Fadia Mosri Offers Preview of Solo Album Tomorrow Night at NAMM
"I will be performing eight songs from the album," she tells me. "I'm going to open the show with "Esclavo y Amo" and close with it too." Mosri's version on the classic written by Mexican songwriter José Vaca and famously interpreted by Javier Solis will be a distinct take. As a lead single to an album promising to offer a variety of rhythms including everything from Latin to classic rock, alternative to bossa nova, "Esclavo y Amo" perfectly embodies that spirit. Mosri originally imagined rumba flamenca-rock, but the end result was much more layered.
Born in Sonora, Mexico to an ethnic Lebanese background, the musician's song ended up incorporating more elements including reggaeton and an Arabic-influenced intro. "The idea to put a Mediterranean feel with the sitara came from my producer Miguel "Bife" Provenzano," she says describing the whole arrangement as an adventure.
What she decides to do from then? You'll just have to wait for the premiere of the video to find out! In the meantime, the single is available on the singer's website.
Fadia Mosri performs with Homero Chavez at the Sheraton Park Hotel Stage at NAMM. 1855 S. Harbor Blvd., Anaheim. (714) 750-1811 Fri. 11:30. Free.
