La canción de la semana #585

Continuing with jazz: this week's song is Diga Diga Doo by the wonderful Valencian Le Dancing Pepa Swing Band. I was lucky to see their performance two weeks ago at the Mar i Jazz festival.

La canción de la semana #584

Yesterday I went to see Gran Canaria Big Band playing in the gardens of Palau de la Música de València. Now on their 20th anniversary tour, GCBB were presenting Jazzethnic, the program based on fusion of modern jazz and Canarian folklore. OK, perhaps that doesn't sound terribly exciting but believe me, it was a magical night that any jazz lover (even of the Canarian folklore-hating variety) would enjoy. A lot. I also learned, much to my surprise, that GCBB has its roots in Valencia.

This week's song is Chipude by José Antonio Ramos as interpreted by GCBB, with invited timplista Germán López.

...is famous Pajarillo by the Venezuelan Ángel Custodio Loyola. I like the version by the Chilean singer Elizabeth Morris, from the Chilean singer's 2012 album Pájaros.
