One of my passions, other than languages, is music, so that’s exactly what today’s post is all about. I was thinking recently that I didn’t actually know a huge amount of music-related vocabulary, so I thought I’d learn some! Here’s some of what I found…

la letra – lyrics

la actuación – gig

el soloista – soloist

el dueto – duet

el cantautor – singer-songwriter

el escenario – stage

el altavoz – speaker

el concierto acústico – acoustic concert

And finally, here’s a phrase that I picked up:

¡Que empiece ya, que el público se va! – Hurry up, the audience is going to leave. (Often chanted when the start of a concert is delayed.)
