The Legendary Tigerman: Goodbye to the man orchestra

The Portuguese orchestra man Paolo Furtado, aka The Legendary Tigerman, leaves the format alone to launch his sixth album, 'Misfit' (Sony Music), a double with a part ballad and another rocker, so much that his rock grows in the wake of the stadium Black Keys. 'Misfit' was recorded in the Californian desert of Joshua Tree, in the Rancho de La Luna studio, owned by David Catching, the guitarist of the Eagles Of Death Metal (the group whose concert in the Bataclan hall was massacred by Islamist terrorist shooters; we always think that if we had been in Paris that day, we would have gone to see the Death Metal Eagles), the same studio where they recorded Queens Of The Stone Age, Arctic Monkeys, Iggy Pop, Foo Fighters …

Paolo Furtado, who like 'one man band' or man orchestra before he played drums, harmonica and guitar besides singing, all at the same time, is now accompanied by Paulo Segadães (drums), Filipe Rocha (bass) and João Cabrita (baritone saxophone) ). From Monday to Saturday of this week he goes on uninterrupted Spanish tour with the following itinerary: Seville, Madrid, Alicante, Bilbao (Thursday at Kafe Antzokia), Vitoria (Friday at Hell Dorado) and San Sebastian (Saturday at Intxaurrondo).

Bely Basarte: From YouTube to Disney

María de Belén Basarte Mena, from Madrid, 27 years old, became famous by uploading versions of other people's songs to YouTube, such as Pereza. In 2017 he signed for Disney to sing in the Spanish version of the film 'Beauty and the Beast', assuming the role of Bella, no more, no less. And in 2018 he debuted in full length with 'Desde mi otro cuarto', an album published by the multinational Universal Music.

The information of his Bilbao concert reads: «Bely Basarte is light and mystery, it is sensuality and harmony, it is the one that waits patiently in the night for dawn to invent an infinite world, full of challenges and creations to give to all who dare to dream about her But above all Bely is a total artist, able to move in the networks as a fish in the water and then get on a stage and offer a show within reach of few. Her creative capacity places her on a new level when it comes to the music industry, having been able to open a new path where self-management of her resources, knowledge of the digital environment and her own inspiration when singing and composing they unify and form an amalgam that will serve as an example to many young artists of the future ».

In March he gave a concert with this setlist: 'I feel bad', 'To have been in Madrid', 'Butterflies',' Wounds', 'Damn you win', 'Meanwhile', 'Mathematics of the flesh', 'December and you're not ',' I can not live without you '(Coque Malla's version), '50 things about me', 'Dark gray', 'Perpendicular', 'Via de escape', 'And when not', 'No te I want to see you cry ',' Another half 'and' We are fire '.

Paco Candela: Sevillanas caballistas

Between El Fary and Juanito Valderrama seems to resonate the rociero and horseman Paco Candela, born in Mairena del Aljarafe, Seville, 47 years ago. Since childhood he has been immersed in flamenco clubs, and he also spent five years singing in a show with animals in the water park 'Isla Mágica'. The Barcelona Forum has recently been sold out, with a capacity of 2,400 people, mostly daughters of internal emigration.

National Prize Radiolé 2016 and Andalusian Prize of the year in Catalonia in 2017, Candela canta sevillanas, peteneras, tangos, fandangos, ballads and rumbas. It still beats his penultimate album 'El poder de la música', with fifteen songs like the 'Let's Learn from Children', the believer 'Ay Rocío', the idiosyncratic 'Andalucía', the horse riding 'Mi caballo' and 'Caballo de cartón' ',' A million caps' or the version by Miguel Gallardo 'Today I want you'.

But Paco is presenting his latest album 'My World', with titles like 'Even if I break my soul', 'The day I die', 'Prisoner of your eyes',' The field wakes up 'or the equestrian' Mi little Amazon '. Other songs that Paco sings are 'La escopeta', 'Tú no eres caballista' or the proud 'I'll stay in the field'.

The concert will last approximately 90 minutes and will be developed in sextet with this line-up: to cante, Paco Candela; to the musical direction and the flamenco guitar, Víctor Óscar Fernández Luque; to percussion, Jorge Emilio Pérez Aguilar; to keyboards, Antonio Jesús García García; on bass, Jorge Cordero Herrera; and to the violin, Fayçal Kourrich Ben Taieb.

