MADRID, September 22 (EFE).- In a music market as heterogeneous as the Spanish, Madrid showed tonight with its Aitana-mania that there is a huge space to welcome national figures in Anglo-Saxon lines. Divas that are proudly feminine and strong on pop power.

Call it the cry of excitement that the young Catalan ripped from the thousands of women, teenagers and girls (and the occasional man) gathered at the Wizinc Center tonight, more than 15,000 according to the organization, in his third attack on the venue in less than a year (the second in a week). And like previous shows, with a “NO TICKETS LEFT” sign.

“This is the last concert! I’m so sorry because it’s been a wonderful few months. What an illusion to end it here in Madrid, which I also feel like my home!”, the artist said before the reception he received at the end of this “tour” of Spain that Latin America is going to move on its upward path. .

Aitana Okana (Barcelona, ​​1999) left «OT 2017» as runner-up and thus once again reiterated the unwritten law that this is the best position to succeed in this industry. At 23 and with two albums on the market, she’s one of the most important women in the national music industry today, turning almost everything she touches gold (or platinum).

Aitana is pure current and this tour of “11 Reasons More” is proof of that as a supposed addendum to the “tour” that ended last December and it again proved its justification, with almost all seats sold out on the main stages of the country. Exist in a repository that only grows.

In fact, of the nearly twenty cuts it has made, at least a third have seen the light in the past year (the most recent, «again», this Thursday). Many of them would be previews for his third studio album, and a few more emerged as a result of his good ear and his confidence in collaborating with other colleagues as a motor for mutual growth.

This is one factor that may explain the enthusiasm for the young Catalan diva in Madrid, along with the sincerity and charisma that is a trademark of the house, but there is also something else, such as a gesture of respect for her audience that meant her concert started exactly at the scheduled time, 9:30. p.m.

It did this with an admirable role in the crackle of the spotlight and some irresistible projections that covered Aitana with the glow of a great star, something that also contributed to a stage production larger than the style of national artists, with a light display for which they called all their performances “resilient”. “It’s cut like that.

Very talkative between songs and songs (perhaps too much for a good concert rhythm), she did not stop commenting on anecdotes and acting as a good hostess for her guests: Sebastian Yatra (with whom she sang “Las Doubts” and Corazon sin vida »), Marni (“Your ID Photo”), Ptazeta (“You Want”) and, almost at the end, a grand finale with Zzoilo (“Mon Amour”).

For the beginning of the evening he chose “Formentera” and he did it under the shelter of a band of five musicians, an attempt to claim the time of canned music, if only for the economic effort for some professionals who suffered a lot during the pandemic break.

In the same line, Aitana is standing holding a microphone without sound make-up for her voice. Just like he was known for on “Operation Triunfo,” he comes out and sings to make you fall in love with his colorful timbre, especially on slower tracks like “Lips With Honey.”

It is true that his choreographic difficulties are becoming apparent, but this makes him a strength when used with integrity. “Thanks to all my dancers for helping me find movements that I feel comfortable with,” she said toward the end of the concert, recalling the accident she suffered on an ankle.

That desire to improve is evident again when he admits to his difficulty playing the piano in front of an audience, and despite that, he sits down at the keyboard to weave an acoustic opening for “Berlin.”

Also, in the choreographed kiss of this theme, he clarifies his interest in making sexual diversity visible, while with “Ni una mas” he tries to fight against women’s discrimination, all the reasons, explaining one of his most famous themes, valid that Madrid gives him Promised loudly: “I will stay.”
