Raul Del Moral is a bilingual singer and talented guitarist whose genre influences include reggaeton, acoustic and folk. ‘Quedate Conmigo’ is definitely a club tune and is easy to dance to. The verses are sung in Spanish and the chorus in English, making it easy to remember. The accordion sound in the background is very distinctive. It’s definitely my favourite of his Spotify selection. Campeón is made up of guitars and trumpets and has a strong beat throughout. I loved the trumpet fadeout at the end. It was all in Spanish so I had no idea what the song was about but it sounded really good! The third solo song, Where is My Home? has a very different sound and feel. It tells a story about Del Moral unwillingly leaving his home and questioning where he now belongs in the world. The lyrics emphasize his feeling of displacement. The sprawling electric guitar solo that begins a couple of minutes into the seven minute song and lasts nearly as long as the remainder of the song is moving.
