From St. Croix Music Magazine, Issue #1, October, 2006
I honestly can’t understand why this girl isn’t hot on the Latin charts! But as you’ll find out in our very first issue of STCROIXMUSIC.COM, we have made a great discovery. Not to say that she is an unknown artist, because I’m sure that many people know her music. We just want to try to bring her talents to as many people as this publication reaches. And hopefully, with all the countries that we are reaching, that will be a lot. Our list of bands (and their friends) that we contact from around the world is constantly growing.
Born in Zaragoza, Spain, the first step in Anna’s career as a singer was at the age of four when she participated in a song contest on Spanish radio. Later she enrolled in the “Niccolo Paganinni” conservatory in Zaragoza where she studied piano, musical forms, choir and soloist. She quickly learned that singing was her passion. When she was 9 she traveled throughout Spain with a musical group called “Rainbow”. Also at the same age she won first prize as a singer in a prestigious contest in her hometown. Since then she has won numerous awards in Spain and the US. You can read about them if you visit her website that I’ll list at the end of this column.
Presently Anna is with a group in Miami called “Ahnika”, and they are producing some very polished recordings and sophisticated arrangements. This is a band that I would love to see here at our own “Divi Casino” one day. This band kicks! I’d love to see if they do the acoustic guitar parts on this recording live! They sound like a top notch Latin dance/recording band and I can see them getting a huge following. We’ll, that is as long as Anna is up front! Not to take anything away from this wonderful band, but this article is centered around, and inspired by Anna’s incredible voice. And as you can see, she has the looks to go with it! I just wish that I had a clearer picture, but I can’t get in touch with her at the moment because she might be on tour. So whether it’s with “Ahnika” or a back up band of some of St. Croix’s finest, I’m sure that she would be well received here in paradise.
So please take the time to listen to more of her incredible voice and to leave her a message on her website below, and don’t forget to tell her that you heard her here on St. Croix Music Magazine.
