The Extraordinary Show of Morat


Morat is a Colombian folk-pop band who started back in 2015. They formed in the country’s capital city, Bogota, with their first successful album “Sobre el amor y sus efectos secundarios” (About it’s love and its affection). The band is formed by Juan Pablo Isaza, and he the guitar and vocals, and Juan Pablo Villamil the banjo and vocals, and Simon Vargas the bass and choruses, and lastly Martin Vargas he the percussion and choruses. 

Today, the band has made 4 hit albums from 2018 “Balas Perdidas” (Lost Bullets),  2021 “ ¿A Donde Vamos?” (Where we go?)  and their newest release album “Si ayer fuera hoy” (If yesterday were today)  towards their biggest hit album it reached around 7 million listeners all around Latin America. Morat announced there 4th tour this year, and second time touring The United States. I had the chance to see them this year, and i’ll tell you my personal experience, and review towards this concert.

This concert was an amazing time, and the best experience I had out of all the concerts I’ve been to. They performed at The Toyota Music Factory in Irving, Texas. I’ve been a Morat fan since 2017, and I was so thrilled to find out they were going on tour in The United States. Firstly, the concert tickets prices were not that bad for being in front, and getting to see them close I spent somewhere around $230 to be in the front, and I saw more expensive tickets to be in front in the past. The concert was supposed to begin at 7:30 pm, but it didn’t begin until around 9 pm. Something that I didn’t like was waiting, but in general that’s what always happens in every concert. I really enjoyed how they started the show, surprising us out of nowhere, and I really enjoyed how they started playing songs from their oldest to newest, and surprising us in every song they played. I also like how for each song they explained the meaning, and a short story towards there song, and the reason they wrote the song. I also enjoyed the vibe of the crowd and their love toward the concert.

Overall, the best thing I enjoyed about the concert is the fact how they play as a group, and work as a team, and I really love their energy and passion towards music, especially Simon Vargas. He- the bass and chorus- really puts a lot of energy in music and dancing, but I really love every member of the group, and how they play and sing their parts. It was an amazing time, and it was one of the best nights I wish I could experience again. I will give this concert 5 out of 5 for their great performance and dedication.
