The Castilian project "Castijazz", by Carlos Soto, founder and flutist of Celtas Cortos and Awen Magic Land, lands at the Ramón Alonso Luzzy Cultural Center, at the hand of the Cartagena Folk Festival, this Thursday, June 7, at 20: 30 hours.
This project was born after Soto received the European Prize for New Creation of Folklore "Agapito Marazuela" in April 2011 for this work.
With root music in the spotlight, Carlos Soto proposes a musical journey around the world based on Iberian rhythms and melodies.
For it, it feeds on all the cultures that have passed through the peninsula over the centuries;
Sephardic music, Mudejar art and Celtic music are mixed with the Mediterranean and Atlantic influences.
The work of Carlos Soto has been praised by Radio 3 for its "proven quality and its continuous search for new languages â€‹â€‹based on tradition".
In 2016 he represented Spain at the UER folk festival held in Estonia.
The group gets carried away by the fusion of popular melodies and traditional inspiration with root music from different cultures of the world and approaches the Castilian music from a different perspective giving it a new sonority.
Cartagena Folk will continue to develop from Friday 9 and until Sunday 10 June at the Port of Cartagena, with a food fair of Food Trucks, Crafts, DJs, entertainment groups, activities for children, all free.
