Música mediterránea en Panamá
El boom de la música mediterránea en Panamá lo inició el grupo Alabina, conformado por los niños de Sara (un grupo de flamenco español) y una cantante egipcia, Ishtar

En el 2000, “alguien” puso en una radioemisora local canciones del grupo Alabina, que tenían letras en español y árabe, y desde entonces el interés por la música y bailes mediterráneos creció entre los panameños, según cuenta el dj. Jorge Gavri Gavrilidis, de Radio 10.

Esta emisora es el único medio que tiene un programa, Noches Mediterráneas, de una hora dedicado por completo a este tipo de música. Su conductor, dj. Gavri, pone música hebrea, turca, árabe, griega y flamenca de lunes a viernes a las 6:00 p.m.

Gavrilidis cuenta que después de Alabina, se empezó a escuchar Tarkan con Simarik, y posteriormente Ojos así, de Shakira.

Dj. Gavri, un panameño de 19 años e hijo de un griego y una salvadoreña, aclara que en su programa pone canciones no comerciales. “En otras emisoras hay espacios de 9-12 minutos, pero ponen música comercial como Shakira, Estopa o Tarkan. Nosotros ponemos cosas que no son tan populares, mandamos a pedir CD de Nueva York, Chicago y Grecia. Frecuento emisoras de Israel, España, Grecia y hago intercambios con djs profesionales de Grecia, España, Israel, Jordania, Turquía, ya que es difícil conseguir esta música en Panamá”.

Noches Mediterráneas, que ya tiene ya cinco meses al aire, comenzó enfocado hacia la música griega, pero a petición del público ampliaron sus horizontes a ritmos del resto del Medio Oriente y partes de Europa.

“La gente cada día me pide más música en otros idiomas. Se saben las letras, los artistas, e incluso cómo pronunciar los nombres de las canciones”, dijo Gavrilidis.

A continuación el dj. Gavri detalla quiénes son los artistas pegados en lo que se refiere a “música mediterránea”:

Música griega

• Antique: es una pareja de jóvenes suecos radicados en Grecia. Cantan en inglés y en griego música con una tendencia electrónica que en los últimos dos años ha sido “la influencia juvenil musical” en Grecia. Además han sido muy bien aceptados en Europa. Representaron a Grecia en Eurovisión del 2001, donde ocuparon el tercer lugar.

• Arvanitaki: es una cantante griega de trayectoria. Tiene una canción tan conocido que es como un símbolo patrio en Grecia. Se llama Dinata, dinata (Fuerte, fuerte). Canta ritmos griegos con influencias de otros países árabes.

• Giorgos Akaios: uno de los mejores intérpretes de Grecia. Canta música tradicional de su país con ritmos acelerados, pero sin irse a lo electrónico.

• Anna Vissi: una de las mejores exponentes griegas. Representó a su patria en el Eurovisión de 1982.

• Kaiti Garbi: una de las más hermosas cantantes de Grecia. Ha sido muy reconocida por su variedad de ritmos, ya que no se ha centrado en un solo género.

Música hebrea

• Eyal Golan: es el cantante más popular de la música hebrea. Ha venido a Panamá a dar conciertos para la comunidad hebrea.

• Shlomo Artzi: se inició en los años 60 y con el transcurrir del tiempo se convirtió en el cantante con más ventas registradas. Se inclina por lo tradicional, como si fuera el típico de Israel.

• Sarit Hadad: es una guapísima intérprete hebrea que haconquistado Europa con su trabajo. Es la representante de Israel en Eurovisión 2002, con la canción Lets light a candle together.

Música turca

• Tarkan: este hombre revolucionó al mundo entero con su canción Simarik (conocida como “Kiss, kiss”). Esta pieza ha sido interpretada en griego, árabe e inglés.

• Ebru Gundes: es una de las grandes representantes de Turquía en la música tradicional.

Música árabe

• Amr Diab: de Egipto. Es el más popular de los cantantes árabes. Ha dado conciertos en Australia, Europa, Canadá y Estados Unidos.

•Diana Haddad: una voz joven y fresca en la música árabe.

•Fairuz: conocida como “la diva libanesa”, es una de las cantautoras más gustadas y más solicitadas en Panamá. Ha dado conciertos en Canadá y Estados Unidos con gran aceptación.

Música flamenca y otras

Los representantes de este tipo de música son los Gipsy Kings, Estopa, y un grupo de mujeres españolas llamado Papa Levante, quienes cantan canciones románticas y con mucho mensaje.

Hay muchas canciones que son fusiones de piezas en griego y en español a la vez, griego y árabe, griego y turco, o traducciones (a más de un idioma) de canciones populares como Ojos así, de Shakira y Simarik, de Tarkan.

¿Dónde bailar esta música?

