We Love Retro a fost evenimentul care, pentru o seara, a reusit sa reuneasca pe aceeasi scena din Bucuresti, cativa dintre cei mai importanti artisti dance ai anilor ’90.
SNAP au venit cu FORTA, un show electrizant, o Penny Ford ( solista principala a proiectului) intr-o conditie de zile mari si un look impecabil pt cei 54 de ani ai sai, si un Benjamin Lowe ( noul rapper al proiectului) sexy si impunator.
Ne-am intalnit cu Penny Ford in Bucuresti, inainte de concert, pentru un INTERVIU IN EXCLUSIVITATE , pe care va invitam sa il cititi in cele ce urmeaza!

La final un mesaj video adresat IN EXCLUSIVITATE cititorilor nostri, precum si fotografii din cadrul show-ului sustinut la Arenele Romane!

Hello, Snap, Hello Penny and welcome to Romania! How are you feeling about concerting here again? / Buna, Snap! Buna, Penny! Cum va simtiti sa concertati aici din nou?

I love Romania! Most of my friends in Germany are Romanian, so I am feeling great to be on your land. I have been here many times and I love it here! It’s awesome! / Iubesc Romania! Majoritatea prietenilor mei din Germania sunt romani si ma simt minunat sa fiu pe pamant romanesc. Am fost aici de multe ori si iubesc aceasta tara! Ma simt minunat!

How do you personally feel that you have evolved throughout all these years? / Cum simti ca ai evoluat personal de-a lungul tuturor acestor ani?

I have learnt so much about the world, I have received an education that you can’t buy in university and I’ve learnt to pace myself, because I’m getting older with doing this and it gets difficult to put up with. I am very happy with where the SNAP! brand is going right now. / Am invatat foarte multe despre lume, am primit o educatie pe care nu o poti acumula in universitate si am invatat sa ma infranez, pentru ca anii trec in aceasta industrie si devine dificil sa poti tine ritmul. Sunt foarte bucuroasa cu directia in care SNAP! se indreapta acum!

Your song “The power” has been an evergreen dance anthem from its release and until now. When you released this song, have you ever thought it would have such an impact over people? / Piesa voastra, “The power” a fost o piesa dance evergreen de la momentul lansarii sale si pana in prezent. Cand ati lansat acest single, v-ati gandit ca ar avea un asemenea impact asupra oamenilor?

No, none of us had. When I sang it, back in 90’s, I just thought it would be a studio session just like the others and nothing will happen. I don’t think that anyone could expect to have a song in their carreer that has a global impact that “The power”has had. It’s much a blessing. / Nu, nici unul dintre noi nu s-a gandit in modul asta. Cand am cantat aceasta piesa in anii ’90, am crezut ca va fi o sesiune de studio la fel ca toate celelalte si ca nu se va intampla nimic special. Nu cred ca vreun artist se poate astepta sa aiba un cantec in cariera sa care sa aiba impactul global pe care The power l-a avut. Este o binecuvantare.

Back to 90s, which were the most amazing moments lived during that period and what do you miss the most from those years? / Inapoi in anii 90, care au fost cele mai frumoase momente traite in acea perioada si ce va lipseste cel mai mult din acele vremuri?

I think that one of the most impactful things was one of the first things we did. We were the first band of our kind to play in East Germany before the war came down, for 350.000 people. It was an amazing concert and it was just when the people started to gain their freedom on the East side, so that was amazing, And, from those times I’ve missed a lot of things because I was moving so fast and I could not realize at that moment how big this song (“The power”) is. But I think that I miss being a bit younger (laughs). / Cred ca unul dintre cele mai de impact lucruri pentru noi a fost si unul din primele lucruri pe care le-am facut. Am fost prima trupa din stilul nostru muzical care a performat in Germania de Est inainte de izbucnirea razboiului, pentru 350.000 oameni. A fost un concert memorabil si a avut loc in momentul in care oamenii incepusera sa isi castige libertatea in zona de Est. Iar din acele vremuri am ratat multe pentru ca ma miscam atat de repede si nu am putut realiza la acel moment cat de urias era acest cantec ( “The power”). Dar cred ca imi lipseste sa fiu putin mai tanara ( rade).

