The key could be in the teeth. A young Farrokh Bulsara (Tanzania, 1946) is rejected in the first instance by members of the Smile band – he has not yet been called Queen – because he was a mule. Ben Muelón. Or at least that's the premise that has the movie #Bohemian Rhapsody: the story of Freddie Mercury, released in Peru on November 1, which is the promotion of the fame of one of the most extraordinary vocalists that has existed on the Milky Way. Another would be the singing, literally, for guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor when they heard sing a few melodies of capella. They accepted it immediately. Mercury would argue that having four teeth in addition to the usual amount that most mortals possessed gave a resonance box that favored the power of their voice.

On this comment the director of Sons of the world, Mabela Martínez: "He has already passed away, his records have been studied, even through his imitators. Some have entered the artist's larynx to find out how he could do these stunts. The speed with which his vocal cords moved was also said to be driving a four-octave scale. On the other hand, he had a baritone record that was not spoken so much, because he was more recognized as a tenor. He was a man, of a messy talent ".
SOMEBODY TO LOVE

The first song popularized here was Do not Stop Me Now from the Jazz album. These radios recovered they began to pay attention to other pieces that had gone unnoticed, such as Bohemian … Then came to the top of the other rankings Another Bites the Dust and Crazy Little Thing Called Love. The fact that they came to Argentina and Brazil made them more popular, they brought them closer. Forming a hobby, "he says.
Salazar has all the albums and videos of the band and its predilection of the songs goes more for those that were not "burned" by the radio. "If anyone wants to get to know them fully, I suggest listening to their first three albums. Wonderful jewelry." His favorite song: Somebody to Love.