Dj Gavri informa que hay lugares en Panamá que ponen 6-7 minutos de música mediterránea como La Cantina, Café Dalí, y Liquid, pero ponen solo las canciones comerciales de grupos como Estopa, Shakira, Tarkan, Alabina, etc. Su sueño es tener un local solo dedicado a la mediterránea.

El baile del vientre o belly dance

También hay un auge del baile del vientre o el belly dance. “Egipto, creo, es la cuna del belly dance. He visto belly dance en Grecia, y en Marruecos se baila bastante, todo depende del país árabe que visites”, indicó el locutor.

Se pueden ver shows de belly dance en Café Dulivan y en el restaurante Casablanca. En este último baila Karina Fernández, quien también es profesora de este tipo de baile en la Academia D’ Eric.

Hace dos meses Fernández empezó a dar las clases a mujeres entre los 20 y 70 años de edad y se llenó tanto que tuvieron que crear otra clase, y aun así tiene una lista de espera de 30 damas.

Hay tres niveles, uno por mes. Las dos clases actuales van por el segundo nivel. “No es difícil. Es cuestión de mucha práctica y concentración. Hay que tener mucha coordinación para mover la cabeza, el tronco, las caderas y las manos al mismo tiempo y separadamente”, explicó la instructora.

Una estudiante opina que la danza del vientre es “más de músculos, más de forma, más de figura y la hace sentir a una más sexy”.

Además, señala la instructora, la danza árabe es la única que admite todo tipo de edades y de cuerpos.

Light my fire

Light My Fire - THE DOORS



You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher

Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire

The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre

Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire, yeah

The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre

Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire

You know that it would be untrue
You know that I would be a liar
If I was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher

Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire

Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire
Try to set the night on fire

De regreso a c asa ( Enya)

Me ha sido dado
un momento desde el cielo
mientras estoy caminando
rodeada por la noche,
Las estrellas en lo alto
formulan un deseo bajo la luz de la luna.
De regreso a casa
Recuerdo
sólo los días buenos.
De regreso a casa
Recuerdo todos los mejores días.
Voy de regreso a casa
Puedo recordar
cada nuevo día.

Me muevo en silencio
con cada paso que doy,
la nieve cae a mi alrededor
como ángeles volando,
Muy a lo lejos
es mi deseo bajo la luz de la luna.

May it be ( El señor de los anillos)

que así sea

Que una estrella del atardecer
Brille sobre ti
Que cuando cae la oscuridad
Tu corazón sea sincero
Recorres un camino solitario
¡Oh! Qué lejos estás del hogar

Mornie utúlië (llega la oscuridad)
Cree y encontrarás tu camino
Mornie alantië (cae la oscuridad)
Una promesa vive ahora dentro de ti

Que la llamada de las sombras
Vuele lejos
Que tu viaje siga
Para iluminar el día
Cuando la noche venza
Puedes salir para encontrar el sol

Mornie utúlië (llega la oscuridad)
Cree y encontrarás tu camino

Mornie alantië (cae la oscuridad)
Una promesa vive ahora dentro de ti

Una promesa vive ahora dentro de ti

Mariah carey (Hero)

Hero






There's a hero
If you look inside your heart
You don't have to be afraid
Of what you are
There's an answer
If you reach into your soul
And the sorrow that you know
Will melt away
And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you
It's a long road
When you face the world alone
No one reaches out a hand
For you to hold
You can find love
If you search within yourself
And the emptiness you felt
Will disappear
And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you
Lord knows
Dreams are hard to follow
But don't let anyone
Tear them away
Hold on
There will be tomorrow
In time
You'll find the way
And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you

Mariah carey ( When You Believe)

When You Believe






Many nights we pray
With no proof anyone could hear
And our hearts a hopeful song
We barely understood
Now we are not afraid
Although we know there's much to fear
We were moving mountains long
Before we know we could
There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail
It's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve
When you believe
Somehow you will
You will when you believe
In this time of fear
When prayer so often proves in vain
Hope seems like the summer birds
Too swiftly flown away
And now I am standing here
My heart's so full I can't explain
Seeking faith and speaking words
I never thought I'd say
There can be miracles
When you believe (When you believe)
Though hope is frail
It's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve (You can achieve)
When you believe
Somehow you will
You will when you believe
They don't always happen when you ask
And it's easy to give in to your fear
But when you're blinded by your pain
Can't see your way safe through the rain
Thought of a still resilient voice
Says love is very near
There can be miracles (miracles)
When you believe (When you believe)
Though hope is frail
It's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles
You can achieve (You can achieve)
When you believe
Somehow you will
You will when you believe
You will when you believe
You will when you believe
Just believe
You will when you believe

imagine (Lenon)

"Imagínate"

John Lennon



Imagina que no hay paraíso,

Es fácil si lo intentas,

No hay infierno debajo nuestro,

Sobre nosotros, sólo el cielo.

