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.
