La [2] de Apolo


No bouquets of roses, no box of chocolates. Let’s be serious, please. What brings out Bea Pelea’s romantic side is reggaeton and the likes. The artist from Granada has managed to filter all the sounds that surrounded her in a childhood spent in Mexico and Guatemala (salsa, cumbia, dembow) and has turned them into tender (multiple) love letters, although one thing inevitably leads to another. “Tú sabes, bebé, que en el amor a veces se gana, a veces se pierde”, she exclaims in Sé que me buscas. No matter what, it is always a win-win situation for us if she keeps on pouring her personal diary onto the dancefloor.
