What an honor to have this beautiful and powerful singer come through to ishlab studio for our Acoustic Gold live session – Maya Azucena! Accompanied by her longtime collaborators and superb musicians, Christian Ver Halen on guitar and Ivan “Ive09” Katz on percussions, Maya performed the perfect set of originals and cover songs.
Enjoy this balanced mix starting off with Maya’s original and recent single “Fearless” followed by a terrific cover version of Jack White’s “Freedom at 21“. She also performs another beautiful original from her most recent album Cry Love called “Belong to the Sun“. After that you’ll hear Maya’s rendition of “Hallelujah“, one of my personal favorites. She finishes off with “Near“, another track from Cry Love, and a unique version of the 90s hit “Crazy“, originated by Seal.
Maya Azucena’s soulful voice, her level of artistry and social engagement is rare to find. She touches people’s hearts wherever she performs, represents real music globally and empowers women in more than one way.
