SWING II

Mikrofilm, together with the collaboration of the Swing Side Association of Bilbao, presents the second Swing dance meeting in Plentzia.
– Bilbao Lindy Band Collective will be the band in charge of entertaining with swing music and lindy hop live. The band is comprised of 5 Basque jazz musicians who, once again, will interpret the most popular standards of the New York swing era of the 20-50s.
– Lindy Hop is an American dance that was born in Harlem, New York in 1928 and during the 30s-40s, swing`s golden age, it became very popular in all dance halls where swing music was played.

BASABI

BASABI is the name of a group formed by 6 musicians and a dancer from different artistic worlds, whose main intention is to bring a show that does not understand purism.
The violin, the viola, the double bass and the harp join the txalaparta to create a sonic world that serves as the basis for our great protagonist, the dance.
After an intense investigation we came to the conclusion that traditional music has undeniable similarities that cross the borders of all peoples. Thus, with our first show, which we have called Bakun, we make a synthesis of what we want to offer: popular music for everyone.
Bakun is a show aimed at a diverse and restless audience. Through the use of elements of our culture and accompaniment of popular music, we have created a visual journey full of nuances that awaken the viewer’s imagination.

THE RENEGADOS

The Renegados is the chosen baptism by four musicians from Bilbao with extensive careers on their backs. Contrary to what the name could suggest, these four volume- lover outlaws, the valves and the twin guitars don`t deny or abjure their beliefs; Rock.

As an introduction, the Dead Man’s Hands, a four songs E. P. recorded in Koba Studios. What we are going to find in this work are four cuts in Spanish, with a sound focused on the hard rock of the seventies, full of forceful riffs and voices that seek both, power and melody, guitar solos with smoke aroma and bourbon, all wrapped up in long and lysergic instrumental developments.

The sound of The Renegados is like a polyhedron, combined with blues and boogie mixed with rock, southern rock in full symbiosis with British hard rock, well seasoned with bits and pieces of psychedelia to complete the personal sound universe of The Renegados , an impeccable live full of groove and distortion.
