Ana Sol Escobar was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina to Colombian parents. Her father, an astrology devotee, analyzed her natal astrological chart and proclaimed that his daughter was going to be an artist. And she proved him right, beginning serious dance instruction at the age of five. Spending most of her childhood in Colombia, she also traveled extensively with her parents. By the time she reached university, she became interested in music and spent much of her university career studying all aspects of music including sound engineering and piano.
1999: Escorpion De Primavera
Anasol's second studio album Astros was released in 2002, under Sony Music Colombia, produced by Luis Fernando Ochoa (Shakira, Ricky Martin, Bacilos). The album was highly successful in Colombia. It was certified gold during its first week of sales and was certified platinum. The album spawned three official singles, "Sin Miedo A Caer" was released in August 2002 to critical acclaim[according to whom?] and a successful run in Colombia. "Voy volando" was her second single and finally her third single "Amantes Invisibles".
2005–07: Sentimiento and Anasol
The first single "Sentimiento", music and lyrics by the artist, expresses the power of emotion to move. It is an homage to life, encouraging people to be able to take risks and to not be afraid to feel. "I am proud of this work because I explored different aspects of my musical personality, connecting my poetry with my thoughts regarding life".
Anasol, which comprises 11 tracks and a bonus dance mix track of "Sentimiento", is a "virtual pop" album; "virtual pop because my music contains visual electronic elements, combined with other elements normally found in the pop genre, such as guitars and drums".
Her words are inspired by such literary giants as Ernesto Sabato, Marguerite Yourcenar and Julio Cortázar. Anasol expresses in her songs Scorpio's passion and sensibility. Musically she has been influenced by the work of Everything But The Girl, Tori Amos, Madonna, Gustavo Ceratti and Index ID just to name a few.
Among some of the stand-out[according to whom?] tracks from Anasol are: Nace: "it is the power of an outrageous laugh in the middle of a splendorous afternoon;" Dame: "in this song a very special person gives me the wings to ask him for a surreal moment; and Sube el Alma, which "talks about how vulnerable we become when we face those things that makes one uplift their soul."
With regard to the subject matter of this CD, Anasol says that she wishes to transmit to people the will to live. "Sometimes when we are young we think we are immortal, that everything will last forever. We forget that we can get invent life in the dawn of every day".
She states that she is always trying to find herself, maybe because she dreams, like her name, that the sun will always shine upon her. Her greatest wish with this production is "to express myself, with the freedom provided by the elements, to create, surprise, and invent things for others". In 2014, she sang the song for the peace the same day, Juan Manuel Santos the president of Colombia was re-elected, she sang with Fredy Acosta, James Fiorentino y Julio Monroy.
