  • [Manal] - (2022)


The testimonies, by the protagonists themselves, shed light not only on a meeting that was witnessed by very few people, but also on the history, personalities, music, philosophy and legacy of Manal.  Javier Martínez, Claudio Gabis and Alejandro Medina they had the enormous doses of audacity and talent that were necessary for the creation of a new genre, Blues in Spanish.

MEDINA | Manal left a huge, deep mark. And we have to take charge of that by playing very well and loving it to be able to enjoy it without anger, without ghosts, without delusions, that's why we're great. See reality, take charge of the animal part to better enjoy the musical kingdom.

GABIS | We arrived at the Red House concert sufficiently rehearsed and emotionally and technically united enough to be able to return to unforeseen music, which was what always characterized Manal, a music very close to jazz in its achievements and in our projections of that the themes were living things and not structures to be repeated mechanically and without graces.

MARTINEZ | Even if you don't like it, you have to be controlled. It takes a lot of concentration, and if you spend a little bit of the dose you already lose your reflexes, you start to get delirious. The music we made is not Bèla Bartók, but it is not simple either, it is quite complex music, it has strange drum patterns, it has bass arrangements that only Negro understands, it has harmony that Claudio invented, that only he knows.
