Carn León Brings Quality And A Party Feel To Hard Rock Live Florida Show
Carn León, a regional Mexican singer/songwriter, has been named an Artist on the Rise by Billboard following the success of her debut single on the Regional Mexican Airplay chart two years ago. León, the former lead singer of Grupo Arranke, has since charted seven more songs, two of which are at the top.
On stage, León’s abilities are unparalleled. Even more surprisingly for a regional Mexican act in South Florida, where regional Mexican fans are scarce and major artists in the genre rarely play in venues near Miami, he performed to a nearly sold-out crowd on Sunday at Miami’s Hard Rock Live arena (September 4). However, León has a quibble. The following are the five most important things I learned from his show.
First and foremost, León performs on a grand scale. A 20-piece band, including four clarinets and four trumpets, played in the background throughout his two-hour set. The sophisticated arrangements are the work of musicians Gilberto Meneses on tuba for banda tracks and Orlando Aispuro on guitar and keyboards.
Different regions’ perceptions of “Mexican music” must change. Seeing a packed Hard Rock arena, which is usually reserved for pop, rock, and alternative acts, demonstrated that music has a broad appeal outside of its traditional stages and that people are willing to pay a premium for a good show. If you need an excuse to buy a stunning cowboy hat, go see a León show.
Third, León’s favourite thing is the audience. We appreciate how each song is always preceded by an introduction. It feels like a huge celebration when León walks around with a drink in his hand. Saludcita! (as he would say) (as he would say).
Simply put, he’s a musician’s musician. understands how to play the guitar? Check. Sing a cappella. Check. Versatile? Consider how he handles the transition from the bravado of banda to the gentleness of ballads. He also has a good hip swivel.
- Be prepared to spill the beans. León is a talker who gives old songs new life. For example, we discovered that “You’re the One I Love” was to blame for him losing his virginity (Sigues Siendo Tu in Spanish). One of the night’s most memorable lines was, “Having a toxic woman in the house is a blessing.” This means she loves you regardless of how ugly you are, which is why men have no shame. We never keep the promises we make.
