Who was the voice of Queen?

 Music

Fredie Mercury

In 1973, the band released their first self-titled album, but it took two more recordings for Queen's music to really catch on. Their third record, Sheer Heart Attack (1974), featured their first hit, "Killer Queen," a song about a high-class call girl. The single hit No. 2 on the U.K. charts, and peaked at No. 12 in the U.S.

With a sound that has been described as a fusion of hard rock and glam rock, Queen had an even bigger hit the following year with their album, A Night at the Opera (1975). Mercury wrote the song "Bohemian Rhapsody," a seven-minute rock operetta, for the album. Overdubbing his voice, Mercury showed off his impressive four-octave vocal range on this innovative track. The song hit the top of the charts in Britain and became a Top 10 hit in the United States.

In addition to his talents as a singer and songwriter, Mercury was also a skilled showman. He knew how to entertain audiences and how to connect with them. He liked to wear costumes—often featuring skintight spandex—and strutted around the stage, encouraging fans to join in the fun. Artistic in nature, Mercury was also actively involved in designing the art for many of the group's albums.

 Folklore

LETRA 'PAJARILLO'


Voy a dedicar mi canto a mi patria y mi bandera
sabana q tanto quiero hijas de tierras llaneras.

Esteros y morichales caminos y tolvaneras
con la compañía sagrada del cuarto y arpa llanera.

Mi llano que lindo eres que lindo es el ser llanero
llanura q me has parido y que te quiero de veras
permíteme que te diera de mi canta una pajarillo

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa…..

Pajarillo pajarillo que cantas por donde quieras
vamos a unir el cantar pa cantarle a Venezuela la
tierra que pare machos y no se dan donde quieran
de esos que a riegan la vida cuando toca defenderla
como hizo bolívar el que libertador fuera que lucho
a capa y espada por defender un nuestra tierra nosotros
que no podemos hacerlo como el lo hiciera vamos hacerlo
cantado pero con voz altanera que retumben los caminos
que recorran las fronteras para amante de legado y
fija nuestra bandera ya que desde muy pequeño nos
recorre por la venas amar querer y sentir nuestra patria
Venezuela

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
aaaaaaaaaaaaa....
El tema voy a cambiar por una causa en reclamo
que no se olvide el folklore vida del venezolano me voy a
unir a la lista de copleros afamados y en mi inspiración
otorgó pa jamás olvidarlos al caral de palmarito por
coplero vergatario a Luis sola del cubiro de los llanos
veterano a Luis custodió Loyola viejo cantor afamado
y el grandioso florentino en que canto con el diablo al
chistoso simón Díaz por su famoso cabello me despido
por ahora para volver no se cuando y nombrar mas
cantadores que hasta vivirán luchando por defender
el folklore y costumbres de mi llano

He helped expand the popularity of opera worldwide

 Opera

Luciano Pavarotti



Luciano Pavarotti, known for his larger-than-life showmanship that helped expand the popularity of opera, was born on October 12, 1935, on the outskirts of Modena in north-central Italy. The son of a baker and amateur singer, Pavarotti's family was crowded into a two-room apartment. By 1943, World War II had forced the family into a rented single room in the countryside.

Pavarotti wanted to be a soccer star, but found himself enjoying his father's recordings, featuring the popular tenors of the day such as Bjoerling, Tito Schipa and his favorite, Giuseppe Di Stefano. At around the age of 9, he began singing with his father in a small local church choir. He also studied singing with childhood friend Mirella Freni, who later became a star soprano.

At age 20, Pavarotti traveled with a chorus from his hometown to an international music competition in Wales. The group won first place.

Operatic Debut

Pavarotti abandoned a career in school-teaching to dedicate his life to singing. He won the international competition at the Teatro Reggio Emilia in 1961, making his operatic debut there as "Rodolfo" in La Boheme on April 29. He made his international debut in 1963, when he stepped in for tenor Giuseppe Di Stefano in the role of Rodolfo at the Royal Opera House in London.

Pavarotti then took part in the La Scala tour of Europe (1963-64). His American debut in February 1965, in the Miami production of Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor, also launched his legendary partnership with Australian soprano Joan Sutherland. It was with Sutherland that Pavarotti took London's Covent Garden and the New York Metropolitan Opera by storm in 1972 with a sparkling production of a Donizetti favorite, La Fille du Regiment.

Pavarotti's voice and performance were very much in the powerful style of the traditional Italian tenor. He quickly became internationally known as a concert performer, achieving a large following due to his many recordings and television appearances.

In 1982, Pavarotti appeared in the film Yes, Giorgio. That same year, he published a volume of an autobiography.

Reggaetón

Científicos desaprueban escuchar Reggaetón

 ReggaetónEscuchar música puede tener efectos positivos como también dañinos.Uno de los beneficios más referidos es el llamado “Efecto Mozart”, que afirma que los fetos y bebés que escuchan música clásica tienden a estar más tranquilos, concentrados y abiertos a los estímulos. Además se descubrió que ese tipo de música fomenta el hábito de aprendizaje y es capaz de hacer más inteligentes y razonables a las personas, de acuerdo con una serie de estudios realizados en Miami, Florida, que determinaron los efectos que produce cada género musical en el cerebro y la respuesta del ser humano a estos estímulos. No obstante, cuando los participantes de la investigación fueron sometidos a escuchar reggaetón, los expertos observaron que el efecto es totalmente contrario al de la música clásica. Se descubrió que este tipo de música daña el hipotálamo, disminuye la capacidad cerebral, así como la memoria a corto plazo y en consecuencia, el aprendizaje cuesta más. Ya a fines del año pasado la otorrinolaringóloga chilena Catalina Matalón explicó el riesgo que implica para el oído humano este estilo musical, no sólo por el volumen al que son escuchados, sino por la estructura sonora de las canciones, por su composición de frecuencias.
