Colina, Carmona, Serrano & Barrueta
“Veinte, Veinte” (Twenty, Twenty) is the gathering of four of the most important talents of the current national music scene. It is the conjunction of different languages, sensibilities and experiences. Javier Colina (Pamplona, 1960) is an international referral point in double bass playing and he puts his instrument at the service of genre mixing, from jazz to flamenco or Cuban traditional music. His cooperation with musicians such as Tete Montoliu, Bebo and Chucho Valdes, Diego “El Cigala” or Enrique Morente are already an integral part of our musical tradition.
Josemi Carmona (Madrid, 1971) represents the recent history of flamenco and fusion. Son of the maestro Pepe Habichuela, he continued the legacy of four generations of artists, first with the band that shook up the new flamenco, Ketama, and later through his solo work or through his work with Paco de Lucia, Carles Benavent, Jorge Drexler or Dave Holland.
Antonio Serrano (Madrid, 1974) is a harmonica virtuoso and has become a reference within Spanish jazz while being able to naturally get close to flamenco sounds, blues or pop. He was a member of Paco de Lucia´s band during its latest 10 years and he has worked with many European symphonic orchestras.
Borja Barrueta (Bilbao, 1975) built his first drum set as a child with a cardboard box, a bucket and a canary cage. His mastery and versatility have taken him to accompany on stage artists like Jorge Drexler, Perico Sambeat, Jorge Pardo, Ara Malikian, Niño Josele or Joe Lovano as well as to participate in recordings side by side with Lee Towsend or Suso Saiz and to work with composers like Alberto Iglesias.
