MAGALI SARE & MANEL FORTIÀ returns with their second album based on maritime routes, Ibero-American folklore and exciting fusions that break all stylistic boundaries while moving us with their characteristic sound.

The Catalan singer and double bass player continue to make their way together and surprise us once again with an album inspired by sea trips and the cultural exchanges that they caused in the past. Today it is no longer necessary to take a boat to discover and learn from new cultures, which is why the duo's source of inspiration has been creating imaginary routes and musical fusions that give meaning to each of the songs on this album.

Returning home after learning new rhythms and melodies makes us strengthen our own roots and allows them to be transformed without losing their essence.

We are facing a fresh, original, and mature album, where the instrumental part is no longer limited only to Manel Fortià's double bass, as in the previous album "Fang i Núvols" (2020). Here we also find the percussion as well as flutes, background vocals, bass ukulele and other small percussions that add to the sound spectrum of the band, making Magalí Sare’s voice shine with even greater intensity and gives character to this 21st century Ibero-American folklore.

This duo played in different festivals such as Südtirol Jazz Festival, The pheasantry (London), Festival Ibérica (Prague and Brno), Zvuk for Štiavnica (Slovakia), Festival Polirítmia (Spain), Inca jazz (Balearic Islands), Festival de jazz de Vitoria, Kiosque à Musique (Antibes), Budapest Music Center, Unterfahrt jazz club (Munich), Jazzfreunde Bad Ischl, Budapest Ritmo (Budapest), Commoning art Festival (Münsten), Festival Immaterial (Portugal) among other places.


'I was very impressed by the voice and there was something so sublime about their interpretation of the song by Simon Diaz especially, so much I'm sure the maestro himself would have loved it too.' - Sheila, Jazzwise

‘The vocal-bass jazz duo is not an easy one to carry off but they were very convincing and musical. They had an excellent chemistry and were able to improvise with a supple elegance. I thought their inventivereinterpretation of the Beatles' 'Michelle' was the best I'd ever heard of the song! I feel they would appeal very much to the London-based jazz audience.’ - Selwin Harris, Jazzwise
