The group Candelaria, is formed by some of the members of elbicho and have been letting their imagination run wild, as far as composing music is concerned, since 2004. Each one, has followed a widely varied professional career over the years to later join together, in more recent times, to produce a consolidated album from this new, but at the same time, mature theme. Individual musicians, that take part in other projects have joined forces and talents have established a connection and a way of communicating using their instruments. And they have a lot to say.

This record, Bo Djubi Songh, is an invitation to contemplate and experience celebration from the purest conscience of delight. “Take notice” the lyrics say in Kiriol, but which, in reality, speak the overwhelming universal language of great music. This album is a journey that transports you through landscapes of sound and cascades of images ranging from jazz to rhythm and blues with touches of folk.

Improvisation created by accomplices, balancing between knowing, doing, feeling, sensations and suggestive memories, make up the content of this new record, an intense eulogy of music link emotion, and rthymn to the body. A metropolitan encounter with tribal forces, the roots of funk and the sophistication of “other music”.

On this ocassion, they have been able to count on collaborations from musicians, such as, the guitarist Israel Sandoval, Madrid’s children chorus from the Aula de Musicas, and the Cuban percussion artist, Ernesto “el Chino” Roque.

Candelaria, their first record came out in 2008, and it opened the doors to jazz festivals and world music on a national and international scale. Now with this second album, newly created acoustics of earth and innovative electric sound are brought back to us.

Juan Carlos Aracil- flute; Mario Díaz- keyboard; Antonio Mangas- drums; Fran Mangas- saxophone; Jesús Mañeru- percussion; Mû- voice y percussion; Carlos Tato- bass and the last but certainly not least, Álvaro Barco- sound technician, are all those responsable for this musical exclamation, both in and out of the studio.

This work uses energy and daring to a point where all these artists blend their talent and nervousness together in order to present us with pure sincere music.
