Trubador

28/07/2019

TRUBADOR has already created a stir in the world of music. Miron’s long-awaited debut, although deeply rooted in the jazz tradition, perfectly combines other styles of music ranging from Afro-Cuban rhythms to Arabic, Balkan and flamenco music. His compositions flow melodically and the level of musicality and improvisation in this album are at a very high level.

‘My music is a mixture of everything that has influenced me throughout my life. My compositions are not filtered by a style, a genre or a tradition, but rather by my own ear and taste, with the hope of fusing beautiful melodies, be they simple or complex, with rich and elegant harmonies. I am trying to deepen and touch any listener with an open mind and ear, always maintaining a high level of respect for the art of music. ‘

Miron has the pleasure of having as guest artists on the album landmarks of the flamenco world such as JORGE PARDO on the flute, ANTONIO SERRANO on the harmonica and ISRAEL SUAREZ PIRAÑA on the cajón, the three known for their collaborations with the great PACO DE LUCÍA.
