Rosalia is a name that has taken the music world by storm – and that storm is heading to Indio, California for the 2023 edition of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Rosalía, 30, brings her Motomania experience to the Coachella stage and performed at the festival for the first time since her appearance in 2019. When you attend 2023 Notice board Women In Music event, she said Get access to Hollywood that it would be big. “I can’t say too much… It’s definitely not (going to be) a shy show. It’s not going to be an intimate show.”
Going big has been the name of Rosalía’s game since its release Motomami in March 2022. The album was described as her “most personal album to date” and received universal acclaim from music critics, resulting in it being the best-reviewed album of the year on Metacritic. It was a departure from the traditional flamenco sound that she used when establishing herself as an artist. “It feels rare to hear an album so experimental, striving to stretch across genres and play with form, and achieve exactly what it sets out to achieve,” wrote Julianne Escobedo Shepherd for Pitchfork. “Rosalía was already a formidable singer, but here she also sounds like she’s learned that with global superstardom comes freedom to set its own agenda.”
Rosalía performs on Saturdays, seemingly right before the headliners BLACK ROSE takes the stage. “I’m from Barcelona. Far, far away and it means so much to me and to my people to share this with you,” Rosalía told the crowd at Coachella 2019. She’s come a long way since then, so find out more about her.
She got her start in music on a Spanish TV show.
She was only 15 years old when she auditioned for the singing show Tú Sí Que Vales by singing a cover of Alicia Keys‘ “None.” Although she didn’t impress the judges enough to win the competition, the look got her face and vocals out there, and she continued to sing and hone her craft.
She will release her first album in 2017
Los Angeles was released on February 10 of the same year and contains songs inspired by traditional flamenco music. “With Los AngelesI wanted to establish my musical legacy…and honor the classic sound of flamenco, Rosalia added Jezebel in 2018. She also told Confused that “flamenco inspiration is above all the framework within which I compose my music.”
“I think (Motomami) the most personal and confessional album I’ve made to date,” she shared Rolling stone 2021. “I have always seen myself as a storyteller. Motomami is the most personal story I’ve told. In my head, Motomami makes sense as a concept, as a feminine figure building herself. So, that’s how it goes: It’s almost like a self-portrait when an artist makes a self-portrait in the context of the modern world.”
Rosalía has been on Saturday Night Live.
Rosalia also appeared SNL in February 2021 when she teamed up with Bad rabbit for the song “La Noche De Anoche”. The stunning performance, which included a neon-lit backdrop and plenty of serenading each other, received rave reviews and proved the beauty could take on live television at one of America’s biggest shows.

In March 2022, she also appeared as a musical guest, delivering renditions of “Chicken Teriyaki” and “La Fama”.
“I feel so grateful that I’m making the music that I feel comfortable making,” Rosalía told Entertainment Tonight in 2018. “I know that my music has risks. So if it connects with people, which I think it does , I feel very grateful. I can’t imagine anything better. As a songwriter, as a producer, not only as a musician, not only as an artist who goes on stage and sings, I feel proud. I feel happy.
She worked with Travis Scott & The Weeknd.
