Azuleo · Flamenco, Jazz

Azuleo · Flamenco, Jazz

Music is feeling and passion – and the young musicians from Azuleo mix these properties with the fresh air of the four cardinal points. Their musical background has flamenco and jazz influences, Arabic sounds and Spanish folklore. Romanticism, tradition and innovation: this international ensemble shines with his own light, given by virtuous guitar, full expressive singing, amazing saxophone sounds, electrifying bass lines and temperamental percussion beats.

Azuleo was born in Berlin´s multicultural quarter Neukölln in 2011. The first album ”Contigo”, released 2013, sold already over 600 copies and was presented all around Europe and Brazil in two tours. The talented musicians from Azuleo were considered breakout flamenco artists and the new second album will be out in summer 2014.

Musicians
Abel Sánchez: guitar
Elena Botica: vocals, flutes
Jonas Fehrenberg: bass and cajón
Joseph Carpentier: saxophone
Romeo Natour: percussion and cajón

Azuleo also works with guest artists like flamenco dancers.

Press cuts
”Some fusion music works, some doesn’t and some simply sounds so natural that it doesn’t sound like fusion at all; this is what Azuleo sounds like! The Spanish/French/German/Palestine flamenco group ”Azuleo” mix Middle Eastern flutes; Spanish flamenco guitar, percussion and vocals; along with jazz tempos; all of which is topped off with the dulcet, honey-sweet vocals of Elena Botica. The virtuous guitar rhythms of Abel Sánchez are a pleasure to the ears, the jazz element is added by Joseph Carpentier on saxophone and Jonas Fehrenberg on bass, while the deep rhythmic, almost tribal passions of flamenco are brought to life by Romeo Natour on the cajón. Furthermore, Natour and Botica adds Eastern musical sounds on the flute on some tracks along with Natour creating an array of percussion patterns of various inspirations.” (World Music Travel Blog, Jenny O´Connor)

”Azuleo´s Cd is a wonderful surprise. Its´collection of twelve selections certainly offers up a variety of sounds. Tight ensemble playing, creative arrangements, and memorable singing all come together in this expressive uniquely original CD with solid musicianship. Members are connected in the same improvisational pulse. Each track is tuneful and rhythmic with multi-layered grooves, splashes of Middle Eastern flavors and lilting soundscapes. Loaded with musical energy, their tunes meander their way across the enthusiastic musica terrain creating inspiring & infectious rhythms.” (Did somebody say flamenco? Blog, California)