Imagina a toda la gente

Viviendo el hoy…



Imagina que no hay países,

No es difícil de hacer,

Nada por lo que matar o morir,

Ni tampoco religión,

Imagina a toda la gente,

Viviendo la vida en paz…



Imagina que no hay posesiones,

Me pregunto si puedes hacerlo,

Sin codicia o hambre,

Una hermandad de hombres,

Imagínate a toda la gente

Compartiendo todo el mundo…



Puedes decir que soy un soñador,

Pero no soy el único,

Espero que algún día te unas a nosotros

Y el mundo será uno.

Chiquitita
Chiquitita, tell me what's wrong
You're enchained by your own sorrow
In your eyes there is no hope for tomorrow
How I hate to see you like this
There is no way you can deny it
I can see that you're oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, tell me the truth
I'm a shoulder you can cry on
Your best friend, I'm the one you must rely on
You were always sure of yourself
Now I see you've broken a feather
I hope we can patch it up together

Chiquitita, you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go and the scars they're leaving
You'll be dancing once again and the pain will end
You will have no time for grieving
Chiquitita, you and I cry
But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
So the walls came tumbling down

And your love's a blown out candle

All is gone and it seems too hard to handle

Chiquitita, tell me the truth

There is no way you can deny it

I see that you're oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, you and I know

How the heartaches come and they go and the scars they're leaving

You'll be dancing once again and the pain will end

You will have no time for grieving

Chiquitita, you and I cry

But the sun is still in the sky and shining above you

Let me hear you sing once more like you did before

Sing a new song, Chiquitita

Try once more like you did before

Sing a new song, Chiquitita

Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita

DANCING QUEEN
You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, dig in the Dancing Queen
Friday night and the lights are low
Looking out for the place to go
Where they play the right music, getting in the swing
You come in to look for a King
Anybody could be that guy
Night is young and the music's high
With a bit of rock music, everything is fine
You're in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance...

You are the Dancing Queen, young and sweet, only seventeen
Dancing Queen, feel the beat from the tambourine
You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, dig in the Dancing Queen

You're a teaser, you turn 'em on
Leave them burning and then you're gone
Looking out for another, anyone will do
You're in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance...

You are the Dancing Queen, young and sweet, only seventeen
Dancing Queen, feel the beat from the tambourine
You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, dig in the Dancing Queen

DOES YOUR MOTHER KNOW?
You're so hot, teasing me
So you're blue but I can't take a chance on a chick like you
That's something I couldn't do
There's that look in your eyes
I can read in your face that your feelings are driving you wild
Ah, but girl you're only a child

Well I can dance with you honey
If you think it's funny
Does your mother know that you're out?
And I can chat with you baby
Flirt a little maybe
Does your mother know that you're out?

Take it easy (take it easy)
Better slow down girl
That's no way to go
Does your mother know?
Take it easy (take it easy)
Try to cool it girl
Take it nice and slow
Does your mother know?

I can see what you want
But you seem pretty young to be searching for that kind of fun
So maybe I'm not the one
Now you're so cute, I like your style
And I know what you mean when you give me a flash of that smile (smile)
But girl you're only a child

Well I can dance with you honey
If you think it's funny
Does your mother know that you're out?
And I can chat with you baby
Flirt a little maybe
Does your mother know that you're out?

Take it easy (take it easy)
Better slow down girl
That's no way to go
Does your mother know?
Take it easy (take it easy)
Try to cool it girl
Take it nice and slow
Does your mother know?

Well I can dance with you honey
If you think it's funny
Does your mother know that you're out?
And I can chat with you baby
Flirt a little maybe
Does your mother know that you're out?

FERNANDO
Can you hear the drums Fernando?
I remember long ago another starry night like this
In the firelight Fernando
You were humming to yourself and softly strumming your guitar
I could hear the distant drums
And sounds of bugle calls were coming from afar

They were closer now Fernando
Every hour every minute seemed to last eternally
I was so afraid Fernando
We were young and full of life and none of us prepared to die
And I'm not ashamed to say
The roar of guns and cannons almost made me cry

There was something in the air that night
The stars were bright, Fernando
They were shining there for you and me
For liberty, Fernando
Though I never thought that we could lose
There's no regret
If I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando

Now we're old and grey Fernando
And since many years I haven't seen a rifle in your hand
Can you hear the drums Fernando?
Do you still recall the frightful night we crossed the Rio Grande?
I can see it in your eyes
How proud you were to fight for freedom in this land

There was something in the air that night
The stars were bright, Fernando
They were shining there for you and me
For liberty, Fernando
Though I never thought that we could lose
There's no regret
If I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando

There was something in the air that night
The stars were bright, Fernando
They were shining there for you and me
For liberty, Fernando
Though I never thought that we could lose
There's no regret
If I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando
Yes, if I had to do the same again
I would, my friend, Fernando...

