Miki

Miki was selected by both audience and jury as the Spain's representative at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest. He will perform the song 'La Venda' (The Blindfold), an infectious and festive number that stands out for its hybrid musical character.

Born in 1996 in Terrassa, Spain, Miki Núñez has learned a lot through practice, although he does not think of himself as a self-taught musician. Miki started studying music as a child because of his parents' dedication to providing him with instruments, even though his home was not particularly musical.

The musical training he had under his belt by the time he was in college helped him gain experience on various talent shows. With those skills, Miki carries an uplifting song like La Venda, with a critical and yet integrating twist, as a proposal for self-knowledge to value one's own gifts. After years of practice, the ardent and versatile performer can deliver an impressively wide musical range.

A musical landscape where Catalan rumba and Latin percussion flow together with warm horn arrangements is not foreign to Miki, given his time as frontman of the cover band Dalton Bang. The 6-piece band, formed of his high school best friends, was profoundly influenced by the booming mestizo Catalan scene, but also took inspiration from soul, ska, reggae and Latin pop. The band spent almost a decade on the roach delivering high energy performances that made the audience feel like they were attending a fiesta. When it was time to join Operación Triunfo, Miki proved he had what it takes!

Lyrics of La Venda

Te compran porque te vendes
Te vendes porque te sobras
Te pierdes porque hay camino
Te digo: hay otras cosas
Te sales porque te quieres
Te quieres, tu mente en forma
Te eliges porque hay camino
Te digo: hay otras cosas

La venda ya cayó y solo quedó la alegría
La venda ya cayó y empezaran nuevos días
La venda ya cayó avivando fantasías
La venda ya cayó y serás como querías

Te rezas porque confías
Te sientes que ya tenías
Te vives, alto voltaje
Te traje buenas noticias
Te vales y ya no fuerzas
Te vives y te interesas
Te saltas, no quedan normas
Ahora, la vida loca

La venda ya cayó y solo quedó la alegría
La venda ya cayó y empezarán nuevos días
La venda ya cayó avivando fantasías
La venda ya cayó y serás como querías

Lo que ere, lo que ere, ere, ere, e
Lo que ere, lo que ere, ere, ere, e
Lo que ere, lo que ere, ere, ere, e
Lo que ere, lo que ere, ere, ere, e
Lo que ere, lo que ere, ere, ere, e
Lo que ere, lo que ere, ere, ere, e

La venda ya cayó y solo quedó la alegría
La venda ya cayó y empezaran nuevos días
La venda ya cayó avivando fantasías
La venda ya cayó y serás como querías
They buy you because you are for sale
You are for sale because you are smug
You get lost because there are roads
I tell you: there is something else

You rock because you love yourself
You love yourself, your mind is in shape
You choose yourself because there are roads
I tell you: there is something else

The blindfold fell already and only joy remained
The blindfold fell already and new days will start
The blindfold fell already, stirring up fantasies
The blindfold fell already and you'll become what you wished

You pray to yourself because you trust in you
You feel like you already got it
You live yourself, high voltage
I brought you the good news

You rock but you ain't shoving
You live yourself and you got self-care
You skip yourself, no rules left
And now, la vida loca

The blindfold fell already and only joy remained
The blindfold fell already and new days will start
The blindfold fell already, stirring up fantasies
The blindfold fell already and you'll become what you wished

What you are, what you are, are, r
What you are, what you are, are, r
What you are, what you are, are, r
What you are, what you are, are, r
What you are, what you are, are, r
What you are, what you are, are, r
