In this opportunity we have the pleasure of introducing you through International Salsa Magazine to Somaly Zapata, a Dominican singer who followed her path in the musical world firmly and in an evolutionary way in her musical themes, from her first song in merengue “Regálame” to his new theme song to be promoted at the moment “¿Verdad que duele?” In its sauce version.
She was born on July 24, 1988, from a very young age she showed inclinations for musical art, getting to participate in different social events. Her first song was a Mother’s Day gift to her grandmother when she was 13 years old. As the years went by, its melody and lyrics developed in the genres of Salsa, Merengue, Balada, Bachata or a fusion of them, giving it a characteristic that other songs do not have.
It was influenced by great tropical artists such as Milly Quezada, Olga Tañon, Celia Cruz, La India, among others; However, he did not show his voice to the public at that time because he was a very shy person, but always with a musical spirit deep inside him.
Later he began to perform in different activities imitating only the movements of Milly Quezada and doing an almost perfect mimic of his great songs. In her adolescence she began to discover herself as an artist on a vocal level through her lyrics, taking classes on topics related to this art, writing situations without personal experience, but that were interesting for a composer hungry to express her most intimate feelings.
