Elsa Barahona released her brand new single, ‘Enseñame’ on the 12 April. Produced by UK multi-platinum songwriter and producer Kiz Keyz, responsible also for producing artists with the likes of SVRCINA and Million Dollar Weekends, as well as his project Oceans for whom he also serves as writer and vocalist; gaining over 90 million streams for his single ‘Cold Ain’t for Me’.
‘Enseñame’ is the first single by Elsa Barahona that features a Spanish chorus. The words translating to ‘Teach Me’ tells the story of a young girl experiencing love for the first time. The innocence, uncertainty but the eagerness and excitement which tends to lead young hearts to fearlessly take that leap. She’s a deeply passionate and naturally beautiful girl, squeezing every drop of fun out of life, and it shines through in this song. With the opening xylophone acting as the representation of the fluttering heartbeat of the track, followed by the bass to stabilize the beat with synth and a playful vocal performance playing coy around the track. Falsetto notes which elevate the sound before the fierce Latin dance chorus brings the youthful spirit of the song to life. Her fierce energy is infectious.
Talking about her ‘Enseñame’ single, Elsa Barahona explained, “‘Enseñame’ is firstly a story of love. Forged with urban dance sounds and a Spanish twist for the world to enjoy as one, we wanted infectious beats, danceable motion and a hypnotic dance track with a Latin fire burning beneath it.”
