A Review of Rosalía’s Motomami World Tour
Rosalía is a future world-renowned Spanish musical artist from Barcelona, Spain. She is best known for the way she sings Reggaeton mixing pop and urban music; but, she is also most notable for the way she incorporates her own version of Flamenco into her music.
These factors, together with her three albums “Los Ángeles”, “El Mal Querer” and “Motomami”, are what make Rosalía something different – and that’s why this last tour will be unforgettable!
Rosalía once said that “La música es un lenguaje en sí mismo, y las canciones tienen su propia alma, cada canción tiene su alma”. Which translates into English as: “Music is a language in itself, and songs have their own soul, each song has its soul.
In Rosalía’s latest album, “Motomami”, she explores this statement in multiple ways through different songs like “Saoko”, “Hentai”, and “Como Un G”. Each of these songs, although very different, all have different roles within the album.
The album and the concert as a whole gave us a new perspective on how today’s music can become a part of the social and cultural aspects of many people’s lives.
The Motomami World Tour kicked off on July 6 in Almeria, Spain and traveled to the United States on September 15. All the shows before this one were sold out and filled with fans.
The first show in Boston was no different; even though the room was small, the energy was still huge!
The first three songs in the concert were “Saoko”, “Candy”, and “Bizcochito”. These three songs gave a nice energetic opening to the concert.
Some great and exciting songs to follow were “Diablo”, “Despechá” and, to end the concert, “Sakura”.
“Diablo” was probably the most interesting song of the evening. Towards the end of the performance, Rosalía sits in a barber’s chair, cuts her braids, and throws them into the crowd. When this happened I was right next to where the braids were thrown and was about to be tackled by the crowd.
It was just one of many crazy interactions Rosalía had with the crowd all night. Whether it’s inviting people on stage to dance with her or joining the crowd to let them sing along with her during “Yo x ti, tú x mí.” This concert was full of surprises left and right.
Personally, I have attended a total of five concerts in my life, and none of them have been like this one. From flamenco to storytelling to music, it was a once in a lifetime experience.
The whole gig was like a roller coaster – you never knew where it was going to take you next, but it was full of exciting twists and turns along the way!
Overall, I think my favorite part of the concert was being able to experience Rosalía’s performance in person and being able to meet so many other people who appreciate her music as much as I do.
The tour is scheduled to end in the United States on October 22 in Miami, Florida, and then it will return to Europe where the tour will end in Paris, France.
In conclusion, both the album and the concert left lasting impressions on how I, and many others, will view music and how it will be performed. It will be interesting to see how much Rosalía will influence others in her field to change things up a bit and start performing and creating their own personal experiences at their own concerts.
