ABOUT THE SINGER
ABOUT THE RECORDING
WHAT OTHER PEOPLE SAY
Rodriguez was born in Cordoba, Argentina. She began to study music, namely
the piano, at the age of six and finally graduated in musical education
As lead vocalist of the Argentine folklore group "Grupo Azul"
she made variuos records, radio and television appearances and toured
In 1996 she formed a duo together with the famous Argentine guitarrist
and composer Jorge Cardoso and recorded with him two CD's. Since 1999
she performs Spanish folk songs together with Raphaella Smits.
Liliana Rodriguez is also a teacher for voice and popular Argentine music
(tango and folklore) as well as for Spanish songs.
These songs, most of which originate from folk songs, are typical examples
of the change to national pride. Between 1850 and 1950 foreign political
dominance became abhorrent. This included refusing to accept musical dictatorship.
There is a rich source of exciting Spanish folk music to draw from. The
French Impressionism of Debussy, Satie and Dukas greatly influence tone,
nuances, finesse and harmony in the broadest sense.
"Liliana Rodriguez's natural timbre and professional use of her voice
ideally fit this way of thinking. A folksy method of expression complements
expert voice control and proper articulation of language. Liliana presents
both long ballads and brief songs in an arresting and comprehensible way.Ē

which probably comes very close to the original intent ", and "she
