The kick-off of the 35th edition of the Cartagena Jazz Festival will be this Saturday October 31 in the Nuevo Teatro Circo, with concerts by Benjamin Clementine and Silvia Perez Cruz.

In his broken voice, piano keys that accompany their cries, there is a hypnotic mystery. Benjamin Clementine (London, 1988) is a difficult riddle to decipher, which was enjoyed in Cartagena, the Sea of Music 2014 in his first performance in Spain.

He had not yet submitted their first job At Least For Now, in arriving at the Cartagena Jazz Festival.

A good story, sometimes, seems to stand a good music.

Both acquired prominence in the end, the songs seem not important, and how important is the character you play them.

When speaking English musician Benjamin Clementine, speaking mainly in its history: how he left school at 16, he had an encounter with his family and escaped from Edmonton to end homeless in Camden;

About two years later, in Paris, he slept on the streets, before living in a hostel.

As much as he dislikes just ask him about it, Clementine supports the importance of this experience, living on the street, in his music and, above all, his singing, which still resonates despair of those days .

Despite his repeated comparison by music critics with Nina Simone, the theatricality of his performances and his style is all his own.

It is the beginning of many advertised as a big one.

Care, it sounds so beautiful it's hard not to fall in love, she told Santiago Auserˇn Diego Manrique in an interview about the singer Silvia Perez Cruz.

And it must be true, they still heard raves about this creature born in Calella de Palafrugell (Girona) in 1983. Superlatives come from jazz, flamenco, film, dance ...

Silvia has several gifts, singing as they should do the sirens and generates an unlimited empathy is fresh and captivating, warm and enveloping, and has an enviable expertise in diverse languages ÔÇőÔÇőand styles.

Besides vocal exuberance that astonishes.

You can get anywhere, savor the songs as if she were a full orchestra or choir.

The Trouper┬┐s Swing Band translates and transforms the neo-swing style cla┬┐sicos big swing and rockabilly of 30┬┐s, 40┬┐s and 50┬┐s, asi┬┐ as purely neo-swing revisits themes of 90┬┐s of the bands mentioned above with the difference that the band writes its own text in Castilian.
