Delaporte is a Spanish and Italian electronic music band based in Madrid, created by Sandra Delaporte and Sergio Salvi. Both come from a strong background in Madrid’s funk, soul, R&B, and jazz scenes, and together they’ve decided to carve out their own path in the music world. The duo recently released their debut album this month titled, ‘Como Anoche.’
Diego Guerrero has always transcended Flamenco in his music. Not only as a singer but also a prolific musical producer, arranger, composer and guitarist. He iis one of the top references in the world when it comes to the fusion of Flamenco with other genres.His debut album, “Vengo Caminando”, is an eclectic work rooted in Flamenco, yet tastefully opens doors into other styles of music. Its release immediately achieved him status as one of the most important artists of the genre and received international recognition being nominated by prestigious Latin Grammy Awards in the category of “Best Flamenco Album”. After 60 concerts in Spain in the last 12 months, he is now preparing his first tour in the US, where he will perform at festivals in New York, Miami, Chicago and Austin.
Considered by many as one of the best guitarists in Spain, TWANGUERO invites all kinds of audiences to see and hear him perform, including guitar fans, entertainment fans, and people of all ages who enjoy great music. The “fire-breathing guitar hero” as he was dubbed by the U.S. press, launched his successful solo career after years of accompanying Latin music giants such as Bunbury, Calamaro, El Cigala, and others. His latest release, Electric Sunset, is his seventh studio album by the Spanish guitarist, singer, songwriter and record producer released in the fall of 2018.
Trajano! is a post-punk rock band from Madrid formed by Lois Brea (guitar and voice), Álvaro Naive (bass) and Carlos Mun (drums, box of rhythms). Their debut EP, “Terror en el Planetario”, was released independently in 2012 and received media praise. The band released their latest album, “Lázaro” last year In 2018 with the label Mushroom Pillow. With their 2nd full-length album they have become one of the most respected bands of the national panorama, in which the explore new sounds without leaving their personal Brand.
Baywaves are audio alchemists, able to draw on influences as disperse as the Psychemagik and Too Slow to Disco compilation series, beaming them through the filters of Brazilian rhythms, and more mainstream reference points such as Hall & Oates, to arrive at their signature sound. That sound is a mini solar system, where planets of funk, psych, pop, electronica and hip hop orbit a garage band set- up.
Pipo Romero is an acoustic guitarist and gifted composer from Cádiz, Spain. His first album “Folklórico” (2017 Sony Music) soared into the top ten of WMCE (World Music Charts Europe) and got him excellent reviews. Pipo Romero has been performing his music internationally to enthusiastic audiences and in 2018 October 19th he released his second Album “Ideario” (Universal Music). His compositions come from the heart blending an original compendium of styles (folk, flamenco, classical, country, celtic music, and many more folkloric influences from around the world) which blend seamlessly, creating Pipo’s unique and original sound.
