JEITO is a company from Gran Canaria born in 2008 and dedicated to management, booking and the production of diverse cultural activities. Since its foundation we’ve been closely linked to jazz and world music, among other styles. We represent the young and outstanding timple player Germán López.
The “timple” is the representative musical instrument of the Canary Islands. In fact, for many years it has been used only as an accompanist in folk music. However, in recent years, musicians like Germán López have made it a solo instrument able to perform in different musical environments such as world music, jazz and flamenco. Germán has been programmed in significant events such as the WOMAD festivals in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Cáceres and Fuerteventura, also in the prestigious concert series “Girando por Salas”, sponsored by the spanish Culture Ministry. “De Raíz” (“From the roots”) is the brand new recording of Germán López. He has performed with great artists and bands such as Pancho Amat, Milladoiro, Jorge Pardo, Mestisay, Celina Pereira, Sidiki Diabaté, The Lost Fingers, Nancy Vieira and many others.
