LA NEGRA: Amparo Velasco was born an artist even if she didn’t know at the time. Jazz and African and Latin rhythms share presence with the unavoidable flamenco roots. 2016 has come to be the year she gets her well deserved recognition as an artist that knows how to move people with her songs.
RADIO COS: Xurxo Fernandes and Quique Peón, singers and percussionists are a reference when it comes to Galician music. They’ve been on the road through Belgium, England, Scotland and Galicia communicating their own way of understanding Galician traditional music.
NIÑO DE ELCHE: This cantaor is the man of the hour. His stage skills and performance manage to concentrate the essence of flamenco, electronica, rock, dancing and vocal experimentation.
