"I think it's time that women dare. We want bold women, "says the musician and actor Mario Duarte, which is part of the jury of Rockampeonato, a competition that arrives in Colombia and find the next star of the country rock.

Next week will be launched this event in Bogotá, an initiative launched in Mexico in 2006 to provide a space for those seeking themselves known through the rock and its subgenres. The call will be open from 10 until 31 October, with clusters period to register on the official website Rockampeonato.

Although the competition is open to men and women confess that jurors would love to find rock bands with female members. "Will no one Gwen Stefani here?" Says Mario, what Chucho responds that sure did, "there are many girls who would form their bands but are hidden and we hope to seize this opportunity."

Meanwhile, Julio says they want women because over the years have seen "girls do care about singing in tune. Males, usually put together a band and the singer is he who dares not always knows how to do it right or you are concerned. "

What is certain is that in the first stage of the competition they will not know the name of the band and how it is composed. Just going to hear a song and you will know if you have women members if female voices. "Clearly going to excel," concludes Chucho.

The semifinals will be in Bogota on November 16, Medellin and Cali 23 30. The final will be held in the capital on December 13 with the live performance of the four finalists, chosen by the public via SMS and jurors, and a recognized international grouping. The winner will be awarded recording their debut album and will be a special guest for the tour in 2013 Rockampeonato edition.
