Yuridia in Costa Rica

November 27, 2009

Excited to return to the first country outside of Mexico where she appeared, smiling and desirous of further exploiting her stay in Costa Rica, singer Yuridia spoke to a national newspaper about the reasons that brought her to Costa Rica.

She made allusion to her new recording titled “Nada es color de rosa” (Nothing is rosy), and her new facet as a mother and woman.

The interview went something like this:

What are your expectations?
I hope to get to know the country a bit more because last time I went to the hotel where the show took place and that was it.  I am happy that I can spend more time here and talk about my record.

What memories do you have?
Costa Rica left its mark in Yuridia’s history.  It was my first time outside Mexico and the truth is that I was very scared.  I did not know that they listened to my music here.  I was fantastic.

What makes this record different?
It’s my second album with original recordings.  It was released a month ago and it is the most personal recording I have done.  It talks a lot about what I have experienced in the past two years and what I want my life to be in the future.  I think the people will be able to identify with it.

What has public response been like?

It has been very good.  We already have a gold record with the song “Irremediable” (Hopeless).  It makes me very happy.

When can we see you in concert?

It would be incredible, but no have been set so I don’t worry about it (she laughs).  For now, I’m on tour in Mexico and the U.S…. once I leave here.

How much has the Yuridia how left “La Academia” (The Academy) to the woman we see today?  Well, I have lived through many important things since I left The Academy.  Now I understand things better and I learned things that I did not know before.  I appreciate time with my family, friends and even being alone.

How are you doing as a mom?  I am doing very well, happy.  Phoenix, my son, just turned three.

How far can an artist stand the siege by the press like it happens in Mexico?  It was hard.  At first, it was quite difficult, but it’s been several years and I have managed to draw my line in the sand and set a limit.  I think we learned to get along and be calm.
