Ana Sidel- Live @ House of Blues, Tuesday 3/9/04,

I'm sure that most of the audience was unprepared for the sight of ANA Sidel "the wild jungle woman," as she and her multi-cultural band took control of the House of Blues.

The single girls all wanted to be her; all the single guys just wanted her. The guys with dates were in agony, and their girlfriends jealous. All concerned reacted as if seeing an apparition at Fatima.

Meanwhile, ANA was singing to their unconscious minds with her seemingly quiet, sultry style, as she held them in a hypnotic state and toyed with them.

The set contained all the songs from her new CD "A SOLAS." Although her band played flawlessly, it was apparent to this seasoned reporter, that ANA is not only in a class of her own, but that everyone, including her band-members, clearly realized that this is a star shining so brightly for everyone present. Still, she got down on her hands and knees to get closer to her fans.

ANA Sidel's stage presence is that of a seasoned pro. This was her party and everyone was invited; and for those who showed up, she was being the consummate host, trying to make sure everyone was having as much fun as she was, and it was she, that was giving out gifts.

At some future date, many members of the audience will remember that they "saw ANA before she blew up so huge." The lucky ones left with CD's, souvenirs, and autographs from this remarkable lady: "The New DIVA of Rock Espanol."

Wait till ANA starts singing in English; at which time she is destined to be come "The Aboriginal Diva of Rock." Good thing Cher is retiring.

Look out world, ready or not: here comes ANA Sidel!

"Los Angeles en el País del Nunca Jamás"

Los Angeles en el País del Nunca Jamás

He visto tres mexicanas en tres dimensiones de Los Angeles que se cruzan para terminar el año en un jeroglífico del espectáculo que no tiene solución, y me agradó verlas a las tres, cada cual volando en su propia dirección.

Ana Sidel (Foto: Rafael Esparza)

Ellas son Ana, Cita y Ely. Tres letras, tres ángeles con alas muy distintas, tres magias diferentes en noviembre que ahora les cuento para despedir el año. Las dos primeras viven en las calles de la ciudad, la tercera (me recuerda nuestro fotógrafo Rafael) vive en el aeropuerto porque no ha parado de volar entre Londres, Chile, La Habana, Los Angeles y México.

La segunda sigue volando por el mundo subterráneo que domina como buen vampiro gitano del clan Román y la primera (en orden alfabético) es esta flaca maravillosa que "Chinga como loca", irreverente y Elástica como La Banda.

Vi a Ana Sidel cuando aterrizó en Los Angeles y encontró la mano musical de Giovanni Arriola que puso su voz al frente de L.A. Mixers para iniciarla en el rock local; aquella Cenicienta que servía las mesas del Avalon Theater y ahora lo estremece en escena con la acrobacia de una gacela urbana, que lo mismo se derrite sobre un piano que vuela entre coreografías de proscenio.

Ahora Ana (sin L.A. Mixers) se lanza como solista y derriba con el guitarrista Pascual los cánones latinoides de las producciones locales... "A Solas"... se llama, no en balde, su reciente producción con el bajo de Rojas y el calibre metalero de Tichi en el Key Club o el House of Blues.

Ana viene desde Armando Molina y su Máquina del Sonido y viaja más allá de si misma, con una promoción inteligente y local, para convertirse en mariposa bilingüe de las buenas noches que todos quisimos volar en el país del Nunca Jamás. Creo que esta mujer que canta, ya está encontrando su propio Peter Pan.

"Discos Destadados:"

Ana Sidel, ex integrante
de los L.A. Mixers, entrega
su autodefinido LAtino-
power-rock con una buena
dosis de sexismo en canciones como "Chinga Like A Loca", incluido en inglés como "Wild Jungle Woman" y "Déjate Caer" ambas con apasionados solos de guitarra interpretados por Robert Lankau y alternativos como "Fortuna" y "Sin Control", matizado con ligeros toques de electrónica. La balada rockera
"A Solas" es ademas incluida
en una versión remezclada
por Guillermo Pascual.
"A Solas..." es un disco
con actitud, extrovertido
de principio a fin.
