Alejandra has a magical and positive energy which takes her all around the world with her music obtaining a very enthusiastic feedback from the people and musicians she met.
At the age of eight, led by her father, she entered the musical world. It was then that she started taking guitar, percussion and singing lessons at Conservatory Roma in Buenos Aires.
She was a member of The Beladies, a female band in which she played and sang numerous times in Argentina.

At the age of twenty-one she became a member of a female Country Trio directed by Gabriel Taborda and Angeles del Arcángel. Then she was singing some festivals with Fernando Goin, playing live and making a collaboration in his album.
After several performances, she participated in San Pedro Country Music Festival in 2005.
She took part in both national and international Country, Blues and Jazz concerts in “The Camarón and Langostino National Festival” in Ingeniero White, and in The First Blues Festival at the Colon Theatre in Punta Alta City, among others.

At the beginning of 2007, the NoRon Production Company made a videoclip of The Beatles “Tell me what you see” sung and recorded by Alejandra. This clip was the Winner as The Best VideoClip in FESAALP 2007 La Plata Audiovisual Art Festival.

Besides, Alejandra received the Néstor Francischelli Award, granted by Punta Alta City in the “Community Artists” category.
When she arrived at Palma de Mallorca, Spain in 2008, she started to play alone with just her guitar close to the Cathedral until some people found her and helped her to know some places where she could develop her music. There she used to play with her band formed by Ariel Burgos, Pep Estrada and Fabian Ivachich.

Alejandra started to play in many clubs on the local circuit and soon become a regular performer throughout Mallorca…her composed songs formed part of two solo albums “The Things I´ve Done” and “Travelling the World”. In 2009 she successfully ended her tour around Spain and at present she is on a tour not only around Spain but also other European countries (London, Germany, Switzerland and France). She was playing at 100Club, Oxford Street in London and in the South of France, she works together with the Act Event´s Company, with the production of video clips, concerts, events and festivals. And she used to play live with Sylvestre Etienne, Donatone Fabien, Julien Pierre and Julien Osty.

Alejandra’s music genre is Rock, Blues and Pop-Rock. Her style shows the influence of artists such as Etta James, Ruth Brown, Janis Martin, Elvis Presley, Janis Joplin, Brian Setzer, Melissa Etheridge, Susan Tedeschi, Bonnie Raitt, Beth Hart, Kiss, Aerosmith, Foo Fighters, and The Beatles, among others.

In 2012, Alejandra recorded the first album of Fyre! called “Missy Powerful”. Songs with a Hard Rock´s style mixing her bluesy voice with the Rock´s style of the guitar of Tolo Grimalt, the bass guitar of Lars Ratz and the drums of Sergi Vidal Tómas. (They were promoting their album on Tour during 2014 and 2015 with Anastacia, Alice Cooper and Michael Schenker.)
Then she formed a female band in Mallorca, called “ZONE SISTERS”( Nailé Sosa Aragón, Sabrina Burgos, Yudith Collazo). It is a pop-rock project with the objective to bring all the crazy girls full of charisma with a Rock & Roll soul who like to play music together to share and have fun!

So, let´s see what this 2017 brings!!! For sure a lot of new songs, new recordings, new videos and a lot of fun travelling the world!


SOME THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS
ON ALEJANDRA BURGOS

Whenever I listen to Alejandra Burgos and see her on any stage I am deeply moved by her "unique" voice, her talent, her energy and her passion for music, which she transmits in each of her songs.
She sings straight from her heart and gives the audience not only her voice but ALL OF HERSELF. She really feels what she sings and you can percieve that. This is one of her many merits.
She is so creative that even when she isn't singing her own songs, you may think they are hers because she gives each song a part of herself and sings it her own way.
One essential thing about great, creative and original talent is that it can't be copied, and I think that is what she has. That's why you can't either sing like Alejandra Burgos or compare her.
