Nacho Arimany / World-Flamenco Septet
Silence-Light is flamenco percussionist and composer Nacho Arimany’s debut album. The great creativy and power of Javier Vercher is present on saxophone and percussion atmospheres. Lionel Loueke is on amazing guitars from Africa and other galaxies; joined with his personal and unique voice. Pablo Suarez supports the melodies with the piano; the flamenco harmony going beyond his own gipsy soul. The great voice and talent of the flamenco gipsy singer Antonio Campos and the superb jazz bass sound of Massimo Biolcati, work in real tandem with flamenco dancer Concha Jareno, who gives new percussive melodies and feelings to the music. This fantastic group of musicians got together to record at Systems Two Studio in New York in the Spring of 2006. This work is a journey through different worlds and feelings. The real compromise with music as an experience to share in freedom.
Silence-Light, was considered by All About Jazz one of the Top ten Jazz Albums of 2007.
“Percussionist, musician and nearly a musical philosopher inasmuch as his ideas are dense and open to the world, Nacho Arimany, himself is a sort of great percussion wizard who leans on very solid knowledge to deliver real musical journeys.” – LA ABEILLE MUSIQUE MAGAZINE (FRANCE)
