The director of the Canary Islands Jazz Festival for three decades, Miguel Ramírez, from Colorado Productions, heads the poster of Talks Xperiencias, with which next Friday starts at the Insular Theater Hall (SIT) a new edition of FEX, the Festival of Musical Creativity and Experimentation Directed by Ángel Clavijo.
Talks Xperiencias are talks led by professionals from the creative industries that, on this occasion, “will revolve around the reinvention of the cultural sector in the current situation of paralysis of the sector as a result of Covid-19”, according to Clavijo.
Starting at 6:00 p.m. next FridayRamírez himself will participate in them, who will tell details of the history of the jazz festival and the peculiarities of a last edition marked by the pandemic; the technical event producer Jesus Romeo ‘Jesse’, professor of the degrees of Film and Protocol and Organization of Events at the Universidad del Atlántico Medio who produces most of the events held at the Gran Canaria Arena, and the musician Daniel Medina, who will explain the reasons that led him to undertake his project Briliank TV, with which he intends to spread the music and culture made in the Canary Islands.
After these interventions, at 7:00 p.m., the performance of the Gran Canaria band will take place The Bucannan, whose sound has been defined as “an ultra-vitamin cocktail with three essential ingredients: sharp guitar infused with abundant reverb, a wild drums with cave rhythms and a hypnotic bass”. Among his influences: Dick Dale, Link Wray, The Cramps, The Trashmen, The Glories, The Straitjackets and Lost Acapulco.
Already on Saturday, but from 8:00 p.m., they will perform at the SIT Diego Hernandez, whose long career makes him one of the most respected artists on the Canarian music scene and who will present his new work, ‘Confined Landscapes’, recorded between last March and June, thus coinciding with the first wave of the pandemic, and Nimañana, a group made up of Octavio Limiñana, Ner Suárez, Italo de la Guardia and Alejandro Heron that defines itself as a “cockroach pop-rock band”.
Nimañana’s first EP (eponymous), which lands via Sweet Grooves Record (SWEET046) and Family Spree Recordings (FSR062) on 7 “vinyl, contains four fierce, cavernous and reverberated cuts. The album was recorded at La Caterva studios ( Gran Canaria) directed by Jose A. López, a recording that was made live in order to capture the real sound of the band, primitive and wild.
