“Meraki” is, literally, do things putting your heart and soul. That's the reason why I've chosen this word as the title of my next album, which already existed months ago but only like an idea, a demo, a verbatim...More instruments, new melodies and production ideas have been added to the songs and now they want to be a great album.

This time I've decided to go all out. I've pampered every detail and I've opted to lay aside the “home-made” of always, putting this imaginary in professional hands who develop it as it deserves.

So, we've almost everything ready: the studio, the songs, the human team and the love. Only missing the people who have accompanied me so far. If you value my craft and you want that I'll be able to continue doing it, I'll need all your support.

This album is one of the most ambitious projects I have ever embarked on and it will be a pleasure to know that I am counting on you.

¿BUT...WHO'S MABEL FLORES?

Well, the one who writes these lines. I am 32 years old and live on the outskirts of Barcelona. I am a singer-songwriter and a social educator, both for conviction.

I started playing song making when I only knew 3 chords with the guitar because they seemed the only way to better fit in this world, to understand it and to understand myself, to build myself. At first I only sang them for myself but in 2011 I came to Terrassa and my life changed forever.

I started sharing some songs with my close circle and in 2013 was born La Flor del Otro, my first musical project, my first band, my first love, the first stages,... I learned so much during those years that I'll never be able to thank his existence.

La Flor del Otro, 2013
La Flor del Otro, 2013

Since then I've been combining concerts with my Social Education career and a part-time job, without pretensions, without haste. And little by little, the ball with which I played making music grew: my own project was born, it also came Entre mujeres, the endless tours and the rest of the good news.

Everything was happening in a beautiful, self-managed and natural way, until I made the guitar and voice my job. That's how I have been built all I am an all I have, with a lot of invisible work and optimism. And now, I don't want to inhabit this world in any other way than by sharing me, singing to you and letting ourselves be moved.

AND WHO HAS ACCOMPANIED ME HERE?

2020
2020

This is the team that has carefully dressed my songs, that has given me his hand on this path and has embraced me (literally) without prejudice, becoming a refuge both musical and personal.

Peri: the percussion and drum. Apart from giving the rhythm to this project, it is also my Robin, my constant, who focuses me when I detour.

Mar Safont: the bass and low frequencies. She's my midwife and always arrives with a divine outfit and the heart in her hands to give herself whole to art.

Cristina Vallribera: the keys. Her passion is theater and she's revelation actress (although the world doesn't know it yet). You will go far, my friend.

Jofré Orús: the electric guitar. He's in this project from the beggining, and without him all this wouldn't have come this far, so I can only thank him for having joined and trusted me.

Laia Pujol: the saxo. She brings peace and harmony and needs to imagine other places because the "here" tastes little.

WHAT WILL YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS BE INVESTED IN?

The quarantine by COVID-19 has arrived in the middle of album recording and has left everything halfway. Week by week I've seen how my economic activity (the concerts and the sale of live records) has completely stopped and has shaken the album.

THEN ... WHAT DO YOU TELL ME?

Before saying goodbye I want to thank you, with the heart in these words, that you have come this far.

#06 / Grabación finalizada!!

La semana pasada fue el último día de grabación y ya podemos decir que Meraki es lo que hace 9 meses quería ser...solo le faltan los últimos retoques de mix, post-producción y máster y os prometo que es una auténtica delicia.

Aquí tenéis una pista de quien será una de las colaboraciones...¿la conocéis?

Último día de estudio
Último día de estudio

La semana que viene empezamos con el envío de formularios!! Gracias, gracias y gracias!!!

#05 / ¡¡ 301 GRACIAS !!

¡¡¡Lo hemos conseguidoooo!!!

Esto es lo más emocionante que nos ha podido pasar en medio de esta marea de inseguridad que nos provocaba el no saber cómo mantener el latido de este proyecto sin conciertos. ¡Os habéis pasado de generosidad!

Gracias por toda la confianza y todo el apoyo que hemos recibido esto días, trabajaré mucho para que recibáis en vuestros oídos todo el cariño que nos habéis dado durante estos 40 días!!!

En los próximos días se realizará el cobro, estad atentas al correo electrónico que proporcionasteis (revisad bien el spam).

La recta final

Tan solo quedan 10 días y para qué mentir, estoy algo preocupada. Aun queda el 37% para poder conseguir el objetivo y a ratos me cuesta confiar en que llegaremos. Pero no pierdo la esperanza de que remontaremos.

Esta semana he estado en el estudio grabando voces y es una de las cosas más bonitas del proceso de hacer un nuevo disco. Escucharlo todo juntito, bien potente, para ponerle la guinda del pastel es una responsabilidad enorme y se crea dentro un remolino de emociones difícil de explicar. La alegría, el alboroto, la ternura, la melancolía, el amor, el enojo, el desenfado y querer transmitirlo todo tal cual lo siento yo, se me mete dentro y me eriza entera. Ojalá pudiera mostraros un poquito más.

Soy tan autoexigente que repito las tomas una y otra vez y solo espero que el resultado esté a la altura de toda vuestra confianza. Solo… read more

#03 / Algo más sobre Meraki

Buenísimos días querides!

Estamos a punto de llegar al 50% y estoy muy emocionada y agradecida. Cuentan las estadísticas que ahora vienen los días más difíciles, pero que hay que seguir animando a la gente a participar sin desanimarse. Así que mientras sigo haciendo difucisón (si vosotrxs me ayudáis a llegar a más gente, será mucho más fácil) os cuento un poco más...

El disco estará formado por 10 canciones y, si me lo puedo permitir, un bonus track. Algunas son inéditas y algunas las habréis escuchado en Instagram, porque soy una impaciente. Estos son los títulos de las canciones que encontraréis en Meraki. Si os apetece en unos días os cuento un poquito más sobre ellas... :)

La mujer incendio // Canta // Tant de bo // Com els ocells // Mi amante preferida // La fiera // Canciones en pijama // Algo torpe // Tiempo // Vamos a volar // Bonus track

Feliz lunes!!

#02 / 10 días de micromecenazgo

Ya han pasado 10 días desde que iniciamos la campaña y estamos a puntito de llegar al 40% del objetivo!

Cada vez estoy más convencida de que la vida es en colectividad, siempre. Y siento que este disco va a ser más vuestro que cualquiera de los que haya podido hacer antes, que formáis parte de él, y a la vez siento una gran responsabilidad. Espero estar a la altura de toda la confianza que estáis depositando en mi.

Ayer incorporamos una nueva recompensa, el "Pack algusto" en el que encontraréis una lámina tamaño DIN-A4 de esta preciosa ilustración de María Queralto, con un fragmento de una de las canciones de MERAKI.

¿Me ayudáis a seguir con ésto compartiéndolo con vuestro entorno y animándoles a participar? Es con el poquito de muchas, que las cosas se hacen grandes, y os quiero agradecer de nuevo a las 98 mecenas que ya habéis participado en este proyecto. Me emociona mucho vuestro apoyo.
