I'm Sara Lilu, a singer and songwriter from Tenerife, currently living in Barcelona for the past 4 years. After much effort and dedication, the time has come to embark on my first solo album: 7 original songs + a cover, set to be released in 2024. I'm very excited to share this music with you!

Who is Sara Lilu?

I was born in the Canary Islands and at the age of 16, I moved to Madrid to continue my musical studies. There, I had my first experiences in the music scene, connecting with great musicians. After two years, I moved to Barcelona to continue my studies, developing as an artist, collaborating on different projects, and performing in the city's main venues as part of the Barcelona jazz scene.

Now, the time has finally come to capture the music that has been with me for years. Each song is a reflection of a past experience, a person, or an internal reflection, a self-help service for my better understanding of the world. I invite you to be part of this particular universe, an invented reality that is somewhat magical and surreal, yet very relatable.

The Band

This is an ambitious project in which I am accompanied by no less than eight incredible musicians. My greatest luck is that they are also like family to me, and each one of them brings so much to me both personally and musically. They are:

  • The Flutes: Ana Ayala and Martí Pareras. From the Canary Islands and Catalonia respectively, these two golden arrows are a crucial element in the sound of the album, masterfully exploring the limits of the instrument.

  • The Guitars: Sebastian Norén and Frederico Vannini. Originally from Sweden and Brazil, two of the best guitarists in the Catalan scene. Each one has a very rich and special background, capable of moving through endless genres with music as their mother tongue.

  • The Keyboard: Kevin Díaz. Originally from the Canary Islands and with half Cuban descent, he currently collaborates with artists like Mertixell Nedderman, Vic Mirallas, La Sra Tomasa... He always knows which notes to play to make things sound incredible.

  • The Bass: Xavi Veres. Originally from Catalonia, he is one of the grooviest bassists in the current scene. He is the bassist of the Catalan band Ciutat.

  • The Percussion: Tramel Levalle. Originally from Chile, he has worked with great artists such as Richard Bona, Alba Armengou or Adriano Galante. He is a key piece of the formation, as thanks to his ingenuity, the songs take on a spectacular life and personality.

  • The Drums: Estefanía Chamorro. Originally from Catalonia and with half Colombian descent, she combines a taste for tradition with a curiosity for the new. After a year in Brazil, she has returned to Barcelona loaded with experience and eager to make us dance.

#02 / Exclusiva! El disco está grabado

Queridxs mecenas, me llena de alegría anunciarles que los últimos días hemos estado encerrados en el Tercero Studios en Santa Coloma de Gramenet (Barcelona) y ¡ya tenemos el disco grabado! Han sido unos días muy intensos de trabajo con un equipazo de músicos e ingenieros, y puedo decir que el resultado es mejor incluso de lo que esperábamos. Todavía no he compartido nada por redes, pero quería adelantarles algunas imágenes del proceso de grabación. Pronto les traeré más noticias y posiblemente algún pequeño adelanto de la música en sí :)

Gracias a sus aportaciones hemos podido grabar en uno de los mejores estudios del país, con un personal inmejorable. Les estoy profundamente agradecida <3 hasta pronto!

Un abrazo,

Sara Lilu

#01 / ¡Lo hemos conseguido!

Hemos llegado al objetivo de la campaña, ¡7 días antes de que acabe! No quepo en mí de la ilusión que me hace saber que mi primer disco ya es una realidad. Y esto ha sido posible únicamente gracias a que ustedes, lxs mecenas, han puesto su confianza y su apoyo financiero en mi proyecto. Les agradezco profundamente este gesto y les prometo que pronto podrán escuchar con sus propios oídos la música tan especial que estamos preparando.

Si logramos superar el objetivo inicial, dependiendo de lo que se recaude podremos acompañar la música de material audiovisual de alta calidad (aka. videoclips). Nosotrxs ya tenemos las ideas, los grabaríamos en verano para que salieran a la vez que los singles en septiembre-octubre.

Gracias de todo corazón <3 pronto más noticias!
