Seigar Recommends: “Cerrada” by Ladilla Rusa

Seigar, the photographer, is back.

Introducing here another Spanish act. This time I’m bringing you Ladilla Rusa, a couple of clever journalists who decided to sing and show their wittiness with their social criticism. Víctor Fernández and Tania Lozano use the same techno sound that everyone loves dancing to at discos right now in Spain, but they added some straight and simple lyrics/messages about social issues. It’s easy to sing and identify with, too.

After their first rumba hit “Macaulay Culkin”, “Cerrada” discusses a very serious matter treated with irony. It becomes a feminist disco anthem with a clear and direct message: “open to champagne, p*ssy closed, no is no, yes is yes”. It may seem like a silly song, but it isn’t. It tells society that women are the ones who decide what they want to do. This music could fit into the soundtracks of an early Almodóvar, it reminds me to his song “Suck it to me”.

Enjoy Cerrada, and try to remember the Spanish words:

“no es no, sí es sí, cerrada de amor, abierta al champagne, cerrada de p*ssy.”
