Episode Summary

Soema Montenegro
Soema is a nerd. A magician. A wise woman. A child. A surrealistic poet. A healer. She can reproduce with her voice the sound of the cats when they are seeking for a lover and cooks the best chipás that I ever ate. Today I`m her live producer, the first time that I organized a concert for her I noticed that she was worried about trying to sing directly into the mic. During the soundcheck she remained still but when she went into the song, she closed her eyes, stepped back and sung loud and freely. Then she noticed the mic again and tryed to stay in front of it. I believe that the mic was turned on only for one whole song. With the sound operator we decided to turn it off for the rest of the show. She never knew about it. I filmed that concert and focused my eyes on her shapeless shadow, the movements of her hands, and her voice filling up the space. I thought about the beginning of the music, a cavern, a fire, a gathering. I started working with her as part of my work on Noseso Records, a small label of experimental music. Zelmar Garin, one of the founders of the label wanted Soema to record her music, but she had no interest on doing an album. They recorded it at Zelmar’s house. When I listened Uno Una Uno, the album, I immediately wanted to organize concerts for her. She sold 1000 records. Alone, far from the press and the big stages. Throughout our work we developed a close bond of friendship, based on our mutual nerdiness, our dark skin, love for cooking, making puns, changing the meaning of the words, we spend hours walking, talking about the language, methaphysics, feellings, and the way we are flowing trough life. She always has sparkles in the eyes and her smile shines as a full moon. Another shiny good friend, Stephan Eloise Gras, carried a bunch of Noseso Records albums to France and so Vincent Moon listened to Soema’s first record.
