MONTEVIDEO – Spanish singer-songwriter Rosana told EFE that she will give her all at Wednesday night’s concert at this capital’s National Auditorium, despite her recent knee surgery.
“I tore a meniscus from all the exercise I did and had surgery on it a week and a half ago,” the 54-year old performer said, adding that she started rehabilitation and physical therapy the day after the surgery and that she expects to be “1,000 percent” ready in “no time.”
“(Doctors) have told me: ‘If you have to jump, use your left leg’,” she said. “I don’t know if I will be able to heed their advice much, but I will try.”
Rosana said that she cannot “help but dancing,” describing it as a reflex to seeing her public having a good time at her shows.
“The most important project in my life now is going on this tour and giving people what they want every night, as well as getting people to leave as they have so far: equal parts smiling and sweating from all the dancing,” she said.
Montevideo is one of the many stops in this “huge” worldwide tour to promote her latest album “En la Memoria de la Piel” (In the Skin’s Memory), released in 2016.
“We have played more than 100 concerts in a year of touring and we are still at the half-way through,” she added, announcing that she still has “200 and some or 300 performances over a span of two and a half years.”
