Carolina Göttert

Singer - Spanish and English

Carolina Göttert on SoundBetter

I have more than 10 years of experience as a singer in Buenos Aires. I sing mostly in spanish with genres broad as ethnical music, lyrical, tango, latinamerican folk and pop-rock fusion. I'm vocalist of the World Music Ensamble "Kunturi". I'm also founder of Kordmusik as a movie soundtrack producer, where I have also sung in motion pictures.

The translation of a song is quite tricky.

First of all I will understand the metaphors and meaning of the song, it its own cultural background.

Then I will begin the translation of a song, respecting the meaning of the song although not necessarily literally, since I will be prioritizing to respect the rythmics, accentuation and articulations fully.

Many common phrases in english lyrics aren't what someone would say in spanish, so I will also consider that the translation works culturally to whom it's intended.
