2006) - More than a singer, Spaniard Niña Pastori is one of the most extraordinary sensitivities of her generation. This is telling indeed when listening to her latest album, Joyas Prestadas (Borrowed Classics), a handful of evergreens that cast her talented voice and artistic expression outside the flamenco genre.
The album will be released in the U.S. on May 30th. Its first single is Vivir sin aire, a song written by Mana's lead singer Fher.
Niña Pastori burst onto the Spanish music scene a decade ago, giving flamenco a pop sensibility that sounded at once wise and fresh. It was tradition coming to the present to enrich a new contemporary voice.
Joyas Prestadas is both a big challenge and a step forward. For the first time, Niña Pastori not only ventures outside flamenco, she also sings covers that are stamped in the hearts of many listeners. These are songs by great artists, such as Joan Manuel Serrat, Alejandro Sanz, Maná, Juan Luis Guerra, Armando Manzanero and Luz Casal, among others. Yet Niña Pastori takes these classics to new heights.
Songs like Mediterráneo, Cuando nadie me ve, Vivir sin aire, Burbujas de amor, Angelitos negros, Pájaros de barro, Lo eres todo, Todavía, Hoy igual que ayer and María de la O have gained new meaning and depth. The songs found on this sixth album in Niña Pastori's career have ceased to be borrowed and have become the property of her grand voice and spectacular talent
