In THALIA’S MIXTAPE: EL SOUNDTRACK DE MI VIDA, Thalia, who also serves as creator and executive producer, takes the audience on a musical journey, uncovering the classics that inspired generations of artists and created the current Latin music landscape seen today. Through a combination of interviews, found footage and modern renditions of classic hits by today’s biggest stars, the series revisits the history of Latin music and uncovers the future of the genre in an intimate way not yet seen before.
“This has been my most personal project,” said Thalia. “Four years ago, the idea and concept of the mixtape of my life was born in my mind and heart. This docuseries goes through the songs that influenced my path, forging my destiny. I talk to my lifelong idols, the artists behind these legendary songs that marked entire generations with their music. In this series we delve into the stories and origins of these compositions, and as an absolute fan of these great artists, I have the honor of performing these musical gems with them. It’s an incomparable gift.”
“This has been a labor of love for Thalia,” says executive producer Tommy Mottola, “to relive and bring to life the music and the most popular songs of her teenage years, and to document and perform in the film with the original artists is a lifelong dream.”
“Collaborating with people you admire will always be a dream in whatever your line of work. THALIA’S MIXTAPE is the perfect blend of documentary and musical, yet another example of the timeless impact Thalia has had and continues to have on music and culture,” said Ntertain Studios executive producers Lex Borrero and Santiago Zapata.
