Singer-songwriter Sara Ontaneda brings a new and refreshing aspect to alternative pop music using influences from her multicultural background, and other genres of music such as folk and R&B. Her previous album, “Entre Espacios y Colores” set the stage for her as she began performing festivals and shows internationally. Growing up in Florida, Sara Ontaneda got the chance to join her school choir and study the piano, while her love for music grew. After moving to Guayaquil, Ecuador, her passion developed as she continued to study music.
“Inutil” is Sara Ontaneda’s latest release, and after a first listen you will be blown away by the serenity to her vocals. Her tone and falsetto are reminiscent of indie pop artist Marina and the Diamonds, with excellent control and skill. The upbeat, cheerful background music balances out Sara’s soft and delicate voice, in a combination that will leave you wanting to listen for days on end. In “Inutil,” Sara sings about a painful breakup and re-entering a relationship that could do more harm than good. I’m sure most people can relate to this kind of heartbreak, where the feelings are still present, but it’s not worth it to get back together with the person. Using music to relay emotions and even worldwide problems such as domestic violence, her music touches people’s hearts. Sara Ontaneda’s meaningful and composed music has even led her to receive awards such as “Best World Music” from Richmond Film and Music Festival! We are so excited to see what music she releases throughout her career.
