ENG: Singer-songwriter Tori Sparks brings Nashville to Barcelona, with a concert "in the round" at Nota79. Advance tickets on sale now here.
This format, typical of Music City but wholly unknown to Barcelona, is when three songwriters -- sometimes friends and musical partners, sometimes total strangers -- take the stage together and offer their original songs in the most stripped-down, acoustic format possible. Spontaneous collaborations, audience participation, the story behind the song, sneak previews of brand new and unreleased music... at these concerts anything can happen. It is an opportunity to hear your favorite artists share their music in an intimate setting, and at the same time, discover more music by other talented songwriters.
The concert of the series "Barcelona In The Round" will feature Tori and the two musical collaborators who shared the stage with her the Glass Mountain Records 10th Anniversary Concert at Marula Cafe this past October. Presenting: Carlos Mendoza and Alba Bioque.
Carlos Mendoza is singer and guitarist of the Venezuelan rock band Luz Verde - nominated for a Latin Grammy for their album 'El Final Del Mundo Vol. II: Nothing Is Impossible' - and is is also part of the Rock ’n’ Rumba band Alma de Boquerón. Gifted with an unassuming sense of humor and the stage presence of a true rockstar, Carlos brings an explosive energy to the stage that breaks strings, hearts, and transforms any concert setting into the feeling of a stadium show.
Alba Bioque is a native of Barcelona, a singer and composer with flamenco roots, who has just released her first solo album, 'Alvorigen.' Her golden voice contains an infinite range of expression, from sweet and fragile to passionate and fiery. She can silence a room with just a note. Alba is also sought after as a backup singer: She contributed harmonies to the last album by Tori Sparks + Calamento, 'La Huerta,' the 'Somrius' album by Enricez, and various other projects.
In Marula Cafe they played just a couple of songs each, which left the audience asking for more. In this concert the three artists will present more of their own original material with some surprise collaborations. Prepare for a very special night.
Tickets: 6 euros in advance/8 euros at the door
