24 Jan Flow Real TV Episode #7 – Constanza – Fire & Grace
Constanza Palavecino is a talented singer, dancer, actress and model, originally from Chile, South America.
Rare is to find such a combination of skills in one person. Rarer is to find an artist willing to put in the work to become better. Even rarer is an artist that can maintain grace despite obstacles and resistances encountered throughout the journey.
Constanza radiates those qualities with confidence and beauty. In the couple times we’ve hung out, I only felt pure authenticity and humility emanating from her – qualities often lacking in the entertainment industry.
Impressive is her fiery and graceful perseverance to achieve her dreams. Her latest music video and single, “Feelin’ Like It’s Hot”, will be released January 8th, 2016.
0:04 – Tone returns from a two month hiatus and gets vulnerable on why he disappeared during that time. He also gives a little preview on Constanza’s short and sweet interview.
6:00 – Raw and Real Intro. Plan B and Improvising.
8:09 – Her Journey from Chile & when her performing career started. Her curiosity led her to recording editing video and music the “old school” way back in the nineties.
9:40 – As long as she could remember, she always wanted to be an actress and little later, as a performer. The first public reaction to her work blew her mind and gave her confidence that she can touch people with her art.
10:42 – Her uncle passed away when she was 15 and she was asked by her mom to sing at his funeral. Was a shower singer and sang just for fun prior to that. Her only training at that point was singing in church while attending an all-girl catholic school.
13:30 – Received her first voice lessons. She had to choose between being an actress or being a singer at that time in Chile. While in music school in New York, she realized that something was missing.
15:26 – Was at a disadvantage starting music school so late compared to other kids that grew up in musical theatre. Overcame that challenge by fully immersing herself during that two-year conservatory education while barely sleeping. Love and passion gave her the devotional drive herself to learn rapidly.
17:10 – She had to take accent-reduction classes while in music school even though she knew English. Her insane work ethic came out of this period as she was extremely grateful for the opportunity, being that school was expensive and she felt lucky to be studying in the USA. She continues to hone her craft everyday.
18:20 – Talking about her flow state experiences. Getting in the Zone. Timeless, observer state as a performer. Flow amplification performing in front of crowds. Her own process of observing and listening to herself while studying and rehearsing. How we think we sound funny on recordings. This process is different when you’re in the moment of performing.
20:28 – The magical moments where time freezes after all the previous training and rehearsing have been put in. Oddly, she actually get nervous after a performance rather than the typical butterfly anxieties most people feel before a performance.
23:03 – Had many peak flow experiences during rehearsals, not necessarily during the performance. She in love with it all, the pre-, the actual and -post performances.
24:15 – Perfect Synchronicity and Signs of the Universe. Being aware enough to see and feel signs. Paying attention. Manifestation.
