Maria Tecce: Strapless - One4Review
Maria Tecce has all the seductive qualities of sophistication and sensuality but there is much, much more to her performance. She has a fabulous voice, complete stage presence, and, boy, can she put across a song.
Her set contains a variety of songs based around the emotions of desire and love. There are the songs in Spanish with Latin rhythms. We may not understand the lyrics but she sings with such ferocious intensity, we know that this is a woman not to mess around with. When she performs the songs with a jazzy, bluesy feel every languid movement has a meaning. For some lucky guy sitting at the front, the song ‘What Lola wants, Lola gets’ will be especially enjoyable. Her performance of ‘Nature Boy’ was especially dramatic, being on her knees and absolutely still.
From her first entrance to her final exit, she captures and holds the audience’s attention A little confession: after her show, I did buy her CD.
