Fresh, mature, deep, innovative, inspiring, heartfelt, enticing. These are some of the adjectives used to describe Giovanni's 'opera prima' in Guatemalan media after it's release. A fruit of years of voice training and musical education, this is the work of a true music passionate. Over the years, Giovanni has nurtured from many sources. He has been a classical music and opera lover since he was only a boy. However, having a very wide musical taste, he has also been inspired and influenced by other styles, notably the ones with Mediterranean roots, resulting in a different approach to contemporary latin music in Spanish. His classical voice training can be heard in his work, yet, it feels warm and accesible to all publics. The first single released from this album, the powerful ballad 'Hay un lugar' ('There is a place'), has had continuous airplay in contemporary-adult radios in different cities in Guatemala, El Salvador and Panama. The second and third singles were Me envenena and Después de mí, both having a good reception with the public and in radio airplay, as well. Giovanni continues his classical voice training with notable classical voice teacher Barbara Bickford in Guatemala City, as well as master classes with reputed teachers in Buenos Aires, Argentina and New York City. In the near future, Giovanni also plans to audition for main roles in opera productions in Guatemala and abroad. Also a second album is currently under preparation, programmed to be released in fall 2010.
