We had the good fortune of connecting with Vanessa Zamora and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Vanessa, what do you attribute your success to?

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I always knew I wanted to dedicate my life to art and specifically music. Somehow I knew exactly what to do and where to go. I trusted my intuition and ignored fear, even though it’s still there in many areas, but still trying to make it my best friend. Im proud of myself, on how i managed to make music, live from my passion and make music that I love and that it carries my most honest perspective on life. I’ve learned to believe in myself, to love myself, to trust myself and if you have that, you can acomplish anything.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
First coffee to a spot called Quentin, and then take a long walk around the city starting from roma/condesa, and then have breakfast at Lardo and if it’s crowded, i would try getting some tlacoyos, quesadillas or some delicious street food that we have in Mexico City, explore explore explore. Then enter some boutiques, vintage stores, La Lagunilla, second hand stuff and whatever we look at, very improvised, just explore explore explore. Grab bikes and ride until we get to another coffee shop at el Centro. Then go to El Parnita to eat and have some mezcales, then to a Cantina probably El Tenampa (Closed during COVID19:() , listen to good music, and to end the day: Go dancing to Bar San Luis. I don’t like planning when it comes to recreative stuff, things always magically happen. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
