The voice of Mariona Sagarra

Today is World Voice Day with the central theme ‘One World, Many Voices’. So it is the perfect moment to enjoy this video of performer Mariona Sagarra, voice and effects unit, who loves to explore the possibilities of her voice combining it with poetry: ‘Dues dones’ (‘Two Women’), a poem by Maria-Mercè Marçal.

On her website Mariona describes her art as follows: ‘Music, voice and poetry. My intention has been to weave different worlds together, internal dynamics, possible combinations, improvisations and surprises, timbres and emotions. Sonorities tainted with tradition.’

Her latest CD is called ‘Deixa’m tornar-te a dir’ (‘Let me tell you once more’), inspired by Montserrat Abelló’s poetry.

A composer about Conxita Badia’s voice

An unmistakable voice with an expression so full of emotion, but always natural and sincere which makes of Conxita Badia – ‘voice of our songs’ – an ideal interpreter of my songs.

Pianist and composer Frederic Mompou who frequently accompanied Conxita singing his songs, like ‘Damunt de tu només les flors‘.
