Julieta Guerrero &The Flippers is the special gathering of the young argentinian composer and songwriter, and the Danish folk musicians Claus Raahauge, Michael Torfing and Mikkel Olrick. The generational and cultural contrast creates a unique mixture of sounds in the actual European scene, with strong Indie roots, brushed up, harmonized and mellowed by the Danish-folk influence that combine new sounds with instruments like transverse flute, violin, double bass, mandolin and 12 string guitar.
The band comes together in 2015 when Julieta Guerrero releases her debut album “Puertas” and tours in Europe around Madrid, Roma, Graz, Viena, Prague, Bratislava, Copenhague, London and Berlin, city where she meets the percussionist Claus Raahauge and play together at the Festivals Rock am Löschteich and Fete de la Musique. The musical connection was strong and the tour goes on all over Denmark during 2016. Having a big impact on people, the project became established to continue a promising multi-cultural path with a new tour in 2017.
