Rosalía Vila Tobella (born 25 September 1993), known mononymously as Rosalía, is a Spanish singer and actress from Sant Esteve Sesrovires, Catalonia, Spain.[1] Known for her modern interpretations of flamenco music, Rosalía crossed the Spanish boundaries after receiving praise from international influencers and after several collaborations with artists such as J Balvin and Pharrell Williams.

Career[edit]

Rosalía has worked as a duo with Juan "Chicuelo" Gómez at the 2013 Panama International Film Festival and at the Festival Grec de Barcelona for the contemporary dance work De Carmen. In 2013 she participated in the Association of Performing Arts Professionals (APAP) Conference in New York, and was the lead voice in the culmination of the Año Espriu 2014 at the Palau de la Música. In 2015 she collaborated with La Fura dels Baus on a show premiered in Singapore. She was the opening act for Miguel Poveda, accompanied by Alfredo Lagos [es], at the International Music Festival of Cadaqués, and also at the 2016 Jerez Festival. She worked with Rocío Márquez [es] on the presentation of her album El Niño, produced by Raül Refree, at Primavera Sound 2015.

In 2016, Rosalía presented the album Los ángeles, a joint project with the producer and musician Raül Refree[2][3][4][5], which presents reworks of flamenco classics, receiving overall praise.

In 2018, after releasing three singles, Rosalía released her new project entitled El mal querer, written by her and co-produced with El Guincho, who would also participate in the composition of some songs. The album is presented as experimental and conceptual, revolving around a toxic relationship, inspired by the anonymous 14th century Occitan novel Flamenca.[6] On 30 May 2018 she released the first single of this second album, titled "Malamente". The second single, "Pienso en tu mirá", was released on 24 July 2018. Both videos acquired a certain level of social media virality, praising the aesthetics and the poetic symbolism in both of them.[7]
