Quique Neira New Single “LATINOAMERICA LIBRE” released Sept 2017

Single LATINOAMERICA LIBRE

“Latinoamérica libre” (“Free Latin America”)  emerges from the emergence of a new leadership in some world powers, who have the boldness to launch concepts that come to bear the dignity of Latin American peoples, as is the speech of Donald Trump. It is not an affront against Mexico only – it is against all Latin America and we have to make our point of view.

On October 22, 2014 he released his latest album “Un Amor” (One Love). The album features Reggae artistes such as Kymani Marley, son of Bob Marley and Dread Mar I of Argentina, another of the great Reggae musicians in Latin America.

“Un Amor” is the first album in his career which includes songs done in three languages: Spanish, Portuguese and English.The album was produced by Jamaican producer, Jason “J-Vibe” Farmer, who has produced several work that has received Grammy nominations for internationally renowned artistes such as Sean Paul, Estelle and the Third World band.

In fact, this is his first album that has not been produced by him.

“It is the first album in which I include a music producer. So far it was always I who produced, well I came to the conclusion that in Chile there wasn’t any music producer who were experts in Reggae, no more than I. Therefore I ended up being the producer of all my previous works. And although the results left me happy, well despite all the awards and recognitions acheived, it seem to me that it was now time to put my music through an external filter. That search ended up with Farmer.”

For Quique the album “Un Amor” represents more than just fulfilling a goal and a dream.

“I have always wanted musicians from Jamaica to play my music and in this album, on some of the tracks that finally happened. And not only that,  I saw them really enjoying themselves while performing my songs and my suggestions on how to interpret the songs, This is especially meaningful because I am from South America and they are musicians from the island where they invented  this music that I love and which is the cultural source. I am like an adopted son of reggae and with this gesture I saw that they were truly loving me and accepting me as one more member of the family.”

Jablespañol’s Recommended Tracks

Track #1  “No Me Rendiré” deserves its place as the opening track on the album, and represents a good first impression for any great Reggae musician.

Track #2 “Live Another Day” which features Kymani Marley is the first song that he has ever done with a son of Marley.  The track is an hypnotic fusion of Rock and Reggae  with elements of Dancehall. It is also the only song  which has a combination of lyrics in Spanish and English.

Track #3  “Un Amor” (One Love), was written on his birthday and is the title song of the album. One cannot avoid noticing the striking similarity of the title to Marley’s “One Love”

Track #4 “Chileno del Roots” which pays tribute to his title as the Chilean Rootsman, evokes memories of Bob Marley’s song “Roots” from the compilation album “Rebel Music”. Like Marley, Neira establishes his authenticity as a Reggae singer and his deep connection to his faith and to his people as he declares himself “Roots al hueso, Roots to the bone.”

Track #7 “Solamente Tu” is the only exclusive Dancehall song on the album.

Track #8 “Cada Cosa En Su Momento” has the nostalgic feel of sweet Rub-A Dub music of the early 1980’s. it is the first song that was written for this album. If you are a fan of Sugar Minott then you are bound to enjoy listening to this theme.

Track #13 “Patient Love” which is the English version of the opening track “No Me Rendiré” is the only song that is performed exclusively in English, It perfectly captures the element of Jamaican Lover Rock. For some people it speaks to his love for Reggae music and his yearning to have his music played on the airwaves of the land where Reggae was born. This might very well be the song which gives him his debut into the Jamaican market.

5 star

Base on the quality of the music which was produced on this album, we expect that “Un Amor” will become one of the  greatest Reggae albums from Latin America. It s truly a classIc wIth every song on the album worth listening.
