Voice Teacher Reacts to Pedro Infante – Cien Años

Hi everyone. Andy Davis here again from
Master of Voice, a channel with reactions to performers from across the world. In
this episode, another reaction to Pedro Infante as he performs “Cien Anos” or “One Hundred
Years”. Let’s jump right in. Love the intro here just setting the
mood for us. His voice is like
velvet and playing the guitar. I love when someone can play and sing for
themselves. It’s just an added layer of musicality and it really takes a lot of
dexterity there, with your brain especially, having to sing – think about
the singing – (perform the singing) and then also do the playing. You all see it so much
that you really might not think about how truly difficult it is to play an
instrument and sing at the same time. I am so impressed with him. The first song
I reacted to and his voice just takes me right back there just in these first few
notes. Truly beautiful. Perfectly placed vowels. Let’s dive into an English translation
of the lyrics for just a moment, “On hundred years. You pass by my side very
indifferently, not even your eyes turned around to look at me.
I saw you but you didn’t see me. I talked to you but you didn’t hear me and all my
sadness drowned inside me.” I love the vibrato that comes into his
voice especially at the ends of some of the notes just showing us that he sings
truly free of any tension in the walls of his throat. But, the vowels – while they
do migrate around just a bit – are still just so perfectly placed. Flowing out of
him on such stellar breath control. His voice amazes me. I know my so many of you
love him so much and are huge fans. The lyrics go on to say, and I’m not sure if
we’re an exact sync with them, but they say, “my whole life
aches knowing that you forgot me thinking that not even disdain I deserve
from you.” He has such beautiful phrasing here.
Truly emoting the meaning of these lyrics. They finish out to say, “And
nevertheless, you are still attached to my existence and if I live on hundred years, one hundred
years I will think of you,” and then the lyrics go on to repeat. Such a stellar
talent he was. Wow. One hundred years… He has such a rich baritone quality to his
voice. I truly enjoy it. Just lush. This is truly
beautiful. What a gorgeous song with wonderful
lyrics and I just love the tone quality of his voice, as I mentioned, such a nice
baritone vocal sound there and you could just tell he was a wonderful performer.
This is truly impressive. How he let that note there. Let that vibrato creep in there. So beautifully done. And he let the dynamics
grow there and then pulled it back. That just shows that control there, a nice messa di voce, is the musical term. I love that
held note there he just let it flourish just a bit dynamically. Wow, I just love
this song. A nice scene for what I assume is a
movie here and he’s doing such a great job in the role that he’s portraying. But,
it’s the musicality of this song and his gorgeous voice that striking me so much
and just truly impressing me. What a phenomenal talent he was. Gorgeous. A truly beautiful song by a
stellar musician with a beautiful voice. I am so impressed with this. Thank you
all to those of you that were patient with me. You kept mentioning his name again and specifically this song and it’s
truly gorgeous. I now know why so many of you are fans of this particular song. I
hope you enjoyed this reaction. If you did, please click like and hit subscribe,
