At the end of 2019, having studied at Berklee College of Music, one of the best music schools in the world, Nicole Zignago He returned to Peru to rediscover his origins, to sing again at La Estación de Barranco, the stage where he made his debut as a singer and the applause—he assured—is “warm and sincere”. Following that strong experience, she traveled to Mexico, where she signed with the Warner Music Mexico record label and composed her first international hit, “1,2,3” (Sofia Reyes ft. Jason Derulo & Delageto). Currently, he is in Lima promoting his debut EP, “Ec me siento hoy”, and his new single, “7 Letras”.
The video clip of the new musical proposal by Zignago Moro was produced by director Jose Lupercio and filmed in the park. Desert of Lions in Mexico City.
,,7 characters’ It talks about the moment you receive a message in which they tell you: ‘Call me’, and you realize that this person is going to end you, that something is about to happen, because ‘ call me’ is never good“, nodded.
– At what point in your life did you write this song? What is it inspired by?
On an ex with whom I broke up. I put myself in his place when I wrote the song, I told the story from the point of view, when he told me that we should try again, that we have to be together.
—”7 Letras” is the second of three songs that review the different stages of falling in love. The first, “I like that I like you”, is an affirmation of love. What will the third talk about?
This is the next single, I haven’t announced a date yet, it’s a collaboration with someone I love dearly. It is also part of the EP “Today I Feel Like This”. This is the essence of the cycle of love, falling in love, breaking your heart, and finally finding yourself in love again.
— When did you decide to dedicate your life to music?
I had that strong desire from a very young age, but I think it was only when I was 17 that I realized I really wanted to do it because it came naturally to me. I was surrounded by music all the time and when I sang and uploaded covers to Instagram, people told me I sang beautifully, we connected, which inspired me to continue to take music seriously. I moved to Los Angeles with my family when I turned 18, then I studied at Berklee and released my own music… which follows, which is Disc.
– When does the album come out? How many songs will there be in it?
It’s probably going to come out in the first quarter of next year and I don’t know how many songs there will be yet, but more than ten or twelve, I think fourteen.
—was there a break point before you began to shine with your own light?
Not so much bankruptcy, but suspicion, as we all have when we decide to dedicate ourselves to something. Meeting the brightest people at Berklee University has prepared me tremendously for the industry because there is always going to be someone as talented as or more than you. We should always compare ourselves with ourselves, not with others and if there is comparison then they should learn from the other person, not bring us down.
— Gian Marco assures you that you have overcome it and that you will continue to overcome it artistically. Do you agree with him?
No, because our paths are completely different and there is an age difference of 25 years (Nicole is 26, Gian Marco is 51); but the time will come when it will be [conocido como] Nicole’s father. That’s what’s going to happen.
– He also said that you are his “continuity”, the day he decides to retire from the stage, he will leave his place for you. How do you get their words?
With great respect and honor, because beyond being an incredible father, I admire him immensely as a professional. His words fill me with emotion and inspire me to keep doing what I want to achieve, which is to reach as many people as possible.
—and he’s proud of the “eternal” love he sees in you, not only of your artistic development, but also of your relationship with Fernanda Pina.
My dad always tells me that I have shown him that loving someone, no matter which way you choose, will never go wrong. I love being 16 years old looking like me, looking like me, singing what I sing, and seeing what I say.
—And how do you view your father’s romance with Juliana Molina?
all very well. My dad and my mom are both happy, each in their own right, and all is well.
—In 2015 you started out as a singer at La Estación de Barranco, just like your father did, and a few days earlier, like your brother. What does that scenario represent for you?
It’s very emotional because I’ve been running between its tables and chairs since I was little. The first time I sold one of my shows was at La Estación; But before, when I was 14, a friend from school invited me to play in a pop and rock night at that place, I still hold the ticket because many names came up including mine. Its a super good value. Today, already grown up, I came back and did four’sold out, It was exciting to return to the place where I was born.
—How was the experience of singing on the show on your father’s 30th birthday?
Being in front of about 50,000 people, and playing my music with Sofia Reyes and Marco Mars was incredible. It was nice to share my songs with my dad’s audience and also to meet me.
—What do you think about the work your brother Fabian is doing? Do you think he has a future as a singer and songwriter?
I wish him all the success in the world because he is a brilliant musician and a great artist, he has a great voice. I am very proud of him because he was the one who asked my dad to open the show, although he was explained that he would have to stand in front of 50,000 people with only one guitarist and one drummer. I take off my hat because this is the third time he has played live in his life, moreover he is a great man, he is a bread, he is divine, he is stable. I am sure it will go well.
– Why did you say that it is not easy to be a Latin and gay woman in music? Did you find constraints in that sense?
I think being a woman in life in general, beyond the industry, is complicated. I said this because I’ve only ever been in a studio with multiple men and I had to raise my voice to be heard, and that’s wrong.
—At 23 you managed to write your first international hit, “1,2,3” by Sofia Reyes. What other goals are you pursuing?
What I want the most right now is to release my album, I’m dying to play here, in my country, in Peru, to do a concert with my music, to do sold out, Later, in the long term, I would like to win a Grammy.
