Eva Amaral and Juan Aguirre, the members of the Amaral duo, will be especially remembered at the Sonora de Ribera del Duero festival. There they performed on August 12 in front of more than 35,000 people, with whom they celebrated their musical journey and presented the first song from their new album.
At one point in the performance, Eva Amaral, before starting the next song, as a sign of support for Rocío Saiz, Zahara, Rigoberta and Bebe and all the women said: "Because no one can take away the dignity of our nakedness and our fortress” and immediately removed the top of the outfit she was wearing, exposing her breasts.
The vindictive act provoked shouts of emotion among the assistants. "Because there are too many of us and they will not be able to ignore the life that we want to inherit, where I am not afraid to say what I think," he assured, quoting part of the song "Revolución" that he was about to sing.
The words and act of Eva Amaral not only generated a flood of reactions among those attending the concert and the followers of the duo, but also among some celebrities. One of the most notorious reactions has been that of Damián Mollá, a collaborator of El Hormiguero, who commented on Twitter: "I am especially happy for the bald man from Amaral, who has finally been able to see them."
Another familiar face that Amaral's breasts did not leave indifferent was Isabel Rábago. The Galician journalist has recounted furiously in The summer program: “what right has she gained by showing her tits? I do not get it. We continue to have the same rights and obligations, nothing more." In addition, she added that "I would have missed that women with a public image, like her, would have taken out their breasts in the face of so many things that we have experienced in recent times."
An allegation that was later refuted by Pepe del Real, who was also present on the program, contextualizing Amaral's gesture. “She came to claim what happened at the LGTBIQ Pride party in Murcia with Rocío Sanz.
Even the Vice President of the Government, Yolanda Díaz, has commented on what she thought about Amaral's act of protest. She not only agrees with the singer's words, but she has also praised that she "has been a reference for women in our country for more than 20 years."
The act of showing Amaral's breasts has generated opinions of all kinds, both for and against what the singer wanted to defend. Some artists in the music sector, such as singer-songwriter José Manuel Soto, do not agree with the way in which she has had to transmit her message.