El Sebas de la Calle: The rumba of the outskirts

Catalan father and mother from Extremadura, the blue-eyed payo El Sebas de la Calle has worked mostly as a junkman with his van, and also in factories, in street vending and street sweepers. And on the weekends he would sing for the bars, passing the cap. He assures that he has always sung rumba, that the body asks him to, that he does not know how to sing anything else and that he has not signed up for the car because nobody else does. He says that in his songs he only tells everyday things that happen to him or his friends. In Bilbao and Logroño he will perform with a guitar, cajón and three voices.

His name is Sebastián Pallarés Santos, he was born in 1984 in the outskirts of Barcelona, ​​in the Lower Llobregat, and he married at the age of 17. His videos are very popular on YouTube and El Sebas has two albums that perpetuate the rhythm of El Pescaílla, Peret, Los Amaya, Rumba 3, Los Chunguitos or Los Chichos and which are entitled 'Melodies and Pastimes' and 'My Truth', the which entered the 12th position of sales immediately after leaving and without any promotion.

The Berrones: 14 years without stepping on Euskadi

They sing in Asturian The Berrones, paladins of the agro-rock toned in bable. They met there in 1987, in the village of Tolivia, when they were more punks. More than 30 years later, Ramón Blanco and Olegario Méndez remain in their line-up. In 2019 they released the album '¿Ónde vas con eses traces?' ', Which they disclose on the 30-year tour (more, we insist) and describe: "This album has enough of that rest and maceration that some themes need . As in all our albums, there are some slopes that remain: the cheerful and carefree songs, the social themes and the rural environment in which we move. There is a residue of disenchantment with the world we are seeing, with the defeatist conformism of the people and at the same time the usual touches of irony, self-assurance and good humor. It contains, perhaps, the most worked letters of all the discography. We are happy to celebrate more than 30 years with these issues, I think they can define, in essence, what Los Berrones are ».

Los Berrones had not performed in Euskadi for 14 years and this is the first concert of the album '¿Ónde vas con eses traces? outside of Asturias.

The Electric Alley: Sudistas de Cádiz

The Cadiz The Electric Alley presents their third album, 'Turning Wheels', 11 hard rock songs with southern touches and up to the top, as the promo proposes, adding that the Andalusian quartet is committed to the most classic of his essence, adding dyes of soul, blues and melodic rock to his new compositions without leaving aside the hard rock of high revolutions that characterizes him.

"With influences from Led Zeppelin to The Black Crowes, and more contemporary bands like Rival Sons or Blackberry Smoke, they evoke the energy and passion that every lover of live rock seeks." The Electric Alley has performed abroad (France, United Kingdom, Holland, Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Slovakia …), and ends the promotion: "Four musicians who evoke the energy and passion that every lover of the genre seeks to see an concert". We have copied them all because, listening to the album, it is perceived that what they tell about them is not a lie. No exaggeration.

Álvaro Ruiz: Better than El Kanka

The Sevillian Alvaro Ruiz is the guitarist of the successful flamenco El Kanka. And we do not say it for missing anyone, but Álvaro is much better than his boss, at the same time more stylish and more comprehensive of rhythms: from Latin to country, from ragtime to rumbita lolaila. Álvaro has played reggae with El Bastón de la Vieja, accompanied by singer-songwriter Adriana Moragues and now he is simultaneously working for El Kanka with his solo career, which already has two albums: 'Ritmo y Compás' (17) and the new' El bee-eater '(19). It is also better than Zenet, we already write to put calluses involuntarily.

It informs the promotion about its novelty: "We could say that the flight of the bee-eater is an ode to the cyclical, to the round trip, to the learning of the day to day, to the challenges that the same trip sometimes gives you. The bee-eater is a migratory bird and in a certain way is used as an anthropological allegory between the singer-songwriter, the bee-eater and the music. Eleven original songs recorded live at El Tercero Estudios (Barcelona) to capture the freshness and nature of the musicians. (…) including the collaborations of Pedro Pastor and Las Migas ».
