El Mismo Cielo (The Same Sky / Heaven) is from the outstanding Mexican – Christian singer Marcela Gandara who has featured here twice before. Marcela’s music is so popular here, I hear people singing it outside my door in the street for ‘propina’ (tips). I’m a huge fan of Marcela and today’s song is about being reborn and seeing the divinity in nature.
Me haces vivir (You make me live),
Me haces reir, (You make me laugh)
Y respirar (and breathe).
El Mismo Cielo is the title track of her 2009 album. She has produced 6 albums in total. Marcela sings here about walking down the same streets, but proclaiming she is not the same – rather a tourist seeing everything anew because she is with her saviour. The sea and stars are expressed to her in this voice and even in the silence her epiphany reminds her to stay close.
Christian music is one of my favourite music genres. The melodies and passion in the performances are really second to none, as far as I have appreciated them. I mentioned in the post Agnus Dei by Michael W Smith that after I was baptised in 2003 by the Mornington Baptist church I was introduced to a plethora of Christian artists and groups whose music I still hold very dear.
I learnt of Marcela’s music after I came to Colombia and by good fortune heard her music one day in a perfumier. The fragrances took a back-seat to her intoxicating voice. I had to hear her again after I got home, which I did and every song on her 1 hour music list floored me. I hope you enjoy today’s song El Mismo Cielo (The Same Sky):
Lovely song, great voice, and terrific graphics on the video!
Whenever you write here Bruce I have to relisten to the song to absorb it how you may have heard it. That’s very nice of you.
Fantastic voice Matt! The complete sound…really smooth.
Marcela es the ants pants as far as I’m concerned. Her voice is from another planet.
It is quality for sure. I’m language challenged but I don’t need to know…it’s super.
The first article I wrote on her, ‘adorandote’, you can see when compared to her partner singer, the voice just flows out of her. She seems just born with it or made for it. It means a lot Max that you like her as well.
My pleasure Matt. I’m tough on women singers. She sings for the song and doesn’t do…what I call vocal gymnastics…and that is a great thing.
Yes. I agree about the vocal gymnastics part. She’s a true-blue singer from the top of any shelf. If I had to choose a singer to represent the best of the best Marecla would be my go-to. No question.
Singers who do them…really get on my nerves. Like a band Matt…I like performers who play for the song. That is why I don’t like progressive bands much.
Marcela is my Olympic go-to singer if needed haha.
I hardly hear today’s music Max, I’m afraid to say. if anyone knows and good stuff I would like to hear it.
I only hear new music through bloggers Matt…that is it.
Let me know if you cross anything good. All I hear is sh#t from stuff coming out today.
Yea…the only stuff I like Matt is alternative rock…because their influences sound like ours.
Matt I go to a blogger named Eclectic Music Lover… He only covers new alternative music…NOT top 40. He is a very good writer. Bands send him recordings on some…and he picks the ones he likes.
If you are ever interested…this is his site… https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/39614384
Same here alternative rock. I will follow him. You are a good fellow! Thank you.
My pleasure Matt…I think you will like him. I like the alt rock songs a lot.
