Xiomara Laugart reviewed in El Nuevo Herald, Miami
Xiomara Laugart: Poetic Justice
By Norma Niurka, El Nuevo Herald, Miami
(Partial Translation from Spanish)
There was a thunder of laughs and applause, together with tears due to the remembrance of past times, last Saturday night at the Miami-Dade County Auditorium, when the powerful and warm voice of Xiomara Laugart interpreted themes of composers of the new and latest Cuban Verse, before a public that was as moved as she was.
It was not only her first soloist concert in Miami, but also her first concert since she arrived in the United States ten years ago and went to live in New York, where she joined the group "Yerba Buena".
Accompanied by this group of seven gifted and enthusiastic Cuban musicians from Miami, and also by her son, Axel Tosca, piano player and composer, the so called "Voice of Cuba" toured, with grace and sensuality, the expected repertory of “trobadour” themes, "boleros", “feeling” and "sones".
Songs like "Fe" (Faith), "Se fue" (He left), and La llave, (The key), satisfied her fan's nostalgia, who miss the times when the singer performed themes of Pablo Milanes, Silvio Rodriguez, Alberto Tosca and Juan Formell, while introducing other authors through their interpretations.
The singer; in a long, low cut, neckline dress, as low in the back as in the front, with her big afro held by a hair band, with very little makeup, gave herself to her fans in a likeable spontaneous and intense way, always connecting with the public.
