Magalí Sare i Manel Fortià

_DSC21832018arturgavalda.jpg Un duet encisador, fresc i original

Magalí Sare i Manel Fortià s’uneixen per transmetre la seva particular forma d’entendre la improvisació i la interacció dalt l’escenari a través d’un format tan petit i despullat. Veu i contrabaix es fusionen de manera orgànica i, juntament amb la percussió i altres elements, confeccionen un directe ric en textures i colors.

Després de gravar un EP el 2017 on hi podiem trobar una mescla entre estandards de jazz, musica popular i temes propis, estan preparant un àlbum pel 2020, ja una personalitat pròpia, bevent de la música popular catalana, ibèrica i sudamericana, amb la poesia com un element important, i sempre des d’una vessant creativa i amb la improvisació com a element conductor.

Manel Fortia (www.manelfortia.com) is a creative and expressive jazz and flamenco bassist based in NYC. He has worked with some awarded musicians such as Arturo O’Farrill, Chris Cheek, Chano Dominguez, Oscar PeñasHis huge melodic sense and deep sound has converted him in one of the most demanded and original bassist of the new generation.

This duo is so special and impresive because it creates a unique combination of grooves and melodies using only her voice and his upright bass (also as a percussion instrument). Iberian rythms and Mediterranean folklore over an American jazz base creates this great mixture that makes this group fresh, original and successful in live.

This 2020, they will release a new album called Fang & Nuvols(Mud & Clouds). It is a mix of original compositions, musical poetry and a mix of Iberian and South American folkore. A great album than reflects a huge complicity and interaction as the driving thread that takes us on a journey through different cultures and exotic landscapes.