How are you feeling back on stage? Do you consider continuing to be here? / Cum te simti inapoi pe scena? Ai in vedere o continuare a carierei tale?

Yes, I always say that I know that Tina Turner is retired, but as long as she will be able to get on the stage, I have no complaints. And as long as I continue to bring people happiness, like I am now, I will continue to do it. / Da, intotdeauna spun ca stiu ca Tina Turner s-a pensionat, dar atata vreme cat ea va putea sa se urce pe scena, nu ma voi plange. Si atat timp cat continuu sa aduc fericire oamenilor, asa cum o fac acum, voi continua sa fac lucrul asta.

In your opinion, music nowadays can and does have the same impact like back in the 90’s? / In opinia voastra, muzica de azi poate si are acelasi impact precum cea din anii ’90?

I don’t think so, and that is why we are still able to still tour and pack up arenas with 90’s music. People ask all the times if we make new music and I’m like, for what? People are still loving the old music, so we give the people what they want. / Nu cred, si acesta este motivul pentru care putem inca sa mergem in turnee si sa umplem arenele cu muzica anilor ’90. Oamenii ne intreaba mereu daca ne gandim sa compunem muzica noua, si le raspund, de ce? De vreme ce oamenii iubesc muzica veche, noi, artistii, le vom oferi ceea ce isi doresc.

Which do you consider to be the major differences between then and now? / Care consideri ca sunt principalele diferente intre atunci si acum?

Now it’s not so much about music, as it is about branding, marketing and advertising and promotion. So, I think what happened was that creative had a trainwreck with corporate. And that’s where we are now. And people feel music, so they go to see the music that bring them the most feelings. / Acum nu mai este vorba atat de mult despre muzica, cat este despre branduri, piata, publicitate si promovare. Deci, cred ca ceea ce s-a intamplat este ca partea creativa a intrat in coliziune cu partea corporativa. Si in punctul asta ne aflam acum. Iar oamenii simt muzica si merg sa vada muzica ce ii face sa simta cel mai mult.

What is the fact that your fans has never known about you until now? / Care este lucrul pe care fanii tai nu l-au stiut niciodata despre tine pana acum?

I love music from all different countries and my Romanian fans are all surprised to know that I like Salam & Guta (laughs)/ Iubesc muzica din diferite tari, iar fanii mei din Romania sunt surprinsi sa stie ca imi place muzica lui Salam si Guta ( rade).

Which is the biggest aim that you have now for the nearest future? / Care este cel mai mare obiectiv al tau pentru viitorul apropiat?

I plan to make the Snap show and the Snap brand bigger on the stage. And not be just a 90’s act, but to be a current act from the 90’s. / Intentionez sa fac show-ul si brandul Snap din ce in ce mai mare. Si sa nu fie doar un performance din anii 90, ci un performance actual. cu muzica anilor 90.

How do you see Snap in 10 years?/ Cum vezi proiectul Snap peste 10 ani?

I actually see Snap doing what are they doing now, because this is what people like, they like our songs from then. I think that most of the people who came to our concerts were teenagers then and they like to relive those days when things were great and they did not have any care in the world. I have not changed the show in 10 years, because if it is working, why fixing? Sometimes you fix it and break it. / Vad proiectul Snap facand exact ceea ce face acum, pentru ca asta place oamenilor, le plac piesele noastre de atunci. Cred ca majoritatea oamenilor care vin la concertele noastre erau adolescenti cand noi ne-am lansat si cred ca incearca sa retraiasca acele zile, cand lucrurile erau minunate si nu aveau nicio grija. Nu ne-am schimbat show-ul in 10 ani, pentru ca, daca functioneaza, de ce sa il schimbi? Uneori schimbi si distrugi lucrurile.
