the health protocols: obligation to wear a mask; use of hydroalcoholic gel; signalling of routes to maintain interpersonal distance; and nominative entries and assignment of seats to ensure traceability.

‘Mujeres de musica’, Soledad Giménez’s latest work, aims to reclaim the women who are going to break with tradition and prejudice and leave their mark on the world of music. Thus, they compose and sing to demonstrate their courage, freedom and emotion. However, their work has been invisible but leaves a rich sound, full of nuances and sensitivity.

Therefore, the artist established in Valencia has been the place for all of thesecompositions. Thus, the show recreates a very special universe with courage and vision. In short, Sole Giménez brings to light and gives new life to the works of these gifts. In this way, it is to give justice to the spirit of these songs and it is a homage to the composers of these songs that are well known, admired and loved by many.

The record includes Latin American composers such as the Peruvian Chabuca Granda (“La flor de la canela”); Dona Ivone Lara, the first woman to be admitted as a composer in a Brazilian samba school (“Alguém me avisou”); the Argentine Eladia Blázquez (“Corazón al sur”); the Colombian Totó la Momposina (“El pescador”); and the Mexican Natalia Lafourcade (“Hasta la raíz”). Així mateix, recovers songs by Mari Trini (“Amores”), Rosana (“El talismán”) i Rozalén (“Vivir”) and includes two themes of the singer herself (“Me equivocó” i “El último vals”).
