“Far beyond being an album, " En Meio " is the material outbreak of deep learning about the mystery of existence ... In this work I´ve assumed for the first time all that I am, and now you are holding a real piece of my totallity . The whole conception of the disc is based on the idea that what is done with truth will always be beautiful. The aim of these sounds is to awaken in the listener , a thirst to seek their inner truth every second of this life! "
Lucía Soledad Spivak
The álbum “En Meio,” entirely produced by Lucía, brings a repertoire with the eclectic coherence that has always been typical of this singer. It presents folk Latin-American rhythms with a jazz treatment, which is possible to appreciate in the composition, arrangements and extensive improvisation. All of this is the result of years of deep investigation of voice, rhythms and languages of each style presented. The concept of the album is based on the dialogue between technique and spontaneous performance, which shows the maturity of this artist.. Lucía started her music studies almost thirty years ago, creating a solid basis for her art. This whole experience made it possible for her to deconstruct and experiment beyond the predictable possibilities. As a result, we have an album that mixes styles, timbres, languages and atmospheres, enabling the listener to travel through the most diverse territories, experiences and emotions.