GIMME GIMME GIMME
Half past twelve
And I'm watching the late show in my flat all alone
How I hate to spend the evening on my own
Autumn winds
Blowing outside the window as I look around the room
And it makes me so depressed to see the phone
There's not a soul out there
No one to hear my prayer

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Won't somebody help me chase these shadows away
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

Movie stars
Find the end of the rainbow, with that fortune to win
It's so different from the world I'm living in
Tired of T.V.
I open the window and I gaze into the night
But there's nothing there to see, no one in sight
There's not a soul out there
No one to hear my prayer

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Won't somebody help me chase these shadows away
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight...
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight...

There's not a soul out there
No one to hear my prayer

Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Won't somebody help me chase these shadows away
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Take me through the darkness to the break of the day
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Won't somebody help me chase these shadows away
Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight
Take me through the darkness to the break of the day

I HAVE A DREAM
I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope with anything
If you see the wonder of a fairy tale
You can take the future even if you fail
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream

I have a dream, a fantasy
To help me through reality
And my destination makes it worth the while
Pushing through the darkness still another mile
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream

I have a dream, a song to sing
To help me cope with anything
If you see the wonder of a fairy tale
You can take the future even if you fail
I believe in angels
Something good in everything I see
I believe in angels
When I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream
I'll cross the stream - I have a dream

KNOWING ME, KNOWING YOU
No more carefree laughter
Silence ever after
Walking through an empty house, tears in my eyes
Here is where the story ends, this is goodbye

Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa)
There is nothing we can do
Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa)
We just have to face it, this time we're through
(This time we're through, this time we're through
This time we're through, we're really through)
Breaking up is never easy, I know but I have to go
(I have to go this time
I have to go, this time I know)
Knowing me, knowing you
It's the best I can do

Mem'ries (mem'ries), good days (good days), bad days (bad days)
They'll be (they'll be), with me (with me) always (always)
In these old familiar rooms children would play
Now there's only emptiness, nothing to say

Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa)
There is nothing we can do
Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa)
We just have to face it, this time we're through
(This time we're through, this time we're through
This time we're through, we're really through)
Breaking up is never easy, I know but I have to go
(I have to go this time
I have to go, this time I know)
Knowing me, knowing you
It's the best I can do

(repeat)

LAY ALL YOUR LOVE ON ME
I wasn't jealous before we met
Now every woman I see is a potential threat
And I'm possessive, it isn't nice
You've heard me saying that smoking was my only vice
But now it isn't true
Now everything is new
And all I've learned has overturned
I beg of you...

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me

It was like shooting a sitting duck
A little smalltalk, a smile and baby I was stuck
I still don't know what you've done with me
A grown-up woman should never fall so easily
I feel a kind of fear
When I don't have you near
Unsatisfied, I skip my pride
I beg you dear...

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Don't go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me

I've had a few little love affairs
They didn't last very long and they've been pretty scarce
I used to think that was sensible
It makes the truth even more incomprehensible
'Cause everything is new
And everything is you
And all I've learned has overturned
What can I do...

Don't go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Don't go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me

(repeat 2x and fade)

MAMMA MIA
I've been cheated by you since I don't know when
So I made up my mind, it must come to an end
Look at me now, will I ever learn?
I don't know how but I suddenly lose control
There's a fire within my soul
Just one look and I can hear a bell ring
One more look and I forget everything, o-o-o-oh

Mamma mia, here I go again
My my, how can I resist you?
Mamma mia, does it show again?
My my, just how much I've missed you
Yes, I've been brokenhearted
Blue since the day we parted
Why, why did I ever let you go?
Mamma mia, now I really know,
My my, I could never let you go.

I've been angry and sad about the things that you do
I can't count all the times that I've told you we're through
And when you go, when you slam the door
I think you know that you won't be away too long
You know that I'm not that strong.
Just one look and I can hear a bell ring
One more look and I forget everything, o-o-o-oh

Mamma mia, here I go again
My my, how can I resist you?
Mamma mia, does it show again?
My my, just how much I've missed you
Yes, I've been brokenhearted
Blue since the day we parted
Why, why did I ever let you go?
Mamma mia, even if I say
Bye bye, leave me now or never
mamma mia, it's a game we play
Bye bye doesn't mean forever

Mamma mia, here I go again
My my, how can I resist you?
Mamma mia, does it show again?
My my, just how much I've missed you
Yes, I've been brokenhearted
Blue since the day we part
