In front of a Rosalía and J Balvin unleashed, the public of OLM Souissi had no choice but to ignite Friday night in Rabat, on the occasion of the 18th edition of the Mawazine Rhythms of the World Festival ( 21-29 June).
Real stage beast, Rosalía has quickly adapted the scene, greeting the many poeple who came to meet her and absorbing their energy, taking them with her in a world where flamenco and urban sonorities marry naturally.
A true Spanish icon of the mix of genres, the young artist, whose video clips accumulate millions of views, caused a sensation with a selection of her best-known titles, including “Baghdad”, “Malamente” and “Con Altura”, or still “Di Mi Nombre” that showcases his sensational voice and brings out his flamenco inspiration.
Accompanied by her dancers and a flamenco group for her first concert in Morocco, Rosalía, with her attitude of warrior, did not hide her emotion, thanking her audience many times, showing them her gratitude.
With his artistic talent and his sense of aesthetics, J Balvin, as charismatic as talented, has, like Rosalía, shined under the night that descended on the international scene of OLM Souissi.
Ensuring the second part of the evening, the singer, faithful to his Latino rhythm, had his audience dance on his most famous hits, from “Raggaeton” to “Mi Gente” through “I like it”.
Also drawing in his most recent repertoire with “Loco Contigo”, the Colombian, with his puzzling allure, has literally exalted the crowd with a touch of madness, all in an atmosphere sometimes sensual, sometimes offbeat, which does not did not fail to delight those present.
With its neon lights, smoke and confetti, the scene of the OLM Souissi will have succeeded in making vibrate a present and faithful public, with this opening concert which coincides with the festival of the music.
Rosalía, who mixes perfectly flamenco and urban sounds, counts, at only 25 years old, five Grammy Latinos nominations. His songs “Malamente” and “Pienso en mira” embody the artist’s desire to go beyond the stylistic and geographical borders of Spain, while keeping a deeply Latin imprint.
Of Colombian origin, J Balvin is considered a prodigy of Latin music and mixing styles. Having collaborated with many international stars, the singer continues to explore styles that retain, however, a musicality imprinted with the rhythms of reggaeton and Latin music.
