De Musica Ligera: Magical Marta

We've previously talked about Marta Gómez, the Colombian-born chanteuse whose music artfully blends folkloric sounds from her homeland with traditional melodies from other South American countries. She is best known for writing and interpreting "Mirame", the theme to the his Colombian telenovela "La Pola". But she will be performing in concert tonight in New York City as part of the release of her latest album, "El Corazon y El Sombrero" (The Heart and the Hat).

Aside from her marvelous music, Gómez also founded the Agua Dulce Foundation, which she claimed has the goal of creating "a better future for Latin American children and through them, their families and communities".

If you can please go and check her out tonight at Joe's Pub in Manhattan; otherwise, enjoy the following video clip of Gómez singing "Mirame" in Cartagena earlier this year:
