Letra  “Flying free to love”

(Español)

 

“Volando libre para amar”

Libertad siento sin cesar, Libertad cuando puedo volar

Libertad es un reflejo de mis pensamientos,

Libertad comienza en mi y no fuera de mi

Libertad existes siempre en mi aunque no sea legal aquí 

Las aves cantan para unirnos y recordarnos esto.

 

Amar , para abrazar

Amar, para besar

Amar si sientes llorar

Amar si alegre estas

Amar sin juicios a ti

 

Amar sin nada que esperar

Amarme a mi

Amar a eso vine aquí

Amar es la solución para ser libre y volar.

 

Volar se siente así, sin peso ni ansiedad

Volar, como águila, Volar sin fronteras, siempre lo soñé, Volar sin rumbo ni un plan, sorpresas para mi y para ti.

Vuela, vuela eres libre, si, Libre de elegir, si, Libre de sentir, Libre de amarte, Libre de amarte, Libre de amarte.

 

(English)

"Flying free to love"

Freedom I feel incessantly, Freedom when I can fly

Freedom is a reflection of my thoughts,

Freedom begins in me and not outside of me

Freedom always exists in me even though it is not legal here

The birds sing to join us and remind us of this.

 

Love, to embrace

Love, to kiss

Love if you feel like crying

Love if cheerful

Love without judgment to you

Love with nothing to wait

Love me

Love, because I came here for that,

To love is the solution to be free and fly.

Flying feels like this, without weight or anxiety.

Fly, like an eagle, Fly without borders, I always dreamed it,

Fly without direction or a plan, surprises for me and for you.

Fly, fly you are free, yes, Free to choose, Yes, Free to feel, Free to love yourself, Free to love yourself, Free to love yourself.

I met this marvelous artist about a year ago, while he was playing the violin and I really got surprised about the wonderful things that I was listening and all the emotions I was feeling, and I’ve always been attached to music, but living the experience to hear David play the violin has been the most sensational sensations, it’s not only the pleasure to hear every single note, it’s the passion David shows in every show, every time I hear him play it feels like the very first time and I shudder but I always discover something different.

Definitely David Mendoza is one of the most talented humans I’ve ever met, it’s a huge honor to be able to enjoy the talent, passion, and the creativity he has. It’s amazing to feel the music in a different way. It’s great to have this kind of Mexican talents near us. When he performs you can tell the big commitment he has with the music, with his projects. Every genre he plays it shows the big effort that he has made over the years in his musical career, which will surely continue to grow thanks to that perseverance and love he has for music. We must continue being part of that support that he needs, be part of this growth… in each concert, each presentation, so that the marvelous talent that he has can continue to reach new ears and hearts over the world.

He has the power to wrap you with bright atmospheres of love with each note he makes with his violin, that sometimes turn into tears of joy, is just the big passion he has to perform his gorgeous music, or like Grammy nominee Michael Hoppè says about him: -Wonderfully expressive violin. Quite simply…One of the most beautiful sounds you can hear-.

I’m glad that I can see him live and enjoy a beautiful night with delightful music, a great conversation and the one of most delicious dinner in San Miguel. It’s an experience you will not regret!

For his next concert he will be sharing Motion picture soundtracks from classic movies like “Cinema Paradiso” by the Grammy winner Ennio Morricone, “Interstellar” from the Oscar winner Hans Zimmer as well as “Titanic” by Oscar winner James Horner and more. Beside the very talented Mexican pianist “Liliana Gutierrez”.

When I met David Mendoza, I was captivated by the amazing art and passion he gives and share with everyone who wants to listen, appreciate, and stand for an art so original and gorgeous itself. Seeing the overflowing talent of a person who loves music touches the spirit, transforms your energy, and turns it into brilliant colors, in unique sensations and fills you with emotions that you can’t describe, but surely you can feel, and it undoubtedly heals you, in some way your heart recognizes the sound and with your eyes closed it takes you to beautiful landscapes that you can only imagine, magical and mistic places.

David Mendoza surrenders to his passion and everything in front of, below and around his vibe disappears. He connects to the Universe along with his music and transforms the energy of the world. In these times when what we see, hear and feel is pain, music, his music will always be a medicine for the soul. A caress to the senses. In every genre he plays you can really feel de soul of the melody; and I must say, not all musicians can do this for you, only a few real artists can wrap you into the soul of the music… For a moment I was speechless, then I start thinking about what I dream of and then, to very finale of the concert I felt so much happiness and an energy I can’t describe, you just have the need to thank him for this amazing gift he just gave to you in his wonderful and captivating performance. I lived a magical night in the heart of Mexico thanks to his art and his talent and to close with a flourish this magical night, the Casa Rosada Hotel offers you a delicious dinner with the Mexican and very talented Daniel Salazar. I absolutely want to repeat this experience! Go and live it yourself !

David expresses his music like a bird singing, with a natural way, that heals every person in contact with his vivid melodies. With simple melodies, romantic chords, expressive rhythm and profound musical colors through his artistic performances. Or like the Grammy nominee says… -Wonderfully expressive violin... Simply, one of the most beautiful sounds you can hear.

For this beautiful concert he will share a musical genre that he knows the most… Tangos! Beside the Mexican talent Liliana Gutierrez at the piano, the incredible French accordionist Camille García as well as the great drummer Juan José Cerdeneta; This will take place at the beautiful patio in the important architectonic piece of San Miguel de Allende “Casa Rosada Hotel”. Tickets are available on Biblioteca Publica, Insurgentes #25, Centro, SMA, and at the Lobby of Casa Rosada Hotel.

Several years ago, my cousin and I discovered David Mendoza playing his violin around San Miguel de Allende. He was Gil Gutierrez`s violin player, the Mexican guitar virtuoso in town. The sound was mesmerizing, magnetic, beguiling. His lyrical strains played on in my head and heart between encounters. There was something undefinable about him and his playing that wraps you with just the first piece you hear.

Varieties of music have always been an energizing passion, an irresistible motivator, an urgent catalyst in my life. So, I was thrilled to follow this young man and his fiddle as played in restaurants around town. Every time we saw him, he just got better and better.

I have been captivated and enchanted by music—and lucky in both my deliberate and random encounters—from shepherding five children through the University of Texas Junior String Project for twelve years to bouncing at rousing Police concert, from happening upon a remarkable Texas fiddler playing in the mountains of Germany, to coming upon a Classical choral group performing in a historic church outside Schwabish Hall, from Opera in Milan, Italy, to house concerts in our family homes. Yet it is David’s violin that moves me the most. His powerful energy elevates me to another frequency level.

Once my cousins Debra & Charlie and a colleague Joseph heard David at Paprika where he was joined by his talented mother. We sat at their table and felt so lucky, so thrilled and inspired by the program of the evening where he plays his original music as well as new age music from European composers, it was just one of the most memorable moments of my life. David’s playing does for me a range of what Bo Diddley and Offenbach do.

For this concert he is going to have very special guests, people who teach him his first musical steps, I am talking about his blood family. Beside his parents Patricia Díaz, Arturo Mendoza, at the voice and his brother Arturo Mendoza Jr. at the Double Bass ,as well as David´s pianist Liliana Gutierrez, they will play one of the favorite genres in the world for people - Mexican and south American folk music- who is the first kind of music David learned and made him the big musician he is today. Music from amazing famous interpreters Like “Mercedes Sosa”, “Violeta Parra” and “Silvio Rodriguez” that makes this music one of the most deep and enjoyable genres over the world. This will take place in the gorgeous garden of “Tres Fuentes Hotel Boutique” at Baeza # 7, right next to the beautiful and biggest park in San Miguel de Allende Centro “Jardin Juarez”. Tickets available at Biblioteca Publica Insurgentes # 25.

Come discover what David does for you!

There are countless experiences, places and people that make San Miguel de Allende the unique and wonderful city that it is. Holding a place near the top of that long list must surely be the supremely talented young violin virtuoso, David Mendoza.

If music is the voice of the soul, then David is a messenger. Perhaps the one thing that sets him apart is the emotional connection he builds with the audience during his performances. His flawless technical skills draw you in, but it is his confidence, his energy, and the vibrant passion for his craft that holds you there. He gets lost in the music and invites you to join him.

Growing up in a family of musicians in Mexico City, David began playing violin when he was just 7 years old. At the age of 15 he earned a place at the prestigious National Conservatory of Music in Mexico City. Performed with some of the best musicians in San Miguel and collaborated with the Grammy nominated composer Michael Hoppè who has hailed David as “a wonderfully expressive violinist … it’s quite simply one of the most beautiful sounds one can hear”.

For this concert he will be playing his own musical language through his healing music, a kind of divine canalization where you’ll feel healed, as well as his own musical arrangements of the European music from the Italian composer Ludovico Einaudi who was trained at the Verdi Conservatory in Milan, all this beside the very talented Liliana Gutierrez Mexican pianist, and the amazing Mexican drummer Juan José Cerdeneta. David’s music is influenced by classic composers like Mozart and Beethoven, Impressionists like Debussy, and Ravel, as well as new classics like Ennio Morricone, Philip Glass and Steve Reich, without forgetting the amazing Australian/British World Music Band Dead Can Dance led by Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry as well as the alternative British Rock Band Radiohead.

If you have not had the pleasure and privilege of seeing David perform, now is your chance. He and his musical guests have a gorgeous new venue in the beautiful SMA Centro, at the beautiful patio in the important architectonic piece of San Miguel de Allende “Casa Rosada Hotel”. Not a big city concert hall, not a large capacity theater – but an intimate outdoor venue with comfortable seating for no more than 50 people.

Tickets are available on Biblioteca Publica, Insurgentes #25, Centro, SMA as well as in the Lobby of Hotel Casa Rosada. Ticket includes a special menu (main course and one drink) by the amazing chef Daniel Salazar. Dinner time at 6:30 pm Treat yourself and bring your friends. There may be no better way to spend an evening.

When I first encountered David Mendoza was about 4 years ago when I took my visiting friends to “Bistro Mi Casa” for the wonderful Gil Gutierrez band, where he was his violin player and we all 3 were like “WOW! who is that fantastic Violinist?!” We met his talent and I have been following David Mendoza ever since - at various places, I got surprised he is also an excellent percussionist, pianist and a wonderful composer; it is a complete journey to feel the colors and sensations that his music projects. I have heard him play a lot of his original compositions and I felt tears in my eyes every time I hear them live, it’s also a complete experience of love in every note he makes. I barely have words to describe how talented this man is, when he is performing the room fills up with so many emotions, like joy, happiness, love, and many more, sometimes indescribable; I’ve seen him sharing the stage with many talented musicians and it’s just magical how the music intensifies it’s feeling. Definitely he increases the sound of every band he plays in. I have bought his first album “Birds fly in” and I loved it! And his new album “Love in times of war” it’s just terrific!

No one else plays violin like him and definitely no one else in San Miguel de Allende plays the music he chooses for his concerts. His musical influences go from New Classics like Ludovico Einaudi, Hans Zimmer, Ennio Morricone to Rock like Led Zeppelin, Radiohead, Sigur-Ros and King Crimson, as well as Contemporary Jazz like Pat Metheny, Chick Corea, Ben Wendel, Tigran Hamasyan or minimal music like Steve Reich and Philip Glass and some gypsy violin players like Stephan Grappelli and Roby Lakatos. He thinks like an Absolut musician, thinking like a composer, director and performer at the same time. Or like the Grammy nominee Michael Hoppè says “Wonderfully expressive violin playing is…quite simply one of the most beautiful sounds one can hear”

For his next concert he will be sharing Motion picture soundtracks from classic movies like “Cinema Paradiso” by the Grammy winner Ennio Morricone, “Interstellar” from the Grammy winner Hans Zimmer as well as “Titanic” by Grammy winner James Horner. Beside the very talented “Liliana Gutierrez” Mexican pianist.

This will take place at the beautiful patio in the important architectonic piece of San Miguel de Allende “Casa Rosada Hotel” in Cuna de Allende # 12.

David Mendoza is an extremely talented human being, not only because of his extraordinary musical talent, but because of that love and intensity that he projects with his musical performance. It is so easy to get wrapped up in the sweet and vibrant music he makes, full of soft and energetic melodies, strong chords and enveloping rhythms that fills the soul with found emotions, that puts you in another world. Many of us cannot help crying between the marvelous pieces, getting excited like children and feeling our soul dance. Definitely an amazing, diverse and unique show that leaves every space and every corner vibrating by his marvelous talent. David Mendoza is a being that harbors such indescribable majesty that it is impossible not to notice it when he is on stage, you can perceive that he is in his element, like a bird in the air; he shares with you all his love and passion for everything he does… that apart from playing the violin wonderfully, he is an expressive on the piano and an intense on drums and a great creator as a composer; creativity, love, passion and intensity are what defines him as an artist, as honest as he is dedicated.

There is a truly unique gift on David, a very special one. A single man composing, playing the violin, piano, percussion and singing beautiful melodies for the same song is something that makes him understand music like no other and perform like just a few musicians in the world can do, likewise, seeing him share the stage with talented musicians and listening to his fusion of talents makes you shudder and get excited in a different way...

David has the peculiarity that, although you can perceive the complexity in his musical interpretation, he makes you feel the desire to take up the violin and run that bow as smoothly and delicately as only he knows how to do it. Clearly being in the presence of such a wonderful artist makes you see the world in a different way, at least for those moments ... if you already had the experience of listening to him, I'm sorry, there is no going back, you have only left the need to listen to artists as incredible as David Mendoza; and if you haven’t, you must, I promise you, you will not regret!

For his next concert he will share a musical genre that he knows the most… Tangos! Beside the Mexican talent Liliana Gutierrez at the piano, and the incredible French accordionist Camille García; This will take place at the beautiful patio in the important architectonic piece of San Miguel de Allende “Casa Rosada Hotel”. Ticket are available on Biblioteca Publica, Insurgentes #25, Centro, SMA.

David Mendoza presents “Love is everywhere concert”

Casa Rosada Hotel, Cuna de Allende # 12, San Miguel de Allende

Concert David Mendoza presents Love is everywhere concert. Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th, September 2021. Casa Rosada Hotel. Cuna de Allende #12 Centro. $500 Pesos

By Alberto Robledo Cervantes

The phenomenal and very well-loved violinist in San Miguel de Allende is going back to make amazing concerts as usual for his faithful audience; Since 2015 he was very well known for being Gil Gutierrez´s violinist, (one of the best guitar players in México) David made a fruitful career playing with all the best musicians in town., in 2018 he starts his own project, getting very good critics from San Miguel de Allende´s American, Canadian and Mexican people.

Beyond his understanding of music, David Mendoza understands the feeling. He knows how to reach them with a violin lunge, with notes placed in the places his heart asks. Listening to his music is a healing experience. Every note he plays tells you a story and they reveal a truth that is hidden from many, denied by others: that the beauty of the simplicity is what we need to heal this wounded world, eager for music and color.

David is really a complete musician, thirsty to discover the secrets of music that makes him vibrate to transmit it to people; a musician who seeks to grow and touch the sky with the people he plays for and with his friends. David knows that music is a shared path. His confidence on stage is really impressive. Being a multi-instrumentalist and composer, he has great knowledge about what happens on stage and a magnificent ear that helps him achieve his imagination; He is a guide who takes all musicians and the audience to new and bright places, in colors that can be seen and felt. Or as the Grammy nominee Michael Hoppè describes him, as an "incredibly expressive violinist."

For his next concert he will share his talent on stage with the amazing Mexican talented Liliana Gutierrez at the piano and the great drummer Juan José Cerdeneta. This trio is going to perform beautiful movie soundtracks from the greatest composers as Hans Zimmer, Ludovico Einaudi, Joe Hisaishi and Ennio Morricone. As well as David’s new album music. This concert is going to take place at “CASA ROSADA HOTEL” in Cuna de Allende #12, Centro. In their gorgeous patio, that is a very important piece of architecture in the history of San Miguel de Allende. Tickets will be available on “BIBLIOTECA PÚBLICA” Insurgentes # 25. If you haven´t heard him before, you cannot lose the chance to hear his gorgeous performance in one of the most beautiful places in the world.

David Mendoza presents “IT’S ALL ABOUT LOVE” concert

stageit.com, San Miguel de Allende

The remarkably talented David Mendoza has begun live-streaming concerts from San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. I was fortunate to experience the first one. Because we’d hooked our laptop to our large screen television, it was like being in the room with him. The visual and sound quality were both superb! David’s music, as always, was sublime.

Echoing the sentiments of so many who hear David perform, one audience member exclaimed, ‘David should be world famous!’ Certainly he has that potential but, up to now, his exposure has been limited to people who can travel to Mexico. Live-streaming now makes it possible for you to experience his soulful magic right now in your own home. In this time when so many are on edge due to Covid 19 and political unrest, David’s music can bring a lot of healing love to the world.” --

How I see the world, my work, my art. Como veo el mundo, mi trabajo, mi arte.  

                                                                                                                   (Español)

En un mundo en el que a menudo a la humanidad se le juzga por su color de piel, o la ropa que lleva puesta, o las costumbres religiosas o políticas, esto entorpece el núcleo de admirar y entender quien es la gente en si, por sus tradiciones, talentos, y valores únicos, con sus problemas cotidianos, y todo lo que conlleva ser un ser humano en la actualidad, para apreciar esto de la manera mas pura, la música y diversas artes en realidad sirven como catalizador y señuelo a la verdadera razón de ser y el verdadero existir de las almas humanas que vagan y enriquecen al mundo con su destello., mundo que por las luchas de egos se convierte en el infierno mismo para millones de habitantes, la música, el arte en si, ha sido, es y será siempre un documental, de el que pasa hoy y ahora, esa es la maravillosa labor de crear y compartir el arte. Creando una oportunidad para la gente de refleccionar, entender, perdonar, y seguir en nuestros caminos con un poco menos de peso en nuestras almas errantes. 

 

                                                                                                                     (English)   

In a world where humanity is often judged by its skin color, or the clothes it wears, or religious or political customs, this hinders the core of admiring and understanding who the people are, their traditions, talents, and unique values, with their daily problems, and all that entails being a human being today, to appreciate this in the purest way, music and diverse arts actually serve as a catalyst and lure to the the true reason for being and the true existence of the human souls that roam and enrich the world with its glimmer, a world that for egos struggles becomes hell itself for millions of inhabitants, music, art itself, has been, is and will always be a documentary, of what happens today and now, that is the wonderful work of creating and sharing art. Creating an opportunity for people to reflect, understand, forgive, and follow our paths with a little less weight in our wandering souls. This is how I feel the world, my work, my art.
