AMORES SIN CAUSAS
ALFONSINA Y EL MAR (LIVE)
BIOGRAPHY: MÓNICA MANAKER
I am a singer-songwriter born in Argentina, currently living in Ivory Coast.
My love for the guitar and poetry began I was six years old, living in my hometown Rosario. Influenced by my comfort in the guitar and unique experiences worldwide, I've focused on a simplistic guitar and voice approach to Latin and Oriental music.
My music combines elements of Latin American folklore, oriental rhythms, pop and world music. This eclectic mix reflects the diversity of countries where I've lived (Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Israel, the United States, Ethiopia and Ivory Coast )
In 2010 I released my first album, "Ze maguia" ("Here it comes"), with songs in Hebrew. My second album, "Amores sin causas" ("Love without reason") I recorded in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and was released in Ethiopia, Spain and Israel.
My third Album "Revelada" was released in Israel in 2018.
The tenderness of my music is tangible with the strumming of the guitar chords; the freshness of the Latin rhythms combined with traveling harmonies converge into beautiful melodies that converse freely in the space that me and the musicians create for the audience in concerts.
