In Their Own Words: Miratti


Editor’s note: Are you a solo performer or in a band? Friends of a band? Do you manage a music act? If so, contact carl@dailymusicbreak.com to discuss posting a video such as the one above. Miratti is the first of what I hope will be a steady stream of young and upcoming artists to use The Daily Music Break as a platform.

Miratti – which means “In the Target” – was formed in 2010 in Kansas City. The members of the pop, dance, Latin and crossover band are Monica, Raul, Manny and Claudia. The band writes its own music in Spanish and English.

The band is fourth on the Latin House Charts in the Latinos Unidos Record Pool for November and December, according to Nelson Martinez, the CEO of Trigga Entertainment. Trigga is the band’s record label.

Martinez said that the group has opened for Pitbull, Enrique Iglesias and others. It is actively promoting the single “La Noche Provoca” and working on its next album with producers such as DJ Cubanito and Klubjumpers.

More information can be found at the group’s Facebook page.

Reading Music

The stories of the great bands and musicians are fascinating. Musicians as a group are brilliant, but often troubled. The combination of creativity and drama makes for great reading.

Here are some books to check out.

Duke Ellington brought class, sophistication and style to jazz which, until that point, was proudly unpolished and raucous. His story is profound. The author, Terry Teachout, also wrote "Pops," the acclaimed bio of Louis Armstrong. Click here or on the image.


What else is there to say? Here is the story behind every song written by The Beatles. Click here or on the image.


The Grateful Dead don't get enough credit for the profound nature of its lyrics. Many of the band's songs are driven by a deep and literate Americana ("I'm Uncle Sam/That's who I am/Been hidin' out/In a rock and roll band" and "Majordomo Billy Bojangles/Sit down and have a drink with me/What's this about Alabama/Keeps comin' back to me?").

David Dodd's exhaustive study tells the story, song by song. Click here or on the image.
