Martirio & Chano Domínguez
Musics for Summer Nights (Spanish songs)
Chano Domínguez, piano
To Bola de Nieve
Tribute to Ignacio Jacinto Villa Fernández “Bola de Nieve” on the 50th anniversary of his death
Concert with no interval
On Either Side of the Pond
After more than a decade since those unforgettable concerts that left two equally memorable albums (Coplas de madrugá, Acoplados) in which Spanish-style singing and jazz merged happily, Martirio and Chano Domínguez once again join their paths to pay tribute to a great Cuban musician in the fiftieth anniversary of his death. His name was Ignacio Jacinto Villa Fernández, but he was known as Bola de Nieve. An absolute master of filin, that genre in which bolero and jazz intersect, Bola really transcended genres with his cosmopolitan charm, which allowed him to triumph in half the world for his admirable ability to fuse different rhythms and harmonies, but also with his humanity, his tenderness and his poignant expressiveness. A noble challenge between two great Andalusian artists meeting a brother from the other side of the pond.
