Brothers In Jazz 2019
Calle de Sebastián Elcano, 12, 28012 Madrid - https://goo.gl/maps/PpCjHr36K7H2
Friday 18th to Sunday 20th of January 2019
Duration: 3 days
"The crossroad" ... its the place where paths meet, where several styles converge. It is also the name of a song by a Delta Blues singer Robert Johnson, in which he refers to the mythology that he met at a crossroads with the devil and sold his soul in exchange for his musical talent.
For Big Mama, this name has a lot of strength, because it implies that we combine all the cultures from which the swing culture drinks: blues, the African roots (of which it was influenced during its existence), the Latin culture that coexisted with it, from the influence of Cuban music, like the habanera in jazz, and all the Cuban musicians who played in New Orleans at the dawn of jazz music, even the coexistence in recent years of the swing with the mambo in the Savoy (you can see in "Spirit Moves" several people who appear dancing mambo and lindy hop.) It includes the evolution of our dances: bebop, hip hop (that emanates from the African-American and Latin culture of the Bronx and Harlem.)
Brothers in jazz is a solo dance festival that opens a space where all these influences can meet.... a Crossroad!
