ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Record label" viva viva" has just released the latin production " amanece" of cuban singer, songwriter " michael mendez" michael, who at the end of the eighties went to number third in the hot ones with his hit " yo si te quiero"
sharing the top three with latin icons like " Rocio Jurado"
and Argentinian latin pop group " Los Iracundos" and after that, several of his songs being recorded by new artist "Sonia Cortez" including " Amigo Mio" one of the favorite tracks on the album released by " Picap" record label, one of the most respectables record labels in Spain
with his hit " Amiga Mia" later released by Sony latin in Mexico, and also producing well-known singer-songwriter " Roberto Arundel" which recorded michael's song " Aquel Farol" a nostalgic song dedicated to old " San Juan".
Makes a comeback to the record industry with this unique production that takes him back to his acoustic roots in Puerto Rico, performing in flamenco style " Por Que Yo Soy Gitano" " Los Versos Sencillos De Jose Marti,
( music composed by Oscar Gomez in Spain) " Como Yo Te Quiero" also in the 'rumba flamenca' style.
" Amanece" which is the title of the cd is arranged musically as a traditional Danza Cubana, and in Mendez, lyrics he denounces the present problematic of his native island. " Si No Estas Junto a Mi" is a pop ballad that could be with no doubt the central song of a latin soap opera or a movie. " Yo Si Te Quiero" the same version that he recorded with the symphonic orchestra of madrid , that took him to the top of the charts of international radio stations in Latin America and Europe. Also in this album there is another version of the same song recorded in 2004 .And to finalize this unique cd " Yo Soy Aquel Cantor" a song that has been called by many the official identity song of any authentic troubador performed only with his voice, his Spanish guitar, and beautiful violin strings. We have no doubts that this production by Michael Mendez, is by far the most complete and authentic one so far of this unique artist.

No doubt, your songs have meaning and it comes from the heart. Job well done as most songs today tend to be meaningless. My favorite is Yo Si Te Quiero 1987 ver.
Hey Latin Music Industry, Look Out! A++

Un trovador, con tremenda cancion.
Felicitaciones a este cantautor, de verdad que ese es el unico trovador en el exilio, genial, que tema, y que musica, como dirian en Cuba, se Boto de Salao!! Michael sigue adelante que como tu hay pocos.

Israel Rodriguez

Amanece
LA CANCION " AMANECE" ES EL TEMA MUSICAL MAS PROFUNDO Y MELANCOLICO QUE HE ESCUCHADO SOBRE EL TEMA DE LA POBREZA, Y LAS JINETERAS EN CUBA, SU INTERPRETE HACE UNA DENUNCIA SOCIAL, ES UNA LASTIMA QUE OTROS CANTAUTORES CUBANOS, COMO AMAURY GUTIERREZ, Y PANCHO CESPEDES, NO HAGAN LO MISMO QUE MICHAEL MENDEZ, BRAVO MICHAEL. POR LO MENOS HAY ALGUIEN QUE LO HAGA EN UN GENERO MUSICAL MAS SERIO.

Maria Lourdes

Gran contenido, gran cantautor
Felicito como cantautora tambien a Michael Mendez, su cd nos hace reflexionar, sonar..nos traslada a la reflexion sobre una Cuba oprimida,amanece es una cancion de alto sentido social,donde en Cuba la juventud escribe en las paredes la palabra Amanece como rebeldia a esa dictadura castrista por la esperanza de un dia disfrutar de una Cuba libre.La voz de este cantautor es unica,lo felicito por su melodia, por su letra, y ademas lo conozco personalmente y es un artista en toda la totalidad e la palabra,para el mis felicitaciones y les invito que disfruten de esta produccion maravillosa, el es un cantautor reconocido mundialmente pero se que cada dia tendra mas reconocimientos y frutos de su lucha por un ideal sin desmayar jamas!

Maria Lourdes

Gran cantautor y luchador por sus ideales
Mis felicitaciones para Michael Mendez,gran produccion,melodia,y un alto contenido social en la letra de sus canciones,esta produccion hace sonar y nos traslada a un Cuba donde la juentud suena con un amanecer diferente sin opresion ni dictadura castrista,esa es la razon que la palabra Amanece ya hasta la escriben en las calles comno simbolo de rebeldia al sistema,Amanece es una cancion de esperanzas a los cubanos que sufren en esa isla hermosa las consecuencias de tanta dictadura.Maravillosa voz,un cantautor reconocido y amado mundialmente,para ti mis felicitaciones y te deseo que nunca dejes de luchar por tus ideales.ya se vende tu cd por miles cada dia,y se que ira en aumento aqui en Cd baby.

Angel Garcia


Por fin se pueden bajar digitalmente " Los Versos Sencillos De Jose Marti' musicalizados por Oscar Gomez, en la voz de Michael Mendez, ya no hay que rendirse al monopolio musical de Silvio Rodriguez, o Pablo Milanes.
