The dancer and composer Davi Lorenzo enters the MOBS community with the illusion of collaborating by making personalized videos and writing messages that capture people's hearts.


Davi Lorenzo has a clear objective in his artistic career: to continue learning. Dance and music have been two forms of expression that have accompanied her since she was very young and have led her to work with international celebrities. Ricky Martin, Shakira, Jenifer López, Chris Brown, Maria Carey, Usher and Gwen Stefani are the artists with whom Davi Lorenzo has shared the stage during the course of his professional career.

Davi Lorenzo comes from Murcia and has been living in Los Angeles for thirteen years, where he is currently developing his artistic career. She spent no less than five years in Paris studying different styles of dance and touring and auditioning.

When she decided to cross the pond, this woman from Murcia set her expectations on continuing to train and carry out dance projects with other artists, to the point of working as a dancer with world-renowned singers.

Davi Lorenzo also worked for four years at the Cirque du Soleil and this was an experience for her that would mark her as an artist. In addition, he has performed in renowned theaters such as the Chinese Theater in Hollywood or the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

And do you want to know the latest news about Davi? WELL, HE IS ALREADY PART OF MOBS!


FROM PARIS TO LOS ANGELES

What I wanted was to be prepared to be able to work with any choreographer and be up to the task.

Q: Hi Davi, welcome to MOBS! You are a singer, songwriter and dancer with a long history, what led you to opt for the artistic branch?

A: Since I was very little I attended ballet and music classes because I liked it, nobody forced me. I have always taken dance, music and my studies forward, but over the years I had to opt for dance because I couldn't cover everything. I have always loved dancing, singing and acting. I even used to spend hours in my room acting in front of the mirror when I was little (laughs).

Q: What did it mean for you to have studied dance in Paris? Why that city?

A: Paris has a great level of dance and is one of the most recognized cities in Europe in this artistic branch. I went with the idea of ​​learning hip-hop and all its styles, since I came from flamenco and wanted to try new styles . So I decided that Paris would be a good place to train.

Q: What was it that led you then to cross the pond?

A: I wanted to continue evolving as an artist, so I made the decision to move to Los Angeles because it was a big city where I could find interesting projects . There I met a small circle of people who helped me a lot, but I also had to go on a lot of adventures: I went alone, I had to arrange a lot of paperwork with the lawyers, the visa... It wasn't easy at first, but at that time I had very clear what she wanted and she was very motivated.

Q: On an artistic level, did you find any difficulties in Los Angeles?

A: Not many. What I wanted was to be quite prepared to be able to work with any choreographer and be up to the task. I remember that what was most difficult for me was appearing to be a “Hollywood woman” with a “here I am” presence, because I had to force myself to be someone I was not.

RYCKY MARTIN AND THE CIRCUS OF THE SUN

Each experience with a certain artist or project was important to me.

Q: As a dancer in the US, you have shared the stage with celebrities such as Ricky Martin, Jennifer López, Shakira, Chris Brown, Maria Carey, Usher and Gwen Stefani. What have these collaborations meant for your professional career?

A: They have meant my entire artistic career because you work at a very serious level. This year I was on tour with Ricky Martin until the end of March, when the pandemic started. Working with these artists made me develop many skills on stage, since the choreographer did not give us everything "chewed" and I had to be a quick learner . Each experience with a certain artist or project was important to me.

Q: Your steps as a dancer also took you to none other than the Cirque du Soleil in the show “Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour”. What did you take away from that experience?

A: This has been one of the most important jobs I've ever done. What marked me the most was the family atmosphere that existed among the artists and there was always a group of people who did not stop creating, even if we had one or two shows that same day. In addition, I collaborated on other artists' projects and we helped each other to keep going. That 's where I resumed music . It was one of the best experiences I've ever had.

Q: Did you ever feel that you couldn't cover so much?

A: Yes. In the case of Cirque du Soleil, there were many hours of rehearsal, of tests... I couldn't see the end! I was physically and mentally tired because sometimes I thought that I was not going to be able to live up to what they asked of me. There were times when we had two shows a day for two hours each for a week. The dancers were almost always on stage, so it was a very tough show. Although I always ended up drawing strength and surpassing myself.

Q: As a singer-songwriter, do you work only as a solo artist or do you also collaborate with other artists?

A: I collaborated for a couple of years with the electronic group Tao of Sound and now I've also just collaborated with DJ Bodhi Satva on a song that will be out at the end of September called “De Nadie”, to which I put lyrics and a melody. I am open to collaborations because I think I will learn a lot. It's a challenge.

"ONE ONE"

It's been more than a year since I released videos with my songs and this is very important to me.

Q: Do you currently have a project in hand?

A: Yes. I just recorded a song and I'm preparing the video. It had been more than a year since I made videos with my songs and this is very important to me because I like the visual and being creative . This song is called “one-one” and it is under construction, I will release it in October.

Q: Do you plan to return to Spain one day?

A: I would love to go back and work in Spain because I have been in Los Angeles for many years. I would like to go there with a purpose and a job, perhaps spending time living between Los Angeles and Spain.

Q: What do you think you can bring to MOBS as an artist?

A: My personal style as a composer and writer. Each artist has their own style and I can bring that to Mobs when writing and sending messages for custom videos.
