Soraya is a talented and compelling vocalist
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Beyond a distinct voice, Soraya has songs on themes that are dear to her. Her new album "Torre De Marfil" shows this, however her fist album is more compelling.To illustrate this, one just needs to look specifically at the song "En Esta Noche", written about her mother that passed away. Personally, Soraya has touched my heart by her song "Razon Para Creer". For nearly six years I had thought about becoming a priest for the Catholic Church. This year after graduating from college in 1996 and working 2 years for a Fortune 500 company, I resigned to follow my heart, and my faith. Through thought, reflection, prayer, and partly listening to the song, "Razon Para Creer", I found my true vocation. I am not awe-stricken by "stars", however, Soraya is one of three people I would like to meet to thank for making a positive impact people's life. The other two by the way are Jeremy Irons and John Malkovich. Soraya, keep up the good work!"
Soraya's inner vocies singing for her on this album
(4 out of 5 stars)
"After breifly listening to her first album "En esta noche" (On this Night), it is quite clear that she puts more passion into her latest album. From the simple song of "Si Te Vas" (If you go), to the more complez "Mi Dolor" (My Pain), she weaves her ideas and inner being into every song she sings. Her music is very reminiscent of Carole King, while her voice can mimick Celine Dion (smooth)or Dolores Ordian of the Cranberries (rough and changing). Throughout "Torre de Marfil" (Ivory Tower) one understands how much pain and sufferinf she has gone through. One also finds-Razon para creer- (A reason to believe) in themselves and fight for another chance in life; or for over coming personal loss. Viva Soraya (Long live Soraya)!!"
A real musical discovery!

"Firstly, Soraya has a beautiful voice. Secondly, her songs have an enchanting rhythm. And thirdly, the lyrics are beautiful in their melancholy. Discovering it by chance in Costa Rica, I am now completely addicted to this CD. Another reason to improve my behold of Spanish."
