Los Aurora at the Traquen'Art Festival in Montreal
Flamenco singing and dancing in tune with Jazz: this is what Los Aurora will offer as part of the World Music and Traditions Series of the “Traquen’Art Festival” in Montreal.
Los Aurora bring together a group of artists who emerged from the Higher Music Education School of Taller de Músics (Musicians’ Workshop) in Barcelona. The Barcelona quintet includes cantaor Pere Martínez, Max Villavecchia at the piano, Javi Garrabella on electric bass, Joan Carles Marí on drums and dancer Pol Jimenez.
Inspired by the great masters of Spanish music and poetry, the group is at the forefront of New Flamenco, combining the passion of Flamenco with the refinement of Jazz. Los Auroras reinterprets the most popular songs of Cádiz-born pianist Manuel de Falla (1874-1946) and his contemporaries Isaac Albéniz, Felip Pedrell, and poet Federico García Lorca.
