“The health crisis that we have been experiencing served me to ask myself, “Who am I as a human being and as an artist? It has been of such magnitude that we have planted many questions that we have not asked before”.
With this reflection Techy Fatule starts the interview with Efe and continues with force: “With the pandemic I lost my abuelo, my vital referent”. Pause and go. “I was a man who was very humanly rich, I always lived for what I needed”. But that same process of losing it… it inspired. That also led to asking a lot of other things.
— What can you tell us about your abuelo?
— He was national deputy and director of CEAR, (Consejo Estatal del Azucar of the Dominican Republic), a good person, very rich in love and who opened my eyes. I decided: ‘what am I going to do with everything I have, I have health care, work…..but other people can’t be allowed to go to a hospital`. The magnitude of the pandemic in hizo revolvernos throughout.

— Juan Luis Guerra, Juanes, ….. muchos grandes han enseñado. When I was 7 years old, they gave me a casette by Laura Pausini and loved me as a sonaba, with her lyrics. Y wanted to be like her. I admire her, I love her music.
But I also see that the bigger an artist is, the less ego he has. Because I believe that the artists are indebted to the others, and that we have to help those who are empezando, those who are down and, in my case, the women.
— ¿Con quién cuenta, who would stand out in their career?.
— My priest was a great inspiration for me. When I finish a song, I send it to him, who comments to me, and yo las suyas. We form a good team.
In 1997 he had his great opportunity when he stars in ‘Alicia in the country of the wonders’ in a children’s musical format and after that he participated in other musicals, including those of ‘Jesucristo Superstar’ and ‘Evita’, and even La Bella in the classic ‘La Bella y la Bestia’.

However, from then on, Techy focuses her talent on her facet of singer and songwriter. Son años muy important to Techy. In 2011 her husband, David, is married, and the next year she is born her husband, Dylan.

— In the performances or tours around the USA it is easier to reconcile with my family, with my child, and I may not be there for many days. I have the right to live in “the center of the world”, because since Santo Domingo I have been surrounded by everything, on top of that I am surrounded by trustworthy people who will remember me, if that happens.
