"DEL AMOR Y DEL JUEGO"
"Del amor y del juego" is my first album, made with the most humble and popular instrument of all, the harmonica! Some of these melodies were initially created for plays of the Teatro de Los Sentidos, there is waltz, boléro, blues or bossa nova, it is a small journey made of 12 themes and songs guided by the instrument of travelers. With Chico Ocaña, Joan Pau Cumellas or Francisco Guisado (Rubio) and many others ...
"Melocotón" is a bossa nova sung in French, about heartbreak and that carries the recipe for a dish that is usually eaten cold: the revenge! The video is made between Barcelona in black and white and Brazil in color.
"Vuela vuela" is an encounter between the bolero and the sounds of Naples. The voice of Aurora Arenare plays with the harangues of the street vendors of the volcano-city. You should dance it very close. "De hijos y padres" we created it with my son Artur, one day he was playing his guitar, bored as a teenager can be. "Du côté de chez soi" is a jazz song made with Fred Brousse, a great blues guitarist whose mother was my mother's sister. Between the creative maturity of the bluesman guitar and the deep and fragile security of a child's guitar
Those who have had the opportunity to see "Little exercises for a good death" of the Teatro de los Sentidos will have
listened to "Petits exercices", a song with the smell of a port at night. "Java de 9h15" is one of my first compositions, a Parisian java. Both are related by a game: How to treat the same melody in a different way. Petits exercices!
"Del amor y del juego" is mixed and produced by Tomás Arroyo (Tomasin)
and mastered by Yves Roussel.
