Freshman Paloma Mariateigui is looking to bring Miami life to New Orleans through the release of her debut single, “Un Amor.”

“Un Amor,” is a fun electro dance song in “Spanglish,” as Mariateigui calls it. Mariateigui said that both languages have been impactful in her life, and music in English and Spanish is what interests her the most.

She said the song’s vibe is meant to encourage those that listen to have a good time and party.

“Sometimes you go through heartbreak, and you become so tired that you don’t even want to look for love. Like, I just want to go out with my friends, have a good time, and live my life,” Mariateigui said.

This single is just one aspect of Mariateigui’s musical journey. As a musical theater major, she also incorporates performance into her music. Mariateigui said that what led her to choose musical theater as her major is her upbringing and involvement in it from a young age.

“I’m really passionate about musical theater, and my parents told me it’s better to study something you are passionate about,” Mariateigui said.

Mariateigui believes that her time at Loyola has had a great impact on her music making process.

“I like having different influences in such a musical community. It’s not just people from musical theater, it’s people from the music industry, people who do hip hop and R&B, and so much more,” she said. “Being surrounded by all of that has definitely made me more confident in wanting to release music.”

As of right now, there are no plans set in stone, but Mariateigui has her sights set on releasing an EP in the future.

“Un Amor” is available now on all platforms under the name “Paloma Mar.”
