About me

GENRE: Latin pop

Soy de Barcelona, vivo en Londres.

Para mi el amor tiene una fuerza infinita. Todo lo que haces, lo que quieres y deseas, tus sueños y pasiones, son un reflejo de cuánto amor pones en tu esfuerzo. Con amor todo se puede, todo se supera, no existen los límites.

Quiero que mi música te inspire a ser mejor persona, te ayude en los malos momentos, te invite a explorar lo maravilloso de la vida, ser feliz y renunciar a las emociones negativas.

La vida pasa, y sólo los momentos especiales que pasamos con alguien a quién queremos, familia y amigos, quedan en nuestro recuerdo. Lo demás es pasajero, el dinero, la fama, el éxito, no son nada si no tienes a alguien con quién compartir. Compartir es precisamente lo que nos conecta al mundo, a los demás, y da sentido a nuestra vida. Para vivir esto, no es necesario tener mucho, se puede compartir simplemente un poco de tu tiempo, un café, un paseo por el parque, una comida casera.

Artistas que me inspiran últimamente: Juan Luis Guerra, Natalia Lafourcade, Carla Morrison, and surprisingly, hip hop!

ENGLISH

I’m from Barcelona, now based in London.

For me, love has infinite power. Everything you do, what you want and desire, your dreams and passions, are a reflection of how much love you put into it. With love everything is possible, everything can be overcome, there are no limits.

I want my music to inspire you to be a better person, help you in bad times, invite you to explore the wonderful things in life, and renounce to negative emotions, to make you happy.

Life goes by, and only the special moments we spend with loved ones, family and friends, remain in our memory. The rest is useless, money, fame, success, are nothing if you do not have someone to share. Sharing is precisely what connects us to the world, to others, and gives meaning to our lives. To live this, it is not necessary to have a lot, you can simply share some of your time, a coffee, a walk in the park, a homemade meal.

Artists that inspire me: Juan Luis Guerra, Natalia Lafourcade, Bob Marley, Michael Jackson, Paco de Lucia.

  • Bad Woman EP (2010)
  • La Rumba del emigrante (2012)

ALBUM REVIEW by Carlos Quintana (About.com) 5/5

Javier Moreno’s second album is definitely a very nice work. Musically speaking, La Rumba Del Emigrante offers a refreshing sound, which is embellished by the global appeal of an album where Rumba Flamenca is adorned by different musical expression from Cuba, Mexico and Brazil.

The album is also rich in terms of the issues it touches, especially when it comes to immigration and political corruption. La Rumba Del Emigrante is both uplifting and nostalgic. Definitely, something refreshing in a world dominated by cheap, commercial music.
