Juan Erena, LUZ DE FUNCHAL
for solo guitar
“Luz de Funchal”, was a surprising, wonderful 26th birthday gift and it instantly touched my heart and got my attention: first because of the beautiful cover and second, due to the title: the light of Funchal. Madeira is my beautiful hometown. It is where I grew up, where I gather the most cherished memories, is where I started playing the guitar and where my heart will always be.
No one gets indifferent to the “pearl of the Atlantic”. But why is it so unique? It isn’t only the people, the weather, the ocean or the food. It is more than that: it is the warm sun touching your skin and the people touching your heart, the smell of the ocean, the vibrant colours of the amazing flowers and the smell of the exotic fruits; it is the sun rising brightly every day: it is love, it is comfort…it is light!
By only playing the very first bars of this piece I knew already that, with his music, Juan captured the essence of the astonishing place that I proudly call home.
