We are serving up a number of great composers this week and would love to express that their stories have touched us here at ISINA.
We all go through that moment in life where we thought we were going somewhere with our lives but suddenly it just stops because you were not supported or got mixed up with the wrong crowd. The story of Chela Rivas is similar to that.
At a very young age she wrote songs about wanting a pet and from there she grew up and began to write songs to express herself and in time she got positive feedback from people. She received encouragement which led her to pursue a career in song writing.
That she did and went to Berklee College of Music for a summer program and from there her skills improved tremendously. Just as when Electric Dance Music (EDM) started to grow in 2009 she experimented her pop music with dance and electronic and she achieved a milestone from that day onward.
Her songs spread across the dance floor all over Mexico and slowly it spread to the United States, South America and Europe. She was the opening act for Dash Berlin, Tiesto and Edward Maya. She even signed with Sony Music of Mexico.
Many would think she is off to a great start but unfortunately she did not get the respect and support from her label and not only that, the government is chaotic due to the war of drug cartels and it gets dangerous there each day. She travels to quiet cities to sing at nightclubs but she knows she can do better which is why she applied to ISINA.
