Another new old era. The majority of mortals are raised on the “you are what you eat” proverb. Javiera Mena, however, prefers “you sing what you hear”. If our sentimental education was built with the music from prehistoric pre-streaming transistors, the Chilean artist used it to brighten up the new electro-pop creed. On Mena (2010) she unleashed the hard-hitting clubby Luz de piedra de luna, in 2014 she announced the arrival of Otra Era (Another Era) repeating those finals syllables, ra-ra-ra, and now she has released a new album, Espejo, inciting you to look Dentro De Ti (Inside You). Which is, finally, where our songs are kept within us.
Javiera Mena will bring his Espejo in concert at La (2) de Apolo in Barcelona on the 25th of October. And she will make us dance as if nobody was watching.
