In February, Sebastián Yatra kicked off his Dharma World Tour produced by Live Nation. Several stops are planned through December.
On Oct 8, Sebastián took his tour to the United Palace in New York. According to an audience member, fans from around the world watched the singer perform his biggest hits including "Robarte Un Beso." And yes, he managed to pull off four outfit changes during the show.
Throughout the tour, Sebastián will work with stylist Daniela Gutiérrez on an assortment of fashionable looks. "I get involved in the sense that I'm like, ‘I like this, I don't like this. I like this. Let's go in this direction,'" he told E! News. "I want to trust and have people that are great at what they do. I let them guide me as well. Obviously I have my taste in it, but it's a huge team effort and we're all motivated and happy with what we come up with."
Sebastián admits his outfit choices can help tell a story while on stage. As he explained, "I really like how all the moments are being portrayed with the clothes because in the end, the clothes are just a form of expression."
No matter where you see Sebastián live, the singer has one goal for concertgoers. "I hope that you live more than a show," he shared, "but an interactive experience in something where you feel and reflect and leave loving life just a little bit more than before you came inside."
Before taking the stage, Sebastián can be found backstage warming up his hands on the piano and guitar. "I'm also warming up my voice and my body with dancers," he added. "There are so many elements in this show that it's all about preparing everything with the team including a sound check before."
After meeting with fans before the show, Sebastián makes it a priority to enjoy a few minutes to himself. "I try to have 15 minutes to myself just to not think about anything, just prepare for all that energy that I'm going to receive," he said. "It's a beautiful experience."
How does an artist relax in the middle of a jam-packed tour schedule? Sebastián has some ideas. "A way that I unwind is yoga. Meditation helps me out. I started zooming with a psychologist five or six months ago and that helped me out a lot," he said. "Reading, staying in touch with family and the people I love and just being honest with myself."
Throughout the tour, Sebastián hopes to follow a certain mindset. "I used to go after my dreams and chase after my dreams, but that never helped me because my dreams aren't here with me," he explained. "They are so far away. It's like anticipating happiness or anticipating what I'm going to want in the future. I know what I love and what direction I want to go towards but I'm following my heart. My heart's with me right here and it helps me stay present and it helps me enjoy what's happening right now in this very moment."
