Lorena Álvarez and the Coral Bistuer

Experience MACBA
in progress
Lorena Àlvarez i la Coral Bistuer

Lorena Álvarez returns to the use of choral singing in the tradition of popular music with a choir of amateur singers without prior experience. She shares the emotion of singing and the collective purging of individual states of mind, this time accompanied by the Coral Bistuer.

She compensates for the feeling of unease that comes through in some of her new songs with her usual northern charm. Songs like ‘Maldigo del alto cielo’ by Violeta Parra and ‘Quise dormir y no podía’ by Carmen Amaya are examples of inspiring precedents. The power comes from the stories that unfold before us through a primordial imaginary (escape, the fall, the storm…) that is revived in every strum of the guitar, every chorus, and every note of a jumping lute that does as it pleases.
